NANY 2018 Release: UnClouder for Firefox
« on: November 18, 2017, 04:34 PM »
NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name UnClouder
Version 0.2
Short Description Replaces "the Cloud" marketing speech on websites you visit to correctly describe potential security issues.
Web Page http://mozilla.tuxproject.de/unclouder
Download Link https://addons.mozil...fox/addon/unclouder/
System Requirements
  • Firefox 57 or higher
Version History
  • 0.1: Initial release
  • 0.2: Grammar fixes, (virtual) DOM fixes
Author mouser  :P (just in case anything breaks)

One more? Fuck yeah!

This little side-project of mine is my first approach at a content script (formerly known as "userscript") for Firefox's WebExtension thingy. It basically grew as a playfield while preparing ymarks development, I just had the time to finish it.

Features:

If you visit a German or English website talking about "the Cloud" bullshit, this extension will replace that bullshit by "other people's computers" so you can easily see why the bullshit is bullshit.

Portability issues:

  • I only added two languages for now. I am lazy.
  • The UnClouder uses Firefox's "CLD2" language detector. Addendum: Chrome et al. support that too, but the messaging infrastructure seems to work differently. If anyone of you needs a Chrome/Vivaldi/... version, let me know that it might be worth the effort.

Enjoy or whatever.
