I know I can use any browser I want, but I like the DOM extension so I try to use the included Chromium. However, Google features keep getting added to it and it makes it harder to keep client data private. The latest "feature" is the "Search with Google Lens" button that appears in the URL. If you accidentally click on it, it tells you it will send a screenshot to Google. It would be great if Burp's chromium was more customized to strip out extras like that. Or if a team can't be dedicated to the browser, maybe partner with a company like Brave or anyone else. Another option could be to make it so the extensions can be installed in other browsers. Thanks.

Hi Unfortunately, we have to patch Chrome in order to enable DOM Invader to work, which means we're not able to make this work with other browsers. We can raise a feature request to disable Lens. Were there any other Chrome-specific features that you would like to be disabled?

That is the only feature at this time. In the future, I will post requests as I learn of them. Thank you.

Thank you for the feature request! We've raised this feature request and added your +1 to it. We will need to further prioritize this work, so we will not be able to provide an ETA for when we can implement this change, but any additional plus one's will be added to this ongoing feature request. If there's anything else we can help with, then please let us know.

I'd like to add my +1 to it. I found this post after wasting a fair amount of time researching how to turn this "feature" off myself, but came up empty.

+++++ please disable google lens, thanks. It's really annoying when editing urls.
