Known limitations (browser extension)

We list surprising, non-obvious issues and possible privacy shortcomings in version 2.0.1 of Haketilo browser extension. For a list of Haketilo proxy's limitations, see here.

  • Currently, user scripts can only be injected to HTML pages.
  • Currently, user scripts under Mozilla-based browsers may fail to run on pages loaded from file:// schema if a CSP rule is embedded in a <meta> tag early in page's HTML.
  • On some (Mozilla-based) browsers Haketilo might disrupt XML preview.
  • Haketilo doesn't have additional features one could expect from a content blocker:
    • There is currently no option to disable Service Workers while allowing normal scripts to execute.
    • There is currently no option to disable loading of external/third-party fonts, tracking pixels or other strategies that are used by Google and similar companies to snoop on internet users.
  • There is currently no facility to anonymize queries Haketilo makes to its script repositories. This means admin of a Hydrilla instance could theoretically see the sites for which a Haketilo user tried to find custom scripts.
  • Haketilo is still missing:
    • UI Translations
    • Accessiblity features
    • Mobile support
  • Pages that were open during Haketilo's installation/enabling might break in weird ways (under Mozilla browsers) and Haketilo will not function there properly (all browsers). Reloading each browser tab is the simplest solution to this issue.
  • There are almost certainly other bugs.
