Meet the Decentraleyes Developer

Why was Decentraleyes created?

The idea of Decentraleyes came to mind after I began to notice how many websites make people send requests to centralized content delivery networks in order to fetch or verify resources. Nothing like this appeared to exist, so I created it. Anyone should be able to evade CDNs without having to break a sweat.

I hope this will inspire web developers and remind them of the fact that their host is there to welcome their visitors and to provide them with whatever they need. There is no such thing as free hosting without bandwidth limits. Someone is paying for those servers. For a reason.

Complements privacy enhancing add-ons like NoScript, uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, RequestPolicy, BetterPrivacy, and Self-Destructing Cookies.

What's next for Decentraleyes

  • Advanced policy management for users who block requests for missing resources.
    • White-list only specific websites to allow them to fetch missing content.
    • Block delivery of missing content for individual networks.
  • Smarter resource version interpretation for handling dynamic notations.
  • Minimalistic and non-essential graphical user feedback.
  • Support for custom, importable, library repositories.
