Google Now Bans Some Linux Web Browsers From Their Services

Accepted submission by mendax at 2019-12-13 23:34:17 from the what's-wrong-with-my-browser dept.

BleepingComputer recently published an article which says: []

Google is now banning the popular Linux browsers named Konqueror, Falkon, and Qutebrowser from logging into Google services because they may not be secure. [...]

In tests conducted by BleepingComputer, we can confirm that we were unable to log in with Konqueror or Falkon on multiple machines. When attempting to do so, we were told to try a different browser as Konqueror or Falkon may not be secure. [...]

BleepingComputer has contacted Google to ask why these browsers are blocked but have not received a response as of yet.

Google does have discriminating tastes, does it not?
