GWT‘s Same Origin Policy (SOP) problem is common especially for newbies. This happens if your GWT front end client accesses a remote service that is hosted in the same local domain in your PC but having a different port.

Browsers still considers this a violation of the SOP policy. I have read that Internet Explorer has a lax web security policy so you may be able to use that without encountering this restriction. However, Internet Explorer sucks and Firefox is just too damn heavy to load even with just one tab.

So I am left with Google Chrome. You can run Google Chrome with web security disabled but I would advise you to create it as a shortcut in Windows and create an alias in Mac OS. Here is how I did them.


  1. right click anywhere on your desktop, choose New > Shortcut
  2. then type this in the text field C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –allow-file-access-from-files –disable-web-security
  3. click OK


  1. open Terminal
  2. edit your .profile file
  3. add this to the end of the file alias chromegwt=’/Applications/Google\\ Chrome –disable-web-security’
  4. save file
  5. close Terminal window or open a new Terminal window tab then type chromegwt and you should then see Google Chrome launch without web security.

Note: you can rename it any name you want. I just used chromegwt so I would know that this Chrome is used only for GWT purposes.

Remember not to use this same browser when browsing the web as it can lead to disastrous results.

One of the well known features in a working environment is its ability to be able to use themes. However, the most common problem is it is hard to make on. You would have to be familiar with the inner workings of that environment.

Take for example a web browser. Whether it is Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome, it is not easy to make a theme unless you know how it works beneath it all. This is the first time though, that I came across a service that lets you design and build themes for your web browser easily.

Brand Thunder has a browser theme building portal where you can Create your own browser theme for your favorite browsers with some clicks and drags. You do not have to know the inner code that makes it work with the browser. Everything is presented to you visually and it handles the rest in creating your theme.

And I am saying “easy” because I tried it myself. If you do not like any of the pre-defined images supplied there, you can easily upload one of your own. That is how flexible it is. I am not that much of a tech junkie but since I was able to make one without any bottlenecks, I am sure that you can easily make one too.

Again?! A recently discovered flaw in Internet Explorer could allow criminals to collect passwords and banking information. Microsoft is warning Windows users to be aware of the problem, with a manual work-around available, but there is no downloadable software fix available yet.

Users of Windows versions from XP to Windows 7 are at risk, Microsoft says.

Chester Wisniewski, of Sophos security software, noted on the company’s blog that there is “proof of concept code in the wild and it seems to be only a matter of time before we see criminals trying to exploit this flaw”.

If you are unsure of what to do, the best thing may be to switch to another Web browser for now, such as Firefox or Chrome. Then again … are there still that many who uses IE nowadays?
