Google to cut off other Chromium-based browsers from access to services such as Sync

Google plans to revoke others’ Chromium-based browsers’ access to a long list of APIs that power such popular services as bookmark and settings synchronization.

“We discovered that some third-party Chromium-based browsers were able to integrate Google features, such as Chrome Sync and Click to Call, that are only intended for Google’s use,” Jochen Eisinger, Chrome engineering director, wrote in a Jan. 15 post to a company blog.

Access to what Eisinger labeled “our private Chrome APIs” will be blocked starting March 15.

Although Eisinger mentioned only two APIs by name — Google Sync and Click to Call — as effected by the new rule, a link he offered led to a page that lists 20 APIs, including those for calling on services like Google Translate and Safe Browsing. The latter warns users when they try to steer to potentially dangerous websites.

Some or all of those APIs may also be out of bounds come the middle of March.

“Many of the Google APIs used by Chromium code are specific to Google Chrome and not intended for use in derived products,” that page stated.

  3. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog
    and I am impressed! Very useful info particularly the last
    part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was
    looking for this certain information for a very long time.
    Thank you and good luck.

  4. Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this take a massive amount work?
    I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming but I was
    hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just wanted to ask.
    Thanks!

  5. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone
    else experiencing problems with your website. It seems like some of the written text in your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Many thanks

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
    I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of
    any please share. Kudos! free dating sites

  7. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different page and thought I should check things out.
    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to checking out your web page yet again.

  8. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  9. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.
