Google doesn’t want people to know about better software

Filed under

OSS

Google has decided, today, that RadicalBreeze.com contains malware. And will harm your computer.

And they display a gigantic red page stating that you, along with your first born, will be slaughtered in the night – to any man, woman or child who visits this website with Chrome or via a Google website.

The only thing available from RadicalBreeze.com is Illumination Software Creator.

Which is, most certainly, not malware.

[Unless you modify the word "malware" to mean "something significantly more advanced than a project that Google started but then gave up on because it was too hard".]

Rest here
