Stop tracking through centralized content delivery plus speed up Brave


A good addition to Brave would be to integrate Decentraleyes. I’ve used it on Firefox and he recently added it to Chrome, which I’m testing now. Judging from what it does it should speed up Brave (reducing requests to content delivery networks) and increase privacy.

I’ll copy/paste the information below from Github/Chrome Store.

Local emulation of Content Delivery Networks.
Protects you against tracking through “free”, centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.

Websites have increasingly begun to rely much more on large third-parties for content delivery. Canceling requests for ads or trackers is usually without issue, however blocking actual content, not unexpectedly, breaks pages. The aim of this add-on is to cut-out the middleman by providing lightning speed delivery of local (bundled) files to improve online privacy.

 • Protects privacy by evading large delivery networks that claim to offer free services.
 • Complements regular blockers such as uBlock Origin (recommended), Adblock Plus, et al.
 • Works directly out of the box; absolutely no prior configuration required.

Note: Decentraleyes is no silver bullet, but it does prevent a lot of websites from making you send these kinds of requests. Ultimately, you can make Decentraleyes block requests for any missing CDN resources, too.
