Anyone using Blur for privacy ?

this looks like a good security app, can mask credit cards, email and fone calls too...

these guys are doing a simple reporting tool for XSS and SQLinjection, not competition, but the reporting HTTP requests might be a decent test tool for me...

Blur is notorious around here for killing NoScript in weird ways. I for one don't use it, and I can't recommend it due to its high risk of extension conflict.

However, it is surely possible to run Blur in a separate profile with no other extensions, for times when privacy is more important than security ;) .

Have you used it enough to know if it can be run offline (as in, no Internet but just connection between client and server)?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
