Better yet, bester could post in a linux forum that he likes outdated browsers, then the IP could be backtraced. :roll:

Got my location ... down to a radius encompassing a 10 million population. IP was right, and time (UK). Many other things unseen as Javascript disabled (noscript). Debian running firefox-esr reported as
Your User Agent is:
Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.1.1; Nexus 4 Build/LMY48T) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/40.0.2214.89 Mobile Safari/537.36

i.e. nothing like the actual due to spoofing my useragent to a Android Chrome lookalike.

With all comments said, I now feel safer using the oudated browser,
i see there is nothing to be afraid, in the same way i will keep letting the door of my apartment unlocked. It just common sense, at least my common sense, that perhaps is different to yours.

See my neightbour, he locks door even when he arrives at home and he's inside (i dont get it, perhaps he thinks badly of me :shock: ). Its an apartment, its second floor, its a small flat , we all know each other, there're two main doors before coming inside the flat, so its more or less the same than with my browser.

Hey, what's your apartment number? And I have sent you a package with an amazing surprise inside, but you need to pick it up tomorrow across town at exactly 1:30 PM. :) :evil: :) :evil:

A friendly suggestion: Provide a copy of this article and this article to your neigbour(s)/neigbourhood and kindly offer to share your Internet connection. You do use a Wi-Fi router - preferably an outdated one, don't you? :mrgreen:

This is a warning to anyone who believes that this user posts with the intention of actually listening.
