    I get that on a lot of sites now. Microsoft Edge seems to flag any website with older security protocols as unsafe.

    As of yet I haven't gotten it on any other sites. I use Google Chrome.

    I didn’t know it was still around. I remember connecting to it at 300 baud rate

    I despise Google and won't use any of their products, except YouTube, 'cause I have to. There is no alternative to YouTube.

    To function properly, especially on some browsers, for your protection, security sockets need to be current and updated. If you look at the bottom of HC's site, you will see that it expired in 2019. Therefore it's considered unsafe because its security socket has not been renewed. If my browser can't confirm security - I don't go there.

    The security certificate on that site expired 2 days ago. That's why your browser is whining about it.

    Yeah, this just happened over the weekend. Is this something that HC has to fix, or what? That site is always messing up!

    Yeah, they need to pull their finger out and update their security certification. Or rather, their web hosting provider needs to.

    That forum has been dying a slow death since they "upgraded" it years ago, destroying it in the process with extended periods of the site being down. They lost almost all all their subscribers and users. It is now just a hopeless case of people resurrecting 7 and 8 year old posts. It's pretty sad as it was once an interesting group over there.

    It's them. They are in charge of this. The hosting provider has no responsibility to do this unless the customer has set things to 'autorenew' to pay for the cert. In any case, it's up to Harmony Central to make it happen.

    At the risk of derailing the thread, I get along fine with Firefox. There's a lot of control over what gets cached, ad blocking, etc. Google is the default search engine but I'm sure there's a workaround for that.

    I've been a Firefox user for quite a while.

    Click Open Menu in the upper right corner, Options, Search, Default Search Engine, and select DuckDuckGo for a good search engine that doesn't track your searches.

    Opera is my 'everyday' web browser, but I have Firefox installed as a backup - for the reasons mentioned.
