"Customize Google-""Application For Chrome/Iron

by sergieyes / June 23, 2010 3:46 PM PDT

There is an application named Customize Google which started out in Firefox and spread to IE and Opera. Rumor is that it is not any longer developed,and the FF addon is named Optimize Google. Well,I want it for Iron. Can anyone show me how to get/accomplish that? ADVISE.

Not sure I understand

Those words, "Customize Google for Iron", do not mean anything to me.

What is Iron, in this respect?

Hi Mark,no problem! Google made the Chrome Browser,a good engineering job which in effect skinned the Webkit rendering engine. Chrome was Open Source,and Chrome had no privacy. So some snappy and clever lads over in Germany made Chrome private by modifying its open code to make it NOT connected to Google. Private Chrome Browser is named Iron Browser. - Similar

Google makes great apps,but,then,its got to get cash,so it is NOT private for the user.
Here is Customize Google for IE Browser. I want this same sort of application for my Iron Browser (Chrome-Privatized Browser). - Cached - Similar

If you can ADVISE,I am obliged toyou.

Ahh that's great

and very interesting. Thanks for that.

But sadly it's so new, at least to me, that I can't help you. I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere in these forums before.

I'm sure you've already considered this but my first port of call would be the Iron developers themselves. It may be that the Add-on world hasn't caught up with this yet.

Good luck in your search.

Robb: Iron Browser & Customize/Optimize Google

Mark,i appreciate it. Right now,there is an addon for FF named Optimize Google,a variation on that theme, and there is an addon for Opera.Just FYI,in case you use IE, FF,or Opera. Conflicting rumors: (1) not developed;(2) Cust Goo is expanding,into Opera etc.
Is there smoke,maybe fire?I hope so.
I did place a thread on the SRWare site--they are the parents of Iron. FYI,try and track Customize Google on the Google browser,and then you see conflict of interest in blazing neon. Its WW Gazillion to find that addon mentioned in Google Search, Ya gotta use one of the competitors like DogPile or Yahoo,who don't loose cash.
Please post if you run across anything for Iron.
