New in SRWare Iron 13.0.800.1 (September 1st, 2011)

  • Patches the last (security-)bugs.
  • Additionally we have integrated a new feature: pricacy.ini (BETA). In the wake of new features such as standard activated WebGL it has become necessary to update things like the GPU-Black list from time to time automatically, as incompatible combinations of GPU + OS + driver can cause instability and (in very rare cases) system crashes. But beside that professionals who "know what they are doing" don't want this components even if there are not transporting any private data. With the privacy.ini feature it is now possible to disable these components (at your own risk). How does it work? Just download the attached privacy.ini, unzip into the Iron-directory and (re)start the browser. Attention: While pricacy.ini is active, (at the moment) no extensions can be installed from the Google page.
