Privacy Browser does not support plugins for security and privacy reasons.

Hm, interesting vector of movement.

If so i have some suggestions for internal functionality, if you don't mind of course.

-time zone spoofer
-reload all tabs button
-i dont care about cookies
-https everywhere
-cookies auto delete
-utm link crap cleanser when copying
-opt out of sh#ty google analytics

-time zone spoofer

See https://redmine.stoutner.com/issues/234

-reload all tabs button

I'm not sure I understand the use case for this.

-i dont care about cookies

I am not fully certain I understand what you are referring to here, but it sounds like functionality already included in Fanboy's Annoyance List.

-https everywhere

Privacy Browser already defaults to HTTPS connections.

-cookies auto delete

Privacy Browser already deletes cookies when Clear and Exit is run.

I am not fully sure I know what you are speaking about, but you might want to take a look at Privacy Browser's URL modification.

-opt out of sh#ty google analytics

Google Analytics is already blocked by UltraPrivacy.

Nice to hear about disabling timezone info in future release!

But i was talking about smth like this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/spoof-timezone/

-reload all tabs button

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/reload-all-tabs/

-i dont care about cookies

Very cool!

-https everywhere

So nice.

-cookies auto delete

And if browser will be terminated by Android OS due to the lack of system memory. Will it work in such case?

Like this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clearurls/

-opt out of sh#ty google analytics

Google Analytics is already blocked by UltraPrivacy. Neeeat!!!!

And one more question:
What is the difference if compare Privacy Browser to Bromite?

What would be the use case of spoofing timezones?

-reload all tabs button

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/reload-all-tabs/

What would be the use care of reloading all tabs?

-cookies auto delete

And if browser will be terminated by Android OS due to the lack of system memory. Will it work in such case?

No.

However, the next time Clear and Exit is run it will clear all cookies. Clear and Exit is run every time the last tab is closed.

Note that in the default configuration, no cookies are ever saved. So, for many users this might be a moot point.

I am probably not the best person to ask about that as I do not have much experience with Bromite.

Thank you for reply!

As for time zone spoofer.

Use: matching time. If you are entering internet from one location, then using vpn with another location.
Time difference will occur.

Local time should match vpn server time, to prevent detection of vpn usage.

RE: Is it possible to use chrome pluggins and addons? - Added by Neon Robot 8 months ago

As for Bromite,maybe some rough comparision, if you don't mind of course.

Local time should match vpn server time, to prevent detection of vpn usage.

The same will also be accomplished by not sending any timezone information. Along those lines, many people's devices often do not change the timezone when traveling, so having a timezone not match an IP address does not necessarily indicate the use of a VPN. But sending a minimal amount of information to the web is a core design philosophy of Privacy Browser, so removing the timezone entirely is the obvious place to go. Web servers have no business knowing your timezone.

All I can tell you is what is written on their own website.
