This add-on is an absolute must: it speeds up browsing by improving page loading times, and Decentraleyes improves privacy by loading resources from the local system and not from remote locations. Remote sites sites may drop cookies on your local system. They may also record your Internet activity since you connect to them using a web browser, and get information out of those connections such as your operating system, the web browser you are using, your IP address or location in the world.
Support from the developer, Thomas Rientjes, is excellent. There is a good description on the Mozilla add-on page, but when I tried the recommended test utility I got a negative result. A bit surprised and confused I contacted Thomas, and he worked with me until I got the setting right.

20180710-Tu., Welcome to the new world (although we use IPv4). So, yeah. So, you've got some caching proxies. Let's make THEM as useful as we can.
Third-party CDNs are bane of the Internet and harmful to users’ privacy. This extension keeps them in check.

Hatte schon uBlock und NoScript und dazu dieses essentielle AntiSpy-Tool macht die Sache komplett. Endlich keine zentrale driveby-Erfassung meines Surfverhaltens mehr durch CDN von Google und Konsorten. Warum Webseitenprogrammierer überhaupt mit dieser Technik auf die Privatsphäre ihrer Nutzer pfeifen, war mir schon immer ein Rätsel.
