# Hiding the "LipSurf started debugging this browser" Message

Chrome shows "'LipSurf - Voice Control for the Web' started debugging this browser" in a message bar because LipSurf needs to emulate the keyboard and mouse in some cases. You can configure Chrome to hide the bar if it bothers you:

# Windows

Windows turn off debugger warning
  1. Right click the icon from where you launch Chrome - whether it be the task bar, Desktop, or the programs menu (you will need to follow these instructions for each shortcut you use).

  2. Click properties

  3. Add --silent-debugger-extension-api after .../chrome.exe" (Make sure it's after the closing quote)

  4. Repeat for other Chrome shortcuts you use.

  5. Exit Chrome and launch it from one of the launchers you changed.

# Mac

  1. Create an Applescript with the following contents:
do shell script "open -b com.google.Chrome --args --silent-debugger-extension-api"
  1. Save it as an application.

  2. Exit and relaunch Chrome.

# Linux (Ubuntu)

  1. Open a terminal and copy the google-chrome.desktop file to your $XDG_DATA_HOME folder:

    cp /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop ~/.local/share/applications

  2. You need to modify the new google-chrome.desktop file, not the one located in /usr/share/applications/ as that one will be overwritten by package upgrades or release updates.

Edit all Exec= commands to append the --silent-debugger-extension-api option.


You may have to unlock the icon from the launcher and lock it again to select the right .desktop file tough.
