So I've installed Ubuntu on my media center computer to replace aging Windows 7. I'm experiencing why people aren't going to adopt Linux in the mainstream. Excessive security with no reasonable workarounds. Yes, I know Chrome is stupid with how it stores passwords. I don't want a keyring where I have to enter a password every time I want to use Chrome. I'm tired of trying command line fixes and editing config files. Just have an option to ignore the security warning and just open it.

How did you survive Windows Vista then? 😁

@fredl99 I skipped Vista. You gotta follow the every other rule for Microsoft products.

Ah, ok.
I escaped too soon to learn about that. :)

@Danbert8 Pretty sure Firefox does not have that behavior. Don't blame Linux for crummy proprietary software 😋
