Web browsers are applications used primarily to display documents, files and media from the Internet, identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that can be a page, image, video or other file. Some browsers require the use of add-ons or extensions to safely render the information they receive; others have systems built into them to perform the same functions.

I'm looking for a CDN that's free or affordable for videos like YouTube. However, I don't want to use YouTube for other reasons. I would like to upload videos, and once they're uploaded have them playable onto a website. Any recommendations?

On Demand Webinar: Networking for the Cloud Era

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

I'm using a Chrome browser and I noticed something weird on one of our sub-domains. if I clear or change local storage, when I refresh the page, the old settings are restored. I have tried to clear at the command line, via Application > Storage > localStorage and Application > storage (hit clear). Regardless I have no idea how to prevent this or get around this issue. Is this an application setting?

I created a webpage that uses JQWidget to produce 3 graphs. The page displays fine initially but as the graphs refresh to display new data the Google Chrome crashing due to it running out of memory to view the page. (bug doesn't occur in Firefox or Chrome)

Aw, Snap! Google Chrome ran out of memory while trying to display this webpage.

I realize the graphs might use a lot of resources but I only have this issue in Chrome even after I clear the cache.

I am using Modernizr to detect if autoplay is available in the browser. Then, I am displaying either a video or a Javascript-based slide show depending on the result. Here is my code:

videoAutoPlayCheck=setInterval(videoCheckAutoPlay, 1000);
videoCheckAutoPlay();

function videoCheckAutoPlay(){
	Modernizr.on('videoautoplay', function(result){
		if (Modernizr.videoautoplay){
			//PLAY VIDEO
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		} else {
			//PLAY SLIDE SHOW
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		}
	});
}

Open in new window


I am getting unpredictable results in Chrome, however this seems to be working in all other browsers. Researching the issue on Google, there are posts from a couple years ago describing what I am seeing. However, I would have thought that enough time has passed that Modernizr would have fixed that issue.

To describe what is happening, sometimes Chrome loads the video, sometimes the slide show. There doesn't seem to be any way to predict... in fact, sometimes reloading the page brings the opposite result as the previous page load.

Is there anything wrong with my code, or is this still a known issue with Modernizr? Or should I be looking for some other solution?

Thank you.

I would like to remove the duplicate entry for Edge but I am unable to find a command for it.
Please see the attached image for reference of command and output

Any ideas?  Your help is appreciated

We have group policy in place to block ALL websites
Then we use Whitelist to allow certain websites such as google.com

Im having issues using the URL White list to allow our internal network so we can access printers and other devices.
I need to allow all IPs on the following networks
192.168.1.0/24
192.168.2.0/24
192.168.3.0/24

I have tried adding the following to the white-list but i still get blocked access
192.168.*
192.168
192.168.*
192.168.=&

What is the correct syntax for allowing all those IPs?

I am fighting an issue with IE 11 constantly crashing on a users computer. Win 7 Pro 64 bit. I have included a picture of the event viewer error. It names the faulting module as ntdll.dll Here is what I have tried so far:

Uninstalled and reinstalled IE11
Updated, Java, Flash, Silverlight
Reinstalled Abode Reader DC
Ran sfc /scannow, no violations found
I ran autoruns for Windows and disabled some missing files et cet
I tried some different IE settings but no change
I have Googled the ntdll.dll error but am not sure how to resolve this issue without a wipe and reinstall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the past month I have been chasing an annoying problem. Something is crashing the mouse driver on my Win2k8 server, causing the mouse (but not the keyboard) to freeze. I have been remedying this by restarting in Safe Mode and deleting the USB Hubs in Device manager. The OS then reinstalls them and all is well until the next time. Recently, I have begun to suspect Google Chrome as the cause. I notice that I'm usually working in Chrome when the freeze occurs. This last time I noted that I had 6 tabs open and TaskManager shows 20 instances of Chrome open using a total of 1.9 GB of memory. With 8gb of memory installed, is this a problem? It didn't used to be. Do I have a memory leak and if so, what can I do about it? (I already uninstalled and re-installed Chrome)

Hi all
I have an access database that contains addresses. I need to be able to click on a button that will open the chrome browser, navigate to https://earth.google.com/web/ and, getting the data from the fields in the database, navigate to that address.  Everyone is allowed to use either IE, Chrome, or Firefox as their browser but Google Earth will only work in Chrome so I need it to open Chrome specifically.

Thank you

This text below was found when I searched www.google.se and had the setting "Pages written in Swedish":

Landing slot, takeoff slot eller airport slot (egentlig en «luke») er en rettighet flyplasseier selger til et flyselskap som gir dette en mulighet til å tilpasse sine

(https://www.google.se/search?q=%22landing+slot%22&lr=lang_sv&newwindow=1&hl=sv&as_qdr=all&tbs=lr:lang_1sv&ei=B1Y9WZO7KYiW8QXZ3pOwAw&start=0&sa=N&biw=1366&bih=638)

But when I opened that website,

https://digitaltmuseum.se/011044500662/slot-over-slot-sig-bygger-malning

then the above text is not there, I can't find it anymore. Why, and is there any way I can find the text and the rest of it on this website?

I use Google Chrome.

I am trying to call REST services deployed on Tomcat 8 from Angular 4. Since both these are running on separate domains, CORS issue is expected. So, in the tomcat/conf/web.xml, I have added the below filter
<filter>
  <filter-name>CorsFilter</filter-name>
  <filter-class>org.apache.catalina.filters.CorsFilter</filter-class>
  <init-param>
    <param-name>cors.allowed.origins</param-name>
    <param-value>*</param-value>
  </init-param>
  <init-param>
    <param-name>cors.allowed.methods</param-name>
    <param-value>GET,POST,HEAD,OPTIONS,PUT</param-value>
  </init-param>
  <init-param>
    <param-name>cors.allowed.headers</param-name>
    <param-value>Content-Type,X-Requested-With,accept,Origin,Access-Control-Request-Method,Authorization,Access-Control-Request-Headers</param-value>
  </init-param>
  <init-param>
    <param-name>cors.exposed.headers</param-name>
    <param-value>Access-Control-Allow-Origin,Access-Control-Allow-Credentials</param-value>
  </init-param>
</filter>
<filter-mapping>
  <filter-name>CorsFilter</filter-name>
  <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping> 

Open in new window


This is how I am sending the GET request from Angular
var basicOptions:RequestOptionsArgs = {
  url: 'http://server3:7000/myrest/info',
  method: RequestMethod.Get,
  search: null,
  headers: new Headers(
    {'Authorization': 'Basic AG1hZG1pbjpkZW1vLmRlbW8=' },
    ),
  body: null
};

basicOptions.headers.append('Content-Type', 'application/json');

var reqOptions = new RequestOptions(basicOptions);
var req = new Request(reqOptions);
return this.http.request( req );

Open in new window


Since, I am sending the Authorization header, it is also added in the 'cors.allowed.headers' param in Tomcat.

When I call the REST service from Chrome, it always gives me a 'Invalid CORS request' error (Network tab -> Preview). Below is the error in browser console
XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://server3:7000/myrest/info. Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:4200' is therefore not allowed access. The response had HTTP status code 403.

Is there something else that I need to do to make it work?

Hello all,

I've spent so many hours on this now and can't figure it out.

I've created a really basic proxy.pac file, published as a website in IIS7.

Chrome and Firefox show the contents of the pac file within the browser as plain text, this is good.

But Internet Explorer always tries to download the file when I go to the URL!

It's driving my crazy trying to figure this out!


Only specific changes I've made in IIS7 are...

- MIME type (.pac) = application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig

- HTTP response header (Content-Type) = text/plain


I am an amateur at IIS, been working in IT for 13 years but first time looking at this stuff.

First time I've ever had to post anything technical on a forum because I'm completely stumped.

I'm sure it's going to be one simple setting somewhere that I've missed, But I must have clicked on every Google result ever trying to find the answer!

Screenshots attached.


Please help I will be so grateful  : - )

Thank you,

Lewis.

I'm trying to debug an issue on our website.  My question is if you look at my example (from Chrome ) and the "Cannot read property 'setRequestHeader' of undefined" error, does the order of the output mean that the top most file identified is the culprit for the error? The error links to this line in the file:
jqXHR.setRequestHeader(window.__antiforgery.headerName, window.__antiforgery.token)

Open in new window


Also if anyone has any advice on how to debug this issue, it would be highly appreciated because I have no idea!

Thanks!

I currently login to the time from website using the following script.


browser = webdriver.Chrome('E:/Shared Folders/Users/runnerjp/chromedriver/chromedriver.exe')
browser.get("https://www.timeform.com/horse-racing/account/sign-in?returnUrl=%2Fhorse-racing%2F") 
time.sleep(3)
username = browser.find_element_by_id("EmailAddress")
password = browser.find_element_by_id("Password")
username.send_keys("usr")
password.send_keys("pass")
login_attempt = browser.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@type='submit']")
time.sleep(3)
login_attempt.submit()

Open in new window


it works but I find using Chrome web driver is hammering my CPU. Is there an alternative code I could use that does not mean I need to physically load the page to sign in?

Greetings,
I've fumbled around doing research on this issue, but am no closer to figuring it out.  In short, I am trying to access www.bcid.org from inside their office network and cannot. They are on a domain by the name of bcid.org and connected to a single Windows 2008 R2 server (that I did not set up).  The site can be accessed from outside the network and is hosted externally.

When I browse to the website in a browser, I get the error:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

When I ping www.bcid.org, I get the IP address (64.224.215.186) but the requests time out.  As a test, I've tried changing a workstation's DNS to 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4 but still get the same issue.  I also flushed the DNS with no change.  I tried changing  the local hosts file on this workstation but also didn't see a change after adding a line for 64.224.215.186 www.bcid.org.  I just did an NSlookup from this workstation and got the server as the Google DNS server  and the Non-authoritative answer as:
www.bcid.org.bcid.org
64.224.215.186

I'm at a loss as to where to go from here or what the issue even is.  Thanks!

copy that search into a browser
Google with videos larger than 20 minutes

I am looking for mob (like tony sprano tv show "the spranos" on hbo television) documentary about taxi drivers
Please dont completely edit search to

tony sprano taxi cab

to find tony sprano riding a taxi cab because this is an algorithm question

Tony sprano riding a taxi cab is an example to a correct answer but isnt the only correct answer to the question but please dont edit the answer too much


All the results are video games playing
People filming themselves playing xbox or playstation or nintendo

Seems like all the specific searches are something else.
So this is more of a big data question.

I usually just watch netflix.com because it is easier than something specific.
Most people just watch regular tv because tv is easy to turn on

this question is a puzzle and not looking for a link the meaning of + and - symbols
so if you have a better picture of google custom search terms that is not the answer.
google-puzzle
Note: this question is not homework and is not a puzzle for a job interview -YET.…
