Configure Firefox /Chrome for very slow and limited Internet

 
3r3-31. 3r33939. Let's try to make from, for example, Firefox a browser that will be useful when you have very expensive traffic, or very low Internet speed, and you urgently need to shovel a bunch of textual information in a minimally readable form, of course, without jаvascript. To do this, we will make a separate Firefox profile for a rainy day. This approach should work for Chrome as well, because the plugin uses the same plugin to reduce traffic. 3r33939. 3r3394.

RKN Alert - the base of Roskomnadzor in your browser

 3r3145. 3r3-31. RKN Alert - the base of Roskomnadzor in your browser Like everyone else, I use one of the easiest ways to bypass locks, which are now the sea. All sites open without problems and brakes. But more recently (2 weeks ago) I have a question: which sites are actually blocked from those that open and which are not? Check each site manually for the official website of the RKN - not an option, even though it is the most reliable way. Naturally, I went to google the right tools, but to my great surprise I didn’t find anything.

Veterius: Transfer of water to the phone via Wi-Fi (4 years from the batteries)

Veterius: Transfer of water to the phone via Wi-Fi (4 years from the batteries)
 
 
Once I was tired of taking water readings. It was possible to settle a magnet near the counter and to calm down on it, but this way I found unsportsmanlike.
 
 
My path turned out to be difficult and ornate. But the result was a device that sends water readings via Wi-Fi to the phone. Simple and easy to use and configure at least a student, at least humanities pensioner. And the familiar with the word "Arduino" is also uncomplicated for manufacturing. The device is able to work on batteries for four years (longer than the relationship with your former one lasted). This is also the first open project ...

Firefox will check the compromised passwords using the k-anonymization method

Firefox will check the compromised passwords using the k-anonymization method  
 
On Habr repeatedly mentioned the useful service Have I Been Pwned (HIBP), where you can safely check your password for leakage. People often use one password on many sites, so one small leak from any of these sites compromises everyone else, and at the same time, the "digital identity" center is a person's mailbox, through which you can change passwords on almost all services.
 
 
Unfortunately, the HIBP service is little known to the general public. Therefore it is very pleasant that the developers of Mozilla ...

We in FIDO Alliance just came to inform you that passwords will still die out in authentication.

Firefox Gecko, "which we lost"

Firefox Gecko, "which we lost" Evolution is on, and weaker, slower and ineffective organisms are dying out. Not so long ago we spent in the abyss of the history of the Opera-1? looking somewhere into the distance, silently listening behind the sobbing of sympathizers. Unlike the body of the last animal from the Red Book, it could still be used for 2-3 years, and the users did not look like necrophiles. A similar situation is repeated with Firefox on the Gecko engine with the latest most convenient version of ???. There is a lot of useful and habitual functionality, not only built-in, but also in add-ons (extensions). Even reduced performance ...
