Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery.
What is Decentraleyes?
Decentraleyes is an add-on for Edge that focuses on preserving user privacy online. It works by blocking centralized 'free' content delivery networks, thereby preventing their tracking features from exploiting user data. Much of the web relies on these large third-parties to serve content. While blocking ads or trackers doesn't usually cause problems, blocking content networks can break web pages. Decentraleyes solves this by locally serving files, hence cutting out the middleman. It works seamlessly with regular content blockers like uBlock Origin and Adblock Plus, and requires no prior configuration. However, it should be noted that it is not an ultimate solution, but it reduces the amount of information you unknowingly share with content delivery networks.
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.
