Description from store uMatrix: A point-and-click matrix-based firewall, with many privacy-enhancing tools. *For advanced users.* CHANGE LOG: https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/releases uMatrix put you in full control of where your browser is allowed to connect, what type of data it is allowed to download, and what it is allowed to execute. Nobody else decides for you: You choose. You are in full control of your privacy. Out of the box, uMatrix works in relax block-all/allow-exceptionally mode, meaning web sites which require 3rd-party scripts are likely to be "broken". With two clicks, uMatrix can be set to work in allow-all/block-exceptionally mode, which generally will not break web sites. See https://github.com/gorhill/httpswitchboard/wiki/How-to-use-HTTP-Switchboard:-Two-opposing-views for more details on this topic. * See ALL the remote connections, failed or attempted, depending on whether they were blocked or allowed (you decide). * A single-click to whitelist/blacklist one or multiple classes of requests according to the destination and type of data (a blocked request will NEVER leave your browser). * Efficient blacklisting: cookies won't leave your browser, JavaScript won't execute, plugins won't play, tracking pixels won't download, etc. * You do not have to solely rely on just one particular curated blacklist (arguably with many missing entries) outside which nothing else can be blocked: You are in full control. * Ease of use: uMatrix lets you easily whitelist/blacklist net requests which originate from within a web page according to a point-and-click matrix: - domain names (left column) * from very specific * to very generic - type of requests (top row) * cookies * CSS-related resources (stylesheets and web fonts) * images * plugins * scripts * XHR (requests made by scripts) * frames * others You can blacklist/whitelist a single cell, an entire row, a group of rows, an entire column, or the whole matrix with just one click. uMatrix's filtering engine uses precedence logic to evaluate what is blocked/allowed according to which cells are blacklisted/whitelisted. For example, this allows you to whitelist a whole page with one click, without having to repeatedly whitelist whatever new data appear on the page. All rules are scoped. For example, you can block `facebook.com` and `facebook.net` everywhere except when visiting a page on `www.facebook.com`. This way Facebook won't be able to build a profile of your browsing habits. The goal of this extension is to make the allowing or blocking of web sites, wholly or partly, as straightforward as possible, so as to encourage users to care about their privacy. The extension comes with 3rd-party hosts files totaling over 62,000 distinct hostnames (lists can be selectively disabled/enabled according to your choice). Ultimately, you can choose however you browse the net: * Blacklist all by default, and whitelist as needed (default mode). * Whitelist all by default, and blacklist as needed. Either way, you still benefit from the preset blacklists so that at least you get basic protection from trackers, malware sites, etc. Or you can disable all of these preset blacklists. Your choice. Randomly assembled documentation: https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/wiki ===== This extension is also useful to understand what the web page in your browser is doing, often without your knowledge. You have full ability to see and decide with whom a web page communicates, and to restrict these communications to specific classes of objects within the web page. The number which appear in the extension icon correspond to the total number of distinct requests attempted (successfully or not depending on whether these were allowed or blocked) by the web page. Simply click on the appropriate entry in the matrix in order to white-, black- or graylist a component. Graylisting means the blocked or allowed status will be inherited from another cell with higher precedence in the matrix. Red square = effectively blacklisted, i.e. requests are prevented from reaching their intended destination: * Dark red square: the domain name and/or type of request is specifically blacklisted. * Faded red square: the blacklist status is inherited because the entry is graylisted. Green square = effectively whitelisted, i.e. requests are allowed to reach their intended destination: * Dark green square: the domain name and/or type of request is specifically whitelisted. * Faded green square: the whitelist status is inherited because the entry is graylisted. The top-left cell in the matrix, the "all" cell, represents the default global setting, which allows you to choose whether allowing or blocking everything is the default behavior. Some prefer to allow everything while blocking exceptionally. My personal preference is of course the reverse, blocking everything and allowing exceptionally. This extension is also useful if you wish to speed up your browsing, by globally blocking all requests for images as an example. ===== BUGS, ISSUES: https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/issues SOURCE CODE: https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix (GPLv3)

  • (2020-01-17) Cobin Bluth: amazing features, allow or block anything in your browser, its like having full control of something you operate
  • (2020-01-15) DKone: How does this not have more reviews. This is a game changing extension. YOU now have complete control (and can see) everything that is trying to come through when you go to a site. Don't forget to ad Ublock by the same developer.
  • (2019-12-11) Piotr G: Genialne narzędzie!
  • (2019-12-06) Demet Yilmaz: Amazing extension. I feel like I am in control again.
  • (2019-11-11) Markus Varis: If it could just sync. I'm using it on Chrome and uni desktops that reset the settings every time. It's unusable for this purpose, MS Office web portal needs so much whitelisting every time that it's just unpractical. I have to remove it.
  • (2019-10-21) Reid Rivenburgh: Excellent, fine-grained way to control what your browser does.
  • (2019-10-05) connardman: Easy to use and works perfectly. Thanks :D
  • (2019-09-30) JON Cunningham: Its working great! I use NoScript as well for extra options.

  • (2019-07-30) simon emilio garrido rivas: hasta ahora es una herramienta excelenteeeee
  • (2019-07-23) TexanerinLondon: This is a really great granular tool to stop snooping and malicious websites (and those that carry malware like Google). Although not really needed at ethical sites like Gab, you certainly do on unethical sites like Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook, and the rest. Privacy is your friend.
  • (2019-07-09) Florian War: Es ist sehr schön, wenn man z.B. auf diversen Websites diese ganzen social media links blockieren kann :) An sich ist die Erweiterung sehr gut , da man damit sehr viele scripts von Websites blocken kann. Danke an den Entwickler und Publisher :3
  • (2019-07-04) Лапшинов Вячеслав: Единственное, чего мне не хватает - blacklist\whitelist mode..
  • (2019-06-22) Itigo Hosimiya: 上級者向け? 基本動作がファーストパーティの要素以外ブロックされてるので安心で軽いです。 その弊害もあってログインや特殊な動画プレイヤーなどは基本的にブロックされるのでメインには不向きですが怪しいサイトや海外のサイト見るには必須。
  • (2019-05-25) Thierry Brousse: Je viens de découvrir cette extension c'est un pur bonheur, merci à l'auteur
  • (2019-04-18) Michael Holmlund: For advanced users, but it's the best blocker I've ever found.
  • (2019-04-14) Lyn McKenney: Must have chrome and cross-platform extension even though i have yet to use the Firefox version. I'll add that I love NoScript but actually prefer the ui and structure of features in uMatrix.. there is no one config that fits all websites or use cases so you'll need to familiarize yourself unless you want to tweak and toggle it on and off as needed. Would love to see a donate link.
  • (2019-04-04) Sal Sally: good extension but i dont know how to use this app...my activities and browser has been managed by my organization..please help me
  • (2019-03-26) Mark W: In a word: clean. Clean, elegant design. Clean, fast, and effective. Clean webpages! The ability to customize what is allowed to load on a webpage is something I dreamed about for years, and uMatrix is the realization of the dream. The amount of scripts, tracking sites, etc. that sites bundle in these days is bizarre; you know something is wrong when you hear your laptop fan running fast whenever you visit a news site. Thank you Raymond!!! I am still looking for a way to export my settings for back up and transfer to other devices, since getting the settings right for each site is a significant investment of time. Perhaps a feature that could be added in the future.
  • (2019-03-14) Fernando van Loenhout: Designed for expert users, and provides control for those users
  • (2019-03-03) 王一凡: 网页会用JavaScript脚本获取用户的浏览器语言 ,判断出用户来自哪个国家。用户使用VPN来隐藏自己的位置,网站用JavaScript脚本获取浏览器语言,使用VPN也会暴露用户来自哪个国家,我希望uMatrix添加一个语言伪装功能,中国用户使用VPN访问美国网站,打开语言伪装功能,让网站获取到用户的浏览器语言是英文而不是中文。访问日文网站,让网站获取到浏览器的语言是日文而不是中文,隐藏用户真实的浏览器语言设置。我之前的想法是直接更改浏览器的语言设置来达到我的效果,采用这种方法要下载不同国家的浏览器语言包,浏览英文网站的时间结束,又要去浏览器里从英文切换中文非常麻烦。uMatrix推出浏览器语言伪装功能,访问韩国、日本、美国时会根据国家的不同,伪装成不同的语言,避免网站获取用户真实的浏览器语言设置。我去购买国外的商品,我用VPN,网站检测到我的浏览器语言设置是中文,判断我使用代理,不给我购买国外优惠商品。我用日本VPN访问视频网站,网站会获取到我的浏览器的语言设置是中文,给我推送中文视频,但我不想这样,我希望我打开浏览器语言伪装功能,网站获取到浏览器的设置语言是日文,没有获取到用户真实的浏览器语言设置。浏览器语言伪装功能要有中国、日本、韩国、美国这4个热门国家的语言。uMatrix一直以保护用户隐私,提供更快的浏览速度,获得用户的青睐。希望你能考虑我的建议,开发出浏览器语言伪装功能。

  • (2020-01-11, v:1.4.0) n ascentt: Stopped working for me a month ago
    umatrix stopped working for me in chrome a month ago, i'm not sure how to best describe it, but it doesnt detect anything in the ui ( there's no numbers in the grid of umatrix) so it's as it it's claiming to not block anything, and yet everything on websites is being blocked including payment processor frames, so websites cant be used at all, and theres no way to whitelist, and i'm fairly sure it's blocking things i previously whitelisted globally i would've uninstalled and reinstalled umatrix but cannot find a way to export/import whitelists
  • (2019-09-07, v:1.4.0) John Wood: Unable to load Solve Media antibot
    I receive the message "domain / ckey mismatch" even after disabling uMatrix. It works upon removal of the extension from Chrome browser.
  • (2019-08-29, v:1.3.16) bahrta sai: Blocks clicking on videos if anything is blocked.
    If I block/blacklist anything on youtube clicking on a video thumbnail to play it doesn't do anything.

  • (2019-01-22, v:1.3.16) John S Wolter: About about for websites listed by uMatrix
    The short explanation is that I want more background information about uMatrix listed sites. It would be a good start to understand the business of a website service. Sites could be simple advertising, trackers, data scrapers, and a whole long list. Second would try to indicate what that company or Non-Government Organization, NGO, is doing. Results of using anti-virus' sites' lookup features usually results in terse site statements like "No malware distribution yet". I looking to better understanding These don't have to be detailed. A statement as simple as "Selling gathered data to its customers" or "Delivered Ads platform". Add some anti-malware warnings. Cheers
  • (2018-10-17, v:1.3.14) Page doesn't load properly even though all scripts are enabled
    In this case I'm looking at the americastestkitchen.com website. If I turn off Umatrix via the "power button" the site loads fine. If I turn Umatrix on, go through the list of scripts and enable every single one (even the blacklisted domains) the top of the page is completely messed up with huge black images and some text. I'm not understanding how "off" and "all enabled" aren't the same thing. So, in this case, I can't use UMatrix on this site because the pages won't load properly. It's almost like there is blocking going on in the background that I can't see or manage. Love to hear any solutions for the issue. Thank you!
  • (2018-10-06, v:1.3.14) Thomas Rohde: Error MSG “ failed to modify the request header […]”
    uMatrix Version 1.3.14 Google Chrome 69.0.3497.100 MacOS 10.13.6 I get this error message: “! This extension failed to modify the request header "Referer" of a network request because the modification conflicted with another extension (Privacy Badger).” And then Google Chrome turns it off, and I have to reload it.
  • (2018-09-21, v:1.3.14) Marvin Mas: uMatrix funktioniert nicht mehr
    Nach einem Update auf die neuste Google-Chrome canary (64-Bit) Version 71.0.3558.0 funktioniert uMatrix nicht mehr. Die Erweiterung lässt sich zwar starten jedoch werden keine Domains mehr aufgelistet. Ich bitte um Hilfe Vielen Dank
  • (2018-09-08, v:1.3.14) A problem...
    After closing the browser, the list is cleared in the rules ...
  • (2018-07-13, v:1.3.10) Incomplete referrer spoofing
    uMatrix only rewrites HTTP referrer headers but the document object list of referrers show the original referrer. In JS console see: document.referrers To see the issue that arise with this behaviour, see the link on the site: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17520134
  • (2018-07-08, v:1.3.10) 胡适: 不要自动屏蔽
    希望不要自动屏蔽,这样导致无法加载或加载错误
