IDN Safe is pointless now. Mozilla baked the option to show IDN punycode into Firefox via its config options:IDN Safe (blocks internationalized domain names to prevent visiting probable fake sites)
But it's not as effective as the IDN Safe extension and that's why I have not enabled itIDN Safe is pointless now. Mozilla baked the option to show IDN punycode into Firefox via its config options:
Enable or Disable IDN Punycode in Firefox Address Bar in Windows
Canvas Defender is great but it exposes its real fingerprint. For FF, CanvasBlocker not only fake its own fingerprint but hides its real fingerprint as well.FF addons:
uBlock origin (tweaked) (an efficient blocker. Easy on CPU and memory. blocking of ads, trackers, beacons etc.
Canvas Defender (Instead of blocking JS-API, Canvas Defender creates a unique and persistent noise that hides your real canvas fingerprint)
Decentraleyes (Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery.)
HTTPS Everywhere (Encrypt the Web! Automatically use HTTPS security on many sites.)
IDN Safe (which blocks internationalized domain names to prevent you from visiting probable fake sites.)
Nano Defender (An anti-adblock defuser for Nano Adblocker and uBlock Origin)
Netcraft Extension (Comprehensive site information and phishing protection when browsing the web)
Privacy Badger (Privacy Badger protects you from trackers as you surf the web!)
VTZilla (Avoid infections and other unwanted outcomes when you receive a suspicious file or link by checking the file or link with VirusTotal’s free and easy service.)
I'm using Chrome and Ungoogled Chromium. IDN Safe is not required for they block punycode effectively. You can test the demos without IDN Safe below. Blocking of punycode(unicode domains) is more effective in Chrome/Ungoogled Chromium than in FF and that's why FF needs the IDN Safe extension.Not for me, I use Chromium based browser and it still shows IDN, the real name can be seen only by painstakingly looking at the certificate.
Uhh, makes me want to install yandex back. I somehow like yandex search over google. Yandex is bringing some uber alternative to finland and finnish newspapers are like '' yandex is stealing your data/info anything, be carefull''True, but IDN Safe blocks those sites automatically, even iframes/ADs. I do not always look at URL, but default deny is hard to overlook.
That's pretty much where I'm at:...After all im thinking adblocker is the tool of privacy/security you only need. The more extensions you have, more visible you are
I guess nano adblocker + defender is the must, firefox is slacking on that side..and somewhat i end up installing tons of extensions for firefox wich is already heavier than chromium... so firefox is turn offThat's pretty much where I'm at:
Edge - Nano Adblocker - advanced user/medium mode - blocks ads, browser firewall
- Nano Adblocker - same as above
- MBBE - malware/phishing
- uBO - same as Nano
- MBBE - malware/phishing, since FF needs help!
- cookie autodelete - cookie management
- FF Containers - isolates tabs/processes for privacy & security
I still use Edge the most because it's simple, clean and efficient for my uses!
