A NEW internet browser automatically prevents users doing stupid things due to alcohol.
Google Sober is designed to block drink-related online mishaps ranging from extravagant purchases to leaving creepy flirtatious messages on Facebook.
Programmer Stephen Malley said: “I got the idea after a pair of £800 rollerblades and a rare lizard in a tank mysteriously arrived on my doorstep.
“I had no recollection of ordering this shit and knew it must be the spoils of a post-pub Ebay session.
”Our software detects drunken behaviour and takes preventative action, creating a fake, offline version of any page so that the user can harmlessly make idiotic purchases.
”The next morning, the panicked individual receives a message saying: ‘It’s fine. Drink some water and go back to bed.’”
Beta tester Tom Logan said: ”Last night I sent an email to my ex-girlfriend explaining how much I loved her, but it came out a bit pornographic and threatening, and for some reason I copied it to my entire contacts list.
“Then, spiralling into despair, I booked an escort called Katya and posted jokes on forums that seemed edgy at the time but are in fact racist.
”Fortunately Google Sober blocked it, so I was delighted when I realised the only bad thing I did last night was shitting the bed.”
