comment Execute browser as root
@schaiba: I couldn't find a suitable link, but when trying to run it as normal user I get an error message, saying that it has no access to hosts. I tested in on several systems (Windows 7,8,10) and now on Ubuntu.

comment Execute browser as root
@schaiba: It doesn't explicitly ask to run my browser as root, but it needs full acces to hosts and, afaik, it's the only way to gain those rights.
