#41 Network Boundary Shield and NoScript
Opened 8 months ago by polcak. Modified 8 months ago

Hello Giorgio,

I see that you added something like NBS to NoScript and you have some feedback on https://hackademix.net/2022/02/17/contextual-policies-lan-protection-abe-quantum-in-noscript-113/.

"Even when DNS resolution is performed, it's done in a stage of the request processing when any veto from content blockers has already happened, and parallel DNS querying is already undergoing or completed by the browser itself, therefore more often than not it just uses cached DNS resolution records without even hitting the net (and only if the browser would do it anyway)."

This was also my impression and I think that we even tested this. But we did not test with HTTP proxy. Are any changes like https://github.com/hackademix/noscript/commit/878a005de8a62e2187c57d5eb23c914fc75da833 or https://github.com/hackademix/noscript/commit/b5916981c10499b213b48ccedced60c826eddc24?
