As most of you are well aware, on the 1st of April 2011 BakaBT decided to pilot a new initiative to ensure the safety and comfort of the users of the site whilst browsing.
The initiative was originally lead by The Chan Legion to try to atone for their sins in being evil gits, wanting to help out and finally achieve something worthwhile for the general masses.
Forewarning, there IS some strong language after the jump.
The plan was to have every BBT community member to switch over to the amazing, highly endorsed browser of Chrome. (No, we didn’t get free Google stuff for this.) We really wanted this to work as we know of many major bugs on all other browsers. Harmful viruses and trojans which can come from the internet though those suspicious browsers.
Yes yes, I know that you thought this -was- an April Fools jest at your expense but I assure you it’s not. This was in discussion since mid last year. Originally brought to the table by non other than the staff “stick in the mud” Blubart. You all know he has NO sense of humour. It was inspired by Jarudin as we believe him to be in a relationship with a Google HP person.
Each staff member submitted a careful analysis of the pros and cons of this event taking place and we eventually decided that we should go ahead with it.
I’m personally still not too sure on what caused this project to go astray as it would have been beneficial to all. Was it the date it was released, or the idea itself?
However here are some of the more memorable feedback our initiative transpired:
Whitelist FF 3.6, please…
(I keep getting the “The last posting from your IP was less than 30 seconds ago” message… )
Woah woah woah, protect users by using chrome? You mean, GOOGLE chrome? Hmm, from what i remember google loves to store people’s personal information in their servers… Well anyways, i would like to ask that opera be whitelisted.
this must be the most retarded shit i have ever read in my life.
forcing people to use a different browser?
YOU NEVER STOP ME FROM USING FIREFOX, google chrome? safe? you must be joking lol.
i still dont trust chrome its the next skynet
I HATE CHROME. -_-
Now I have to uninstall this shit from my pc. If I got a virus I blame YOU mods!! -_-
I’M USING FIREFOX RIGHT NOW HAHAHAHA. SO EASY TO BYPASS!
Good thing it’s a joke or I wouldn’t be able to download here anymore. Companies that try to force me to use a particular software or service don’t work well with me.
They are pushing their preference of using Chrome only.
Fuck you guys!
To the admins of this site, you cannot detect the browser other than the UserAgent and these can be faked easily.
WTF WTF this is bullshit sorry guys i love this site but when a person, company or site try to impose such rules it is time to go looking for a better site!
If it proves not to be an April Fools joke, I will simply drop my account like liquid lead. Chrome is a piece of garbage, and so full of security holes it makes Microcraps Exploder look safe.
That’s obviously bullshit. But speaking with Jaru the other day, he did mention a merger with dattebayo a viable option.
I’M NOT GOING TO CHANGE MY BROWSER, ‘CUZ CHROME IS CRAP
EDIT: HEHE! I’m using firefox and I’m viewing the home page!!!
Nooo , what to do i use FireFox , Chrome i hate that browser.
Shouldn’t it be up to me to decide whether i want to protect my data or not?! You’re doing something quite unnecessary in my opinion.Advising users to use certain browsers is ok but enforcing their usage is not.
THAT IS WHY I AM GOING TO GO OUT AND modify Opera to get around that block right now.
Take your faggot antics over to 4chan and stay there.
Wow, yet another completely ridiculous and unnecessary move on BBT’s part.
Fuck chrome, am off to a real tracker like AniRena…so long suckers!
I think you’re being unreasonable.. Your’re blacklisting the two most popular browsers at the present date.
The dumbest thing BakaBT has ever done.
This seems awesome and stupid at the same time.
Anything by google is pretty crap, they destroyed youtube aswell.
Don’t force someone to something they don’t want.
Mmmmhmmmm… and I hear you are also switching the only Whitelisted download client to Kazaa Media Desktop in the near future too, as it is the most secure around.[*]
