Google Chrome: SSL connection error

How To Get Rid Of Your Connection Is Not Private Error In Google Chrome

As you known, most websites switched to use HTTPS, an encryption information with SSL certificates, to make users’ information and data to be more safe than ever. Instead of sending directly from the browser to the server, all the collected information will automatically encrypted and then transmitted. Those data could be personal information, email, username, password, or even financial details.

That is the primary reason why most websites have switched to HTTPS. Besides, Google also recommened to use HTTPS as it will help you improve the rank of websites in some aspects.

Last year, Google started to warn users about insecure connection when loading a website with bad or self-signed SSL certificates. That said, these types of SSL certificates will lead to an annoying errors, called Your connection is not private in Chrome. Basically, this error will not damage your computer, but will hurt your user experience. The result of getting this error is that you will not be able to access the requested website properly.

How To Get Rid Of Your Connection Is Not Private Error In Google Chrome

The simplest method to get rid of the “Your connection is not private” error in Google Chrome is to bypass it. There would be a link that you can click whenever you confront this type of error on your Google Chrome. All you need to do is to click on it and go to the website immediately.

However, this method will harm to user experience somehow as users might feel irritating. There’s nothing fun or good when you always need to click on a link to access your favorite websites every time you need.

Fortunately, this SSL warning error sometimes can be caused by invalid cookies as well. Before reinstall your Google Chrome browser, why don’t you try to clean up all cookies and cached files? There’s nothing to lose as anyway, you will try to reinstall the Chrome browser, right?

Besides, I would recommend focusing on the date and time of your computer. This could be the most common problem that lead to “Your connection is not private” error on your Chrome browser. Technically, before encrypting users’ information and data, SSL certificate needs to verify the date and time between your computer and the server in order to start the encrypt process. If the time doesn’t match, the process can’t be started and then, you see this annoying error message.

Google Chrome boosts 3D performance

Google Chrome Quietly Got The Big 3D Graphics Boost

Have you upgraded to the latest version of Google Chrome yet? Did you notice a big boost for 3D web graphics when using the Chrome browser?

You might have known, but with the recent update, the Chrome browser quietly received the big boost for 3D because it now supports WebGL 2.0.

Combined with the new WebAssembly, this new version of WebGL will help to increase the performance of texture and visual effects. Therefore, the performance for games will be better in the next time, especially the web-based application.

According to the information that we have received, WebAssembly is created to replace Javascript, and so all the new web-based applications will be faster and have the better performance.

This technology isn’t new for Mozilla Firefox or Opera as they already have supported WebGL 2.0 for a while. But Google Chrome takes more than 50% of web browser market share, so they need to make changes carefully to make sure there’s no issue at all.

At this moment, the WebGL 2.0 is only available for the desktop version of Google Chrome browser. If you are expecting this technology on your mobile, then it will be coming soon.

Follow the way that Firefox started last month; Google has recently released the new version of Google Chrome browser, the version #57. This new update will support WebAssembly, a portable format that assists to speed up web-based applications in order to replace Javascript somehow.

According to the information that we have learned, the WebAssembly format will help to create web apps quicker, run faster and use little of codes. It also means developers will take less time to write apps than before, more efficient, of course.

If you have tried beta versions of Google Chrome before, then you might already know about this new feature in the past few months. After Mozilla released the Firefox #52, Google also unleashes Chrome #57 to consumers that has the same function.

If you want to try out this new feature in Google Chrome, or just want to know the ability of WebAssembly and what it can be used for, upgrade to the latest version of Google Chrome and try this demo. You may feel excited about what this new format can do within the browser.

However, make sure you already upgraded your browser to the #57 version in order to use WebAssembly format. Otherwise, your Chrome browser will inevitably crash or may show some kind of errors.

Don’t know how to update your Chrome browser? Click on the menu and access Help -> About Google Chrome, and it will automatically check for updates. Let it run for a while and then you only need to relaunch your Chrome browser.

That’s it!

Alongside the WebAssembly format, Google Chrome version #57 also supports CSS Grid Layout. It helps designers or developers to create two-dimensional web layouts using the grids. Furthermore, if you are using Google Chrome for Android, we would recommend taking this update because there are some bugs need to be fixed, as well as enhance the stability of the browser.
