Major browsers to always enable hyperlink auditing

Post by barbaz » Sat Apr 20, 2019 3:57 pm

Firefox will enable hyperlink auditing by default - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/s ... y-default/

And other browsers are removing their option to disable it - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/s ... vacy-risk/

Yet another reason to use uBlock Origin.
