OMG! Google Will Lock Down Chrome On Windows

We all know very well that the tech giant Google’s well-known Chrome browser is the most widely used browser on all operating systems, hence, Chrome browser has to interact with other existing software, due to which it faces serious problems in performance. Hence, the tech giant Google has now decided to lock down Chrome on Windows.

OMG! Google Will Lock Down Chrome On Windows


As the most widely used browser on all operating systems, the tech giant Google’s Chrome browser has to interact with other existing software and expect them to be tailored to users’ needs.

This often brings serious performance issues and even Chrome’s own flaws. Hence, the tech giant Google now wants to stop this behaviour and will block these applications in the tech giant Microsoft’s well-known Windows operating system.

According to the tech giant Google’s data, 2 out of 3 Chrome users in Windows have installed applications that interact with this browser. They are, for the most part, antivirus or accessibility applications. This interaction is in most cases code injection into Chrome’s own processes, which causes it to crash and have problems.

To stop this behaviour, the tech giant Google’s well-known browser, Chrome in Windows will have different behaviour and prevent this software from injecting code, thus protecting itself from these problems and giving a much better experience of use to its users.

The tech giant Google wants to make this change in a phased way, to give programmers time to adjust. In April 2018, Chrome 66 will start alerting users to these situations where Chrome flaws are associated with third-party software.

Later, in July 2018 and Chrome 68, Chrome will block the code injection of those applications. If this prevents Chrome from being released the code will be accepted, but with an alert for the user.

Lastly, and in January 2019 with Chrome 72, Google’s browser will simply stop allowing code to be injected, regardless of the outcome of that in the browser and more applications.

The exceptions that Chrome will allow

As not all software can be deleted, the tech giant Google has decided to allow some exceptions to the software that will be blocked. According to the tech giant Google, software that is signed by the tech giant Microsoft, accessibility software or IME software will not be affected.

The tech giant Google also recommends developers to use test versions of Chrome to validate the interaction of their applications.

This change will bring back to Chrome measures that protect it from external software and that sometimes causes serious problems to this browser. It is the tech giant Google’s way of giving the necessary immunity to its browser without taking any defensive measures.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What is ASP.NET? and it's ARCHITECTURE

What is ASP.Net?ASP.Net is a web development platform provided by Microsoft. It is used for creating web-based applications. ASP.Net was first released in the year 2002.
The first version of ASP.Net deployed was 1.0. The most recent version of ASP.Net is version 4.6. ASP.Net is designed to work with the HTTP protocol. This is the standard protocol used across all web applications.

ASP.Net applications can also be written in a variety of .Net languages. These include C#, VB.Net, and J#. In this chapter, you will see some basic fundamental of the .Net framework.

The full form of ASP is Active Server Pages, and .NET is Network Enabled Technologies.
ASP.NET Architecture and its Components ASP.Net is a framework which is used to develop a Web-based application. The basic architecture of the ASP.Net framework is as shown below.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
