ScriptSafe / Description

v1.0.8.x - "Can't Touch This"

v1.0.8.0 - Thursday, June 30, 2016
- Revamped the design of the Update page and the Options page: wider layout, larger/more readable words, and intuitive buttons. On the new Options page you are able to toggle between Grouped and List views by clicking on the button in the top-right corner.
- Fingerprinting Protection section contains the following options (all disabled by default, one or two have been added since v1.0.7.15):
--- Canvas Fingerprint Protection - protect against fingerprinting attempts through <canvas> elements, with the following options:
------ Disabled
------ Blank Readout (serve an empty canvas with the original dimensions)
------ Random Readout (serve an empty canvas with random dimensions)
------ Completely Block Readout (refuse to serve any data)
--- Block Audio Fingerprinting - prevent fingerprinting via the AudioContext API
--- Block WebGL Fingerprinting - prevent fingerprinting via the WebGL API
--- Block Battery Fingerprinting - prevent fingerprinting via the Battery API
--- Block Device Enumeration - prevent having hardware devices detected via the WebRTC API
--- Block Gamepad Enumeration - prevent having hardware devices detected via the Gamepad API
--- Block Canvas Font Access - prevent system fonts from being enumerated through <canvas> elements
--- Block Client Rectangles Fingerprinting - prevent fingerprinting through calculating element client rectangles)
--- Reduce Keyboard Fingerprinting (for advanced users) - make keypress timings more random to increase anonymity (note: adds a random delay between keypresses))
--- I recommend enabling all of the above options (except the last two) for increased privacy, and based on your needs disable the options that interfere with your usage.
- Added Remove Google Analytics (UTM) Tracking option (under Privacy Settings) - remove Google Analytics (UTM) tracking tokens before they're actually passed to the server (disabled by default)
- Added Remove Possible Hash Tracking option (under Privacy Settings) - remove possible tracking tokens passed using hash, where there is an attribute and value (e.g. #xtor=RSS-1) (disabled by default)
- Added Spoof Timezone option (under Privacy Settings) - spoof or randomize your timezone; useful if you use VPN (disabled by default)
- Added Prevent Clipboard Interference option (under Behavior Settings) - prevent pages from interfering with clipboard actions (disabled by default)
- Added option to apply user-agent spoofing on whitelisted domains as well (default behaviour is to disable spoofing on whitelisted domains to avoid issues, but enabling this option will spoof the user-agent regardless)
- Added Save as Text File functionality to the Export Settings portion in the Options page
- Fix Panel expand issue for Mac OS X users
- Updated unwanted content providers list
- I now have a Bitcoin address due to inquiries from people wary of PayPal but wanted to still donate! 39VJ5L9Yd6WocG6r88uE7ZZnM5J2M5bW92 (also found at the top of the Update and Options pages)
