LocalCDN is a fork of Decentraleyes and a web browser extension that emulates Content Delivery Networks to improve your online privacy. It intercepts traffic, finds supported resources locally, and injects them into the environment. All of this happens automatically, so no prior configuration is required. Feel free to use the following testing utility to find out if you are properly protected. For more information, please read the tutorial or the Wiki. You can also download the extension directly from Mozilla and just try it.
What are the advantages?
- Supports cloud storage by browsers sync feature (Firefox Sync or own Sync-Server) if enabled
- Removes integrity and crossorigin tags from embedded script and style elements to replace even more frameworks
- Font Awesome
- Google Material Icons
- Bootstrap CSS
- AngularJS, AngularJS-Animate, AngularJS-Sanitize, AngularJS-Cookies and AngularJS-Touch
- React, Vue.js, Chart.js and many other frameworks/libraries
- MathJax (minimal)
- TinyMCE (without plugins)
- Internal statistics about CDNs and frameworks (day, week, month, year)
- Export/Import your config
- Prepared rules for uBlock Origin, uMatrix, AdGuard and NoScript
Note: LocalCDN is no silver bullet, but it does prevent a lot of websites from making you send these kinds of requests. Ultimately, you can make LocalCDN block requests for any missing CDN resources, too.
How does it work?
An adblocker (e.g. uBlock Origin, uMatrix or AdGuard) decides which requests are allowed. Only if your adblocker allows a request, it will be intercepted by LocalCDN. LocalCDN catches the request after an adblocker and not before.
What's the different of LocalCDN in comparison to other CDN emulators?
LocalCDN with activated HTML filter (optional)
