Atwood: Yeah, I was going through my blog…
Spolsky: It seems like half of all sites would be broken.
So, I need finer granularity of control. Part one is RequestPolicy for FireFox, similar to which (but not as fine-grained) is Cross-Domain Request Filter for Chrome.
Anyway, here’s the base configuration for my browsers these days:
|HTTPSEverywhere||HTTPSEverywhere||Avoid inadvertent privacy leakage|
|Self Destructing Cookies||“Third party cookies and site data” is blocked via the browser’s Settings, manual approval of individual third party cookies.||Avoid tracking; StackOverflow (for example) completely breaks without cookies|
|RequestPolicy||Cross-Domain Request Filter for Chrome||Browser security and performance, avoid tracking|
|NoScript||NotScripts||Browser security and performance, avoid tracking|
|AdBlock Edge||Adblock Plus||Ad blocking|
|DoNotTrackMe||DoNotTrackMe||Avoid tracking – use social media when you want, not all the time|
|Firegloves (no longer available), could replace with Blender or Blend In||I’ve have had layout issues when using Firegloves and couldn’t turn it off site-by-site|
