HTTP Switchboard

Point & click to forbid/allow any class of requests made by your browser. Use it to block scripts, iframes, ads, facebook, etc.

An extension I use on Chromium called ScriptSafe (formerly ScriptNo) was recently updated and (mentioned in the release notes) the author added inline script blocking with help from gorhill and the HTTP Switchboard extension linked above.

It looks like 3 extensions from Firefox; RequestPolicy, AdBlock and NoScript rolled into one but also on steroids.

Switchboard appears to be very powerful but, I think I lack the level of patience required to operate it. :) The interface is a bit cluttered for my liking. But, if you like ScriptSafe on Chrome(ium) or NoScript on Firefox this one is worth checking out.

White House Website Includes Unique Non-Cookie Tracker, Conflicts With Privacy Policy

Yesterday, ProPublica reported on new research by a team at KU Leuven and Princeton on canvas fingerprinting. One of the most intrusive users of the technology is a company called AddThis, who by are employing it in “shadowing visitors to thousands of top websites, from WhiteHouse.gov to YouPorn.com.” Canvas fingerprinting allows sites to get even more identifying information than we had previously warned about with our Panopticlick fingerprinting experiment.

[…] Fortunately, some solutions are available. You can block trackers like AddThis using an algorithmic tool such as EFF’s Privacy Badger, or a list-based one like Disconnect. Or if you’re a fairly knowledgeable user and are willing to do some extra work, you can use a manually controlled script blocker such as No Script to only run JavaScript from domains you trust.

Colombian Student Faces Prison Charges for Sharing an Academic Article Online

In many parts of the developing world, students face barriers to access academic materials. Libraries are often inadequate, and schools and universities are often unable to pay dues for expensive, specialized databases. For these students, the Internet is a vital tool and resource to access materials that are otherwise unavailable to them. Yet despite the opportunities enabled by the Internet, there are still major risks to accessing and sharing academic resources online.

A current situation in Colombia exemplifies this problem: a graduate student is facing four to eight years in prison for sharing an academic article on the Internet. He wasn’t making a personal profit from sharing the article—he simply intended for other scientists like him to be able to access and cite this scientific research.

Another Argument Against The "Artist Must Get Paid" Nonsense | TorrentFreak

One of the most common (and false) arguments against sharing culture is that “the artist has a right to get paid when you enjoy something”. This is totally false.

The UK Did *NOT* Just Decriminalize File-Sharing | TorrentFreak

All it took yesterday was a single article to trigger off a tidal wave of copycat reports across dozens of sites including the mainstream RT.com. Just to be absolutely clear - Britain HAS NOT decriminalized file-sharing and to suggest otherwise only puts people at unnecessary risk. File-sharing remains ILLEGAL in the UK, guaranteed.

Israeli soldiers deserve Nobel Peace Prize: US envoy

presstvchannel:

The Nobel Peace Prize should be given to Israeli forces for their “unimaginable restraint” in their offensive against the blockaded Gaza Strip, says the Israeli envoy to the United States.

Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer made the appalling remarks at a pro-Israeli event in Washington on…

They gave one to Obomber and he is an authoritarian war criminal. May as well give them out to all the others while they’re at it.
