Have you ever faced Google Chrome downloading proxy script problem? A few days back Chrome browser (Version 62.0.3202.94) started showing this issue in my Windows 10 machine when I tried to open a page in Incognito mode. If you don’t know what the incognito mode is, then it is the private browsing mode to protect your browser’s history and cookies. I could access all web pages in the normal mode, but when it came to Incognito, it starts loading and loading.
There is no doubt that, Google Chrome is the most popular web browser available for the computer. But, recently Firefox has launched it’s brand new web browser named as Firefox Quantum. I am using it from the day of release, and I can say it’s clean, lightweight and faster than Chrome. I am a blogger and use the private browsing to search queries on Google. Because, in normal mode, Google shows the websites in the search result which I visit frequently. So, private browsing is necessary for me.
