Help users in Iran reconnect to Signal

“We’ve added support in Signal for a simple TLS proxy that is easy to set up, can be used to bypass the network block, and will securely route traffic to the Signal service.”

mozilla conflict of interest 

End Mozilla-the-corp.

Give money from the inevitable Google settlement to Mozilla-the-foundation.

Enact UBI so more devs can contribute to the browser without fearing starvation.

Otherwise this absurd conflict-of-interest between making a privacy-oriented browser and the worst surveillance capitalist company providing funding will resolve the other way, with Mozilla continuing to sell its soul, until 'privacy' is no more than marketing.

(Which some might say has already happened...)

Helpful filterlist for uBlock Origin, "Fuck Fuckadblock," a successor to reek's "Anti-Adblock Killer list."

Found a blog post related to that comparison video w/ a more fleshed out script to test DNS blocking effectiveness.


Some fitler list ideas:

Pros: increased security due to leveraging threat intelligence feeds across multiple providers.

Cons: latency is coupled to the slowest resolver, and decreased privacy due to sending DNS requests to multiple 3rd party resolvers (rather than one or even none w/ something like Unbound).

I wonder if this idea has been implemented anywhere...

Watching this video [1] comparing the malware blocking effectiveness of 3rd party DNS resolvers got me thinking...

For some security focused use cases wouldn't it be valuable if there were a way to leverage multiple DNS resolvers with a strategy where DNS requests are sent to multiple resolvers in parallel and responses are returned only once it's determined that no resolver blocked the request? 🤔

Playing with Pi-hole [1] and PiVPN [2] on a VPS and learned about the Pi-hole Remote iOS app [3] on the subreddit [4]. Wow, it’s really nice! 😍
