Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery.
It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.
Websites have increasingly begun to rely much more on large third-parties for content delivery. Canceling requests for ads or trackers is usually without issue, however blocking actual content, not unexpectedly, breaks pages. The aim of this add-on is to cut out the middleman by providing lightning speed delivery of local (bundled) files to improve online privacy.
• Protects privacy by evading large delivery networks that claim to offer free services.
• Complements regular blockers such as uBlock Origin (recommended), Adblock Plus, et al.
• Works directly out of the box; absolutely no prior configuration required.
Note: Decentraleyes is no silver bullet, but it does prevent a lot of websites from making you send these kinds of requests. Ultimately, you can make Decentraleyes block requests for any missing CDN resources, too.
I installed the first version years ago whilst a Beta-Tester on Firefox. Actually, it was the first add-on/extension I installed, both mobile and tablets, plus Macs, and it impressed me so much back then, I couldn’t say enough positive comments and keep-up with the updates. The Dev Team truly give-a-toss and continue to deliver an incredible tool keeping my devices (as well as those on my Team) safe! It’s the first, and one on a very short list, of extensions we require Data-Teams to install, with zero complaints throughout the numerous Election Cycles. Thank you for improving an already kick-arse product! Cheers!
Seems to work overall, but breaks Chrome Gogglestore right here by sticking on redirect to googleads.g.doubleclick.net/ads/preferences/cu/optout?continue=aHR0cHM6Ly9jb25zZW50Lmdvb2dsZS5jb20vYWQ_Y29udGludWU9aHR0cHM6Ly9jaHJvbWUuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS93ZWJzdG9yZS9kZXRhaWwvbnBlaWNwZGJrYWttZWhhaGplZW9oZmRobmxwZGtsaWEmZ2w9TFUmaGw9ZW4tVVMmeD05JnBjPWN3cyZzcmM9MQ%3D%3D®ion=LU&xtoken=ADw3F8jpV_cJRumfzYan1_sx0_ZKXQGwRw:1647283228414&ac_tld=com
The last update seems to be buggy. When I try to play some videos on youtube the website goes crazy.
