Add an option to redirect some domains to more privacy-focused alternatives.
I'd find it a really nice feature if the user could define a redirect in the domain settings.
For example redirecting reddit.com to old.reddit.com as it doesn't require JS or redirecting YouTube to Invidious, a private YT frontend. There's also Nitter, a JS-less Twitter frontend.
It could be implemented in the domain settings or in the global settings.
I hope this helps someone, I am already doing something like that:
I do a search for "hello world". In the search results there is a youtube video link. I long press it and select "open in app". Automatically it opens in a new tab using invidious.
The way I did it was by installing NitterizeMe, and selecting it to always open youtube links. Then I select the result to always open in Privacy Browser by default. So, yeah, you can use these two together to achieve it now. It even works for Twitter, Instagram and GoogleMaps.
However, there is still a valid reason to allow automatic redirection of links, as it would allow for a more transparent usage (if by mistake I simply open the link instead of long pressing it, I have already revealed my IP, UA, etc, to the bad actor server). And maybe it could also help to solve this other ticket of mine (two solutions in one I guess?): https://redmine.stoutner.com/issues/502
What do you think Stoutner?
I meant to say "per-tab".
With WebView you can't handpick which cookies you want to delete, if you choose to delete them, you delete them all. (though I believe a workaround for it would be the same that happens in the WebApps application, that uses backup copies to each sandbox).
With WebView you can't have JS enabled for a tab and not for the others (eventually the first one will have JS disabled as well).
I was convinced when JS is enabled inside an app (Privacy Browser for example) it would be so for all tabs. Maybe I am mistaken.
Anyway like I said we will need PrivacyView for more control over what the browser can and cannot do.
BTW what is the current situation for cookies, are you still planning fine-grained control for 3.x or will it wait until 4.x ?
