Ok here’s the quick rundown:

  • You should see a reassuring number zero in your Brave browser’s Shields dropdown or legacy browser-plus-adblocker.
  • There’s no analytics or funny pixels or javascript trackers or anything like that.
  • Or cookies (except the supposedly-harmless one mentioned below) and other such tricks.

However:

  • I use Cloudflare’s IPFS Gateway, which serves this website from their CDN if you access it by the agentofuser.com domain name.
  • It seems like they add a cookie of their own supposedly for abuse prevention.
  • I’m not sure if that means I should legally add the dreaded cookie “agree or… there’s no ‘or’, you have to agree’” annoyware. If you know more about this and you think I should, please let me know.
  • If Cloudflare’s cookie bothers you, you can access this website via any IPFS gateway, like this: https://ipfs.io/ipns/agentofuser.com. You can replace “ipfs.io” with any gateway you want.

There’s an upside to Cloudflare though:

  • They serve this website over a Tor onion service v3 by using an onion alt-svc header. So if you use the Tor browser to visit, you’re that much better off.
