arkOS is a lightweight Linux-based operating system, initially targeted to run on a Raspberry Pi, intended to make self-hosting server software as easy as possible. It has different components that interact to achieve these ends, chief among them an integrated application called Genesis which graphically manages the server and its components. With Genesis, users can easily add/remove server software, manage websites, change system settings and more from a reliable visual interface that's easy to use. arkOS puts a focus on user's experience, requiring no command line experience to run well. In the future, users will also be able to host their email accounts, chat accounts, and social networking profiles from an arkOS server just as easily.

BAD HARVEST is a form-mail CGI script designed to be called from links similar to "mailto:...". It helps you to hide email addresses from "harvesters" (automated email-address collectors) while still providing a convenient way for your visitors to contact you.

Cjdns implements an encrypted IPv6 network using public key cryptography for address allocation and a distributed hash table for routing. This provides near zero-configuration networking without many of the security and robustness issues that regular IPv4 and IPv6 networks have.

Hyperboria is the largest cjdns network, with hundreds of active nodes around the world.

Crypton is a software framework for remote storage, where the remote server has no knowledge of what is being stored.

The content is encrypted client-side before it reaches the server. The framework is designed to be easy for application developers to use, without needing experience in encryption.

Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.

Technical Information

- Supported Networks: Google Hosted Libraries, Microsoft Ajax CDN, CDNJS (Cloudflare), jQuery CDN (MaxCDN), jsDelivr (MaxCDN), Yandex CDN, Baidu CDN, Sina Public Resources, and UpYun Libraries.

- Bundled Resources: AngularJS, Backbone.js, Dojo, Ember.js, Ext Core, jQuery, jQuery UI, Modernizr, MooTools, Prototype, Scriptaculous, SWFObject, Underscore.js, and Web Font Loader.


If you're using uMatrix, Edit in and Commit these lines to My rules in the Dashboard:

  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow
  • script allow

Note: Decentraleyes currently only bundles scripts, and if you want other resources to load you need to change script in the above rules to * and disable "Block requests for missing resources" in the Decentraleyes preferences. This will however result in network requests to these CDNs.

If you use uBlock0 it shouldn't normally block these resources, but if you enable Advanced mode you might have a rule to block third-party scripts by default. Unlike with uMatrix we can't whitelist only scripts for individual hosts, but you can still control whether other resources are loaded with "Block requests for missing resources" in the Decentraleyes preferences. We also have the ability to let normal filtering take place as opposed to completely whitelisting everything from these domains:

  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop
  • * noop

With these rules, uBlock0 in Advanced mode will behave as in "normal" mode for these particular CDNs, which is usually what you want, but if you prefer you can change noop above to allow to ensure nothing from Decentraleyes is blocked.

DirectNet is a peer-to-peer instant messaging protocol and client software for multiple platforms, including Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X, developed by Gregor Richards.

Fat-Free Fox
Disclaimer: Fat-Free Fox doesn't enable or disable any feature by default. It strives to inform and educate the users and then lets them make a choice themselves.

Fat-Free Fox (formerly called Fat-free Firefox) is a multi-purpose add-on that offers Firefox users more control, protection and awareness about their browsing experience. It tries to strike a balance between strengthening the browser while keeping it usable at the same time.

Privacy safeguard

The add-on provides an easy, single-click way to disable the following features of Firefox since they can potentially be used to violate users' privacy:

  • WebRTC Private IP Address Leak
  • Beacon Data
  • Proactive Download of Webpage Content
  • Proactive DNS Lookups
  • Speculative Network Connections

Free Software Directory search
The Free Software Directory is a catalog of useful free software that runs under free operating systems. FSF staff and volunteers work together to collect detailed information about free software programs and organize it in a clear and accessible format.

This is a search plugin for the Free Software Directory.

A program is free software if the program's users have the four essential freedoms:

1) The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0). 2) The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. 3) The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). 4) The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
