Has anyrat ever managed to get Rapport to work with Chrome?
Santander keep popping up to tell me to download it. I have
downloaded it. Many times. Many, many times. It is enabled in
Chrome and shows as a grey icon. When I click on that I get a little
White box appear with 2 grey tabs top left which say "protect site!"
and "console". Clicking either of them does nothing.
It is not just Santander that tries to get us to download Rapport. I
have been resisting two or three different banks' suggestions to do
this for some years now. When they started doing this I heard that
having it slowed things down dramatically, hence my resistance.
This doesn't help you in the least if you really want to try it, but if
you can get rid of it and carry on without, I don't think that it will
do any harm, other than still having to dismiss these pop-ups.
I have a little utility called "ClickOff"; the original
site http://www.johanneshuebner.com/en/clickoff.shtml seems to have
gone, but I'm sure you can find it on other repositories. (Please look
first, but if anyone really can't find it and wants it, I'll send the
installer.) It just sits there, and when any window you've programmed it
about pops up, it presses the button you've told it about (such as "OK"
or "not now"), or closes the window, or whatever is necessary. It worked
on XP and seems to be working on 7. ("Telling it about" a new popup
window is simple, too.)
If your popups are within a browser, rather than actual windows,
ClickOff I think won't dismiss them - but AdBlockPlus's element
filtering facility may well be able to block them; that is also easy to
use: from ABP's menu select "Select element to hide", then just click on
the offending bit, and on Add filter rule.

it is easy to make up a lie, but it can take much more time and effort to
convincingly refute it. - Patrick Cockburn, i, 2016-9-24
