#uMatrix is #finished?

I don't think so.


Today I got to know that the development of uMatrix has stopped for now. And sadly it's not finished, because there are a lot of issues still not doen. This even was one of the reasons why the maintainer stopped developing:
I can't and won't be spending any more time on this project, and neither on all such issues.
Soo that's a pity for me. I used to use "request policy" once, a tool that blocked all cross-domain-connections in a first place and allowed them only manually. That was pretty cool, this way I blocked all the trackers and potential trackers except I allow it explicit (for example I don't care if youtube.com uses resources from google.com or if twitch.tv uses resources from images.amazon.com).
Then one day request policy was discontinued and the developer recommended "uMatrix".

uMatrix is a browser addOn that does allmost the same: It blocks all cross domain requests except those from a whitelist. Additionally to request policy the user can even decide to allow images and videos from a domain but no scripts or frames. I don't use this feature a lot, I want to have control to which domains I send requests so they are probably aware which website I'm visiting but this happens with every request no matter if I request an image or a JSON file. So I tend to deny all types or allow all types.

So anyways… uMatrix also goes on pause. So I'm not in hurry, the AddOn works fine at the moment, but I don't know how long it will do so. That's why I ask you my beloved contacts: Do you know an alternative firefox addon that gives me maximum control over cross domain requests?

If attacked by a mountain lion, fight back!

This should be hilarious to read. Out later this year.



For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally bad that no one would ever try it. How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems is a guide to the third kind of approach. It's the world's least useful self-help book.

It describes how to cross a river by removing all the water, outlines some of the many uses for lava around the home, and teaches you how to use experimental military research to ensure that your friends will never again ask you to help them move.
