ADDON - MyBrowserAddon - Community for Open-source Projects ::

MyBrowserAddon is a community for open-source projects. It houses the documentation, tutorial, code related to open-source projects and is dedicated to developers who are interested in learning about and contributing to these projects. Here, you can explore different ways we serve the open-source community and also help us to make these open-source projects even more awesome! Open-source development promotes not only innovation but also accelerates progress in all aspects of software development. Currently we are focused on supporting non-commercial browser-based projects (addon, plug-in) within communities. But, in future we will branch-out to other areas including health and education!

Sécurité des navigateurs (Panopticlick ou comment une technique simple peut bousiller tout votre anonymat) - Wiki de l'internet libre - Korben

Des chercheurs en sécurité sont en train de travailler sur une technique pour dé-anonymiser les internautes. Il partent du principe que chaque personne possède un navigateur différent, des plugins différents, avec des versions différentes, des polices différentes, un fuseau horaire différent…etc. Et toutes ces petites différences, misent bout à bout, permettent au final de créer une empreinte unique du navigateur (donc de la machine utilisée pour aller sur le net). Ça, c’est ce que l’EFF a appelé Panopticlick et que vous pouvez tester en allant ici. Mais une nouvelle technique exploite les réseaux sociaux. En effet, en exploitant l’historique de votre navigateur, un attaquant (ou un espion ou une société privée) peut savoir sur quels sites vous avez été. il devient possible de clairement vous identifier en tant que personne lors de votre surf quotidien et ce même si vous passez par un VPN…

Use Greasemonkey Scripts In Google Chrome - But, there are some limitations as well (as with Opera — which also supports some greasemonkey scripts) - Chrome does not support @exclude, @require, @resource, unsafeWindow, or any of the special GM_* APIs.

Well, here is how to run userscripts in chrome : * Add this flag to Google Chrome launcher : --enable-user-scripts - Now, create a folder in your user data directory. Name it as User Scripts. - Save your all GM scripts in this folder. - If you want to import all userscripts from Firefox — you need to do it manually. We have shown you the way to backup your Greasemonkey scripts. Just navigate to your GM script folder in Firefox data directory as describe in this post. Now, you can copy and paste every script’s file manuallyAnd, you are done! Restart the chrome — and visit any related site. It is quite possible that your favorite GM Script will do the magic. - Important fact : Chrome supports “Early Injection” – the ability to run scripts very early in the page’s lifecycle. In Firefox, userscripts run after page load. But in chrome, you can set it to run before page load. For this, you need to add an extra line in scripts meta data section : // @run-at document-start

Greasemonkey comes to Chrome - get your userscripts ready!

Chrome has a secret weapon. His name is Aaron Boodman, and he created Greasemonkey. He now works on the Chrome Extensions team at Google. Even though Greasemonkey on Chrome isn't yet as mature as the Firefox version -- 15-25% of scripts might not work on Chrome yet -- it will definitely get there with Boodman's help. If you need some scripts to get you started, you can scope out Download Squad's 10 Greasemonkey Scripts You Shouldn't Browse Without, or peruse the large selection at
