  • I-Still-Dont-Care-About-Cookies

    Debloated fork of the extension "I don't care about cookies"

    Firefox with strict Enhanced Tracking Protection.

    uBlock Origin with all available filter lists enabled (except the one for Mobile pages, if you're on dekstop).

    https://github.com/OhMyGuus/I-Still-Dont-Care-About-Cookies to reject all tracking consent requests.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account... for subdomains you want to log into but still want to access the main and other domains without being connected. For instance, I have it set always open mail.google.com in the Work container so that I can log into Gmail but still search google.com, navigate google.com/maps (etc) outside the work account.

    Then, install https://github.com/Cookie-AutoDelete/Cookie-AutoDelete and set it to delete all data from all domains expect the ones you want to stay logged into (Google for instance… but only inside the Work container mentioned above). Then, all websites data (including cookies) will be auto-deleted a few seconds after your close all tabs from that domain. You have to enable the auto-cleaning and support for containers.

    You can tweak a few more things but that should be enough.

    I also recommend the awesome https://gitlab.com/magnolia1234/bypass-paywalls-firefox-clea... add-on but only for users who support some media financially. It's fine to workaround paywalls (such a bad system) but good journalists still needs to be paid somehow.

  • dnt

    Archive of DNT deliverables (by w3c)

    I disagree that it’s common practice or standard. The W3C never even standardized it, mainly because of low adoption: https://github.com/w3c/dnt/commit/5d85d6c3d116b5eb29fddc6935...
