A Shariah compliant browser VS Anonymous Browsing
So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it 99:7 Al Quran
Now, a Shariah-compliant web browser
KUALA LUMPUR, May 20 — Muslims anxious to safeguard their faith online now have the option of a “Shariah-compliant” web browser that aims to steer them away from the sins and temptations of the Internet.
Dubbed the “Salam Browser”, the free-to-download programme claims to filter out websites with content incompatible with the Muslim religion.
According to SBRO Online Security Solutions, the local firm offering the browser, it “enables web browsing that helps maintain purity of your heart and benefits your values.”
“Avoid Haram. Salam alerts on >1.4m webpages with pornography, gambling, offense to religion and other harmful content,” the firm said on its webpage.
Aside from displaying a warning when arriving at any offensive website, the browser also blocks out adult content and violent images and videos.
More conventionally, Salam Browser also filters spam and obnoxious online advertisements.
According to SBRO, the browser also speeds up the downloading of videos and music from YouTube and cuts page load times with a data compression function, although these are features included in the Chromium project that the browser is built on.
Chromium is the open-source version of Google’s proprietary Chrome browser.
The browser “adhering to Islamic adab” is currently in beta release, while its functions are also available as standalone extensions from Chrome Web Store.
The browser extensions are rated 4.47 out of five stars by some 685 reviewers and have over 250,000 users so far, based on statistics from the Chrome Web Store.
The browser is available for download here.
We have now grown into the golden age of the internet. We have a multitude of choice. Google Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Opera. Take that people.
Now we have Salam.
The guy look as if he was suspiciously thinking that you did something weird.
It is developed by, SBRO Online Security Solutions.
You see, I think this is a very important step to develop a safe environment while browsing. Of course you might argue that Salam is based on Chrome’s extension. But whatever it is I would like to point out that you now have the option to browse with the end in mind.
One more thing I would like to point out, the Salam Browser extension is another way to promote Islam.
I just would to point that, this browser is developed by a team of security people.
You see the internet is full of stuff. Full of good stuff and of course the not good stuff. Dichotomy of stuff.
And then you have, the public web and the deep web.
See this pic below.
An analogy of an iceberg used by Denis Shestakov represents the division between surface web and deep web respectively:
It is impossible to measure, and harsh to put estimates on, the size of the deep web because the majority of the information is hidden or locked inside databases. Early estimates suggested that the deep web is 400 to 550 times larger than the surface web. However, since more information and sites are always being added, it can be assumed that the deep web is growing exponentially at a rate that cannot be quantified.
Estimates based on extrapolations from a study done at University of California, Berkeley in 2001 speculate that the deep web consists of about 7.5 petabytes. More accurate estimates are available for the number of resources in the deep web: research of He et al. detected around 300,000 deep web sites in the entire web in 2004, and, according to Shestakov, around 14,000 deep web sites existed in the Russian part of the Web in 2006.
The thing is is you want to go deep, you will need a special way. An animosity. Like Edward Snowden kinda stuff.
Now you have the DARKNET.
Wikipedia define it as ; A darknet (or dark net) is an overlay network that can only be accessed with specific software, configurations, or authorization, often using non-standard communications protocols and ports.
Something like Torrent.
If you read Wikipedia,
Darknets in general may be used for various reasons, such as:
- To better protect the privacy rights of citizens from targeted and mass surveillance
- Protecting dissidents from political reprisal
- Whistleblowing and news leaks
- Computer crime (cracking, file corruption malware etc.)
- Sale of restricted goods on darknet markets
- File sharing (videography, photography files, legal documents or software etc.)
Some subculture genre which I am not going to emphasize, because I am promoting a clean and healthy browsing stuffs.
It is damn scary this stuff. It is like non conforming to the current mainstream culture.
True enough, I guess Malaysia being Malaysia, we need to regulate all these subculture genre.
- TOR https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tor_(anonymity_network)
The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) has called Tor “the king of high-secure, low-latency Internet anonymity”.
and BusinessWeek magazine has described it as “perhaps the most effective means of defeating the online surveillance efforts of intelligence agencies around the world”.
Other media have described Tor as “a sophisticated privacy tool, easy to use, and “so secure that even the world’s most sophisticated electronic spies haven’t figured out how to crack it.
With the arrest of that Paedophile- I wont mention his name because I dont want to smear my blog – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/afp/article-3623122/Malaysia-presses-British-police-info-UK-paedophile.html, most probably he kept in communications at the darknet of stuffs.
So take you pick.
So Browse with the end in mind.
Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri 1437 29 Ramadan 1437.
