: I created `Cloud Firewall` addon. Block connections to big 5 tech clouds based on IP address ranges they own. If a site/page/resource IP matches a bundled list of IP address ranges, it's blocked

It's not a hosts/filterlist type "ad tracker blocker".

It's "firewall" - looks at IP address of URL bar and 1p/3p resources.

Rhoo the ticks order does not respect the GAFAM order 😢

Otherwise it looks good !

@Zykino Well, I added Cloud Flare too. So the order no longer matters 😆 (yet to update pics in AMO listing, it's just a week old new addon)

If you wish, please take a look at this toot - I need some technical help to implement an advanced user's feature request. Please share any idea or just boost/share this toot so someone can help out :

@gkrishnaks I just discovered your add-on.

I was also trying to do something about Cloudflare by making an add-on. It is awesome that you were able to create this! I will definitely use it.

@RMW
You are welcome..pls share feedback if you give it a try!

@gkrishnaks @RMW
I don't have a lot of feedback.
It does what I expected.

Feedback:
- One thing that I noticed is that the whitelist is not available on the settings page. I don't miss it, but it might be useful for some users.

- I might have a tip for the rdns only works on firefox issue. I noticed that other add-ons which need that information use an external API to fetch that information.

Other browsers might implement dns.resolve in the future though. I am also not sure of that is possible if you use GPL. I think that it has to be AGPL for that.

(I am replying with this account, since the server of my other account seems to be down at the moment)

Hi. I mentioned this in update info page when I added exclude sites feature : those domainnames are stored to disk as sha256 hashes similar to how we store cache (for better privacy as any app in system can access addon storage data) I will add this info in settings page

Chromium had DNS API for addons which was deprecated long time back. I am looking into providing alternative dns method to add support for working with proxy addons
