Timeline for blocking 1st party CNAME trackers in Brave?

I’ve started using Nightly and wonder when Brave adblocking functionality will include 1st party CNAME trackers?

Thanks in advance!

Nothing just yet, but we’re aware of it. Note CNAME blocking has some false positives: https://github.com/easylist/easylist/issues/5039 so making sure we don’t break sites is important.

Does Brave adblocker block etags, or will it in the future? I don’t see any listed in the Shields>blocked trackers window.

Thanks again.

No ETA yet, but related report: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/536

But its also part of the protocol; https://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=3

Thanks. I appreciate your prompt response!

BTW, when Brave is able to block etags I’ll be able to go extension-free. Nice! :+1:
