- by Amolith, 5 years agoRated 2 out of 5It's a good extension, it works, but the whitelist feature doesn't seem to. I use Windscribe VPN and they offer their users the option to mine Monero for them (using Coin-Hive) and upgrade to pro for a month, add 10GB of bandwidth permanently, and reset your bandwidth for the month. I really like this and use it all the time, but when I try to permanently whitelist windscribe.com and refresh the page, it isn't whitelisted any more. This is a huge issue for me and I won't be using the extension unless this is fixed. If you want an add-on that blocks mining everywhere period, this is perfect for you; it's just not for me.
If you want to look at the Windscribe page to see what I'm talking about, here is a link:
This is my link; if you visit the page, up to 50% of you CPU will be used to mine Monero and it will be added to my account (if you do, thank you!). If you don't want this, I think you can visit windscribe.com/miner and you'll be able to view the page. It'll still mine with your CPU, it just wouldn't be accredited to anyone's account; it'll all go to Windscribe with no user-benefit.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThis can happen because other extensions such as Adblockers block Coin Hive before No Coin. When I visited your link, No Coin didn't detect any miner because the ressource was already blocked by my Adblock. Disabling my Adblock for that page made No Coin detect it and the whitelist feature work.
- by a4pacific, 5 years agoRated 4 out of 5It stops coin hiving dead, well done. However the icon on the top of the navigation bar stays flag up with an exclamation sign stays on even after you moved away from the known infected site. I would expect the icon will change back to normal if the site I am viewing now is not infected. To get rid of the warning, I have to close the tab where I viewed the infected site. I am using Firefox ESR
