Re: Google Sync not working

I am currently logged in with 91.0.4435.0 so it was working before, it won't allow login on my other computer.

It is weird that v74 will still login, maybe they failed to block all versions entirely, but sooner or later they will destroy sync.

Re: Chromium Losing Google Private API Support

Because that is a different repo, to modify gamma you need to work on third party/skia and that is a different repo, it is a pain to have different repos and a diff on main repo won't include childs, so I have to patch skia manually everytime.

Re: Source code patch for enabling contrast text on Win XP?

Hello, to make the text look better you just need to change gamma parameter on skia, this is for version 80+

Depending on the version I had to do different tricks, for older versions you need to enable GDI because you won't find skia gamma, I don't remember how to enable GDI on older builds.
