Google search link fix

Have you noticed when you do a search in google, up come the results, but when you click the site you want it goes through google first, like if you search korat forums up comes koratfart.com. if you copy n paste or right click from that link you get, a gibberish url as below

https://www.google.co.th/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CC8QFjABahUKEwjLh6TR87THAhVCHqYKHVwaC-Q&url=http%3A%2F%2Fkoratfart.com%2F&ei=zFXUVcvxA8K8mAXctKygDg&usg=AFQjCNFoeRi7GXDTafPLQeQCSPjDk8xUUA&bvm=bv.99804247,d.dGY.

so you have to go through google first. With this add on you get the direct link.

Google search link fix 1.4.9.1-signed No Restart

This extension prevents Google, Yahoo and Yandex search pages from modifying search result links when you click them. This is useful when copying links but it also helps privacy by preventing the search engines from recording your clicks.

Hi takeitor, sowhat , j/f & ben. thanks for the thanks  :)

The "data collection" seems to be the fashion these days, be nice if they asked your consent first.

I have noticed even with firefox there is a datareporting file, if you look in your profiles folder you will find it.
C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox.

Mozilla calls it a health report, it is enabled by default, if you go to. tools/options/advanced/data choices  you have the option to disable it if you desire.

I wonder what the developer's get out of it there's no donate button on Zenmate  ;)

ZENMATE

Another firefox addon zenmate which is a vpn and it's free. zenmate.com

Normaly with a vpn your connection loses speed, but on trying zenmate there was no difference in my download speed.

I had a choice of 4 locations Romania, Germany, Hongkong and the United states. When using it, i simply enabled it in add ons, clicked the icon (top right hand corner) of my homepage and choose the location.

On using a dns test sure enough my ip showed, 5.254.65.19 from Craiova, Romania, but who were the servers.

                                                    yes good old google

RIGHT TO CLICK - RightToClick 2.9.5.1-signed

Dont you just get peed-off when you right click a pic or text with javascript annoyances such as forbidden right click. This addon enables right-click, text selection, context-menu, drag&drop and much more where it is
disabled by Javascript.


Worked well for me righttoclick

IMPORTANT
Before using RightToClick you need to check the RightToClick options: Choose what specific page Javascript features should be disabled if RightToClick is started.If you find that RightToClick removed some useful page functionality, un-tick more check-boxes in the options pane.

WebRTC  Addon for firefox

Did you know that WebRTC allows JavaScript to access your local IP(s), without any user prompt?

Try the leaktest yourself  https://www.perfect-privacy.com/webrtc-leaktest/

On the above website you can test whether your provider assigned IP address can be leaked via WebRTC APIs. Browsers with WebRTC implementation allow requests to STUN servers which will return the provider assigned IP address for the user even if he is connected via VPN.

A simple effective way to protect privacy from WebRTC.
Disable WebRTC https://addons.mozilla.org/ro/firefox/addon/happy-bonobo-disable-webrtc/

A button will appear in your toolbar allowing you to toggle on or off, should you ever need to use it.

Onetab   addons.mozilla.org

OneTab - Too many tabs? Convert tabs to a list and reduce browser memory

Onetab what a great addon, we've all been there one time or another and been guilty of having to many tabs open, with Onetab it works by opening up a tab all of its own that offers a tidy list of the tabs that you had open along with a link to that page.

When your finished just click X in the usual manner and it will be removed from the list, You will save memory and CPU utilization because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in your browser.

OneTab works on both Chrome and Firefox.
