Haketilo/Hydrilla

[Haketilo/Hydrilla]

Internauts today have very little control over their web browsing. Many sites are no longer simple documents meant for reading but complex in-browser applications often equipped with facilities to mistreat their users. Haketilo is a browser extension that aims to change this by giving you complete control over the resources your browser loads for websites, starting with JavaScript. One of its features is the ability to replace sites' javascript programs with user-supplied ones. There is currently no other browser extension that provides users with a secure and fully free browsing experience of this kind. Haketilo works together with its repository, Hydrilla, which it can query for community-developed custom site resources. Both tools are available as free/libre software under GNU licenses. In addition, the Hydrilla API can also be utilized by independent developers who want to increase the amount of user agency in their products. For greater website compatibility, Haketilo will work alongside other browser extensions that mitigate harmful JS.
