Hi. Any updates here? Maybe you can work together with the uMatrix dev? https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/

Lately Policeman is the addon I recommend to Firefox users for request blocking, as long as they run a recent enough version of both Fx and Policeman. Some reading material for you: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20189

(But I have no idea if Thrawn & GµårÐïåñ have interest in working with futpib for SABER development, or if futpib is interested in and/or has time for SABER.)

Thanks for the link, barbaz.

Is Policeman more recommend then RequestPolicy? I use RequestPolicyContinued 1.0.beta9.2 which is a fork and works great. Anyway i didnt try Policeman yet because it isnt compatible with Pale Moon.

IMO yes, but I am not the right person to talk to about RequestPolicy because it seems like RP would be too annoying for me personally. Thrawn uses it though, he would know more.

I haven't actually tried Policeman. barbaz mentioned an issue about revealing its presence to pages, but I believe that was fixed in newer versions?

RP's future is a bit uncertain; the original author has pretty much handed it over to a community and moved on.

As I noted in the other thread that's fixed in current version(s) of Policeman if you use non-default configuration.

I don't know if forecehh ever forwarded that message to futpib or not though.

There is no mess, both extensions work all fine.

Note that at the link you provide there never was any competent technical discussion about technical merits, pretty much only gossipy stuff. I will keep developing these two extensions just fine regardless of this.

Thanks for the info.

Actually this whole discussion was way off-topic, and it's not headed back on topic, so splitting and locking, let's not continue to clutter the SABER thread with posts unrelated to SABER.
