GREATGOLD – We recently received notification that some people trying to hear the GreatGold.fm Internet Radio stream at the TuneIn.com website when visiting the site from computers using the Chrome browser, may not be able to do so. It seems from time to time, the Chrome browser people tend to change the inner coding of the browser, which at times creates difficulties in listeners trying to hear their favorite streaming radio stations. This seems to be one of those times, but there are other browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, that are capable of bringing in GreatGold.fm just fine.
We have found the Edge browser to be far superior to the older Microsoft browsers from years ago. Edge is much faster than the Microsoft browser used to be, likely due to the competition for speed that the Chrome browser brought about after Chrome’s initial introduction into the browser market. We have been using Edge almost exclusively since several months ago when a trial run of the new Edge resulted in our finding that Edge is just as good as Chrome these days, plus, all streaming radio stations that don’t work in the current version of Chrome DO work in the Edge browser.
We have noticed there are difficulties hearing GreatGold on some computers using Chrome browsers when visiting other internet radio directories online, such as internet-radio.com, and others, as well. Those feeds DO work perfectly fine when visiting those websites using the Edge browser, instead.
The problem seems to NOT be an issue when trying to hear music played on GreatGold.fm Internet Radio using the official TuneIn App, OnlineRadioBox App, or NoBex App in Mobile Phones and other devices. Our research indicates, at this writing, it’s only a problem if you go to the website and try to listen using a Chrome browser, and usually is not a problem if you listen using the applicable App.
Remember, when going to the internet station directories, such as the one at the TuneIn.com website, to find the GreatGold stream, you may have to either search for “greatgold” or “greatgold.fm”, depending on how their inner search mechanism is programmed. So if our station does not come up with “greatgold”, try again with “greatgold.fm”. The same is true when trying to find our station in an App. After you find us, we suggest you Favorite GreatGold to return easily to hear and enjoy the GreatGold Mix of Classic Rock, Pop Oldies, plus Newbees and Wannabees.
HOWEVER, our experience shows that, at this writing, it doesn’t matter which browser you use, Edge or Chrome, when visiting our home website at http://greatgold.fm to listen in our player on the website. Our website player at GreatGold.fm, as well as the players at the McStreamy.com RadioGude, and the Clik2Go.com NetRadio player and WinAmp links work whether you use the Edge or Chrome browser in your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
