Google apparently blocked users of small browsers like Konqueror, Qutebrowser or Falkon from loggining into their account, because of "security" concerns. Well played, Google! I hope you will be happy if a few users will switch to your data crawling machine.

    @shoop That doesn't mean a technology giant should have the audacity to exclude those people from using their account just because they use the "wrong" browser.

    @PrivateGER But isn't that the case with old IE browsers as well ?

    @alexbrooklyn IE is a different case because it is outdated and supports basically nothing.

    Security in WWW, is that even possible?

    Maybe they are concerned about your security because logging in you would lose your privacy. With chrome it's already lost.

    Just asking: Did they generally do it, or only disallowed specific (outdated?) WebKit versions? The former is idiotic (as they still allow logging in with Safari), the latter is a good idea.

    Everyone hates IE6.
    I feel that chrome IS a new IE
    Too bad there is not really another option :( Even EDGE runs on chromium now. (Using it !)
    FireFox dropped the ball like 3-4 years ago.
    Give me my Netscape 7 !

    @NoToJavaScript Give ffox another shot, it improved vastly in every way since 3 years ago.
