SnowHaze Firefox Extension

SnowHaze is on a mission to protect your online privacy. This Firefox extension gathers the most important privacy and security features from the SnowHaze iOS browser and makes them available for Firefox users.

The extension allows you to create fully isolated tabs that do not share any data between each other. Furthermore, secure HTTPS connections are forced to establish encrypted connections to websites and mixed content is blocked to avoid malicious attacks. Additionally, privacy settings native to Firefox can easily be changed without having to get lost in about:config.

SnowHaze also offers other products for privacy protection such as the SnowHaze iOS browser and SnowHaze VPN with its anonymous protocol „Zero-Knowledge Auth“. More details about SnowHaze can be found on the SnowHaze Website.

Get the SnowHaze Firefox extension for free from Mozilla.

Get SnowHaze on iOS for free from the App Store.

License

This extension is licensed under the GPL v3 license.

Disclaimer: The GPL license is not a free license and GPL licensed software is not free software. The GPL license restricts your rights to use software heavily. It is designed specifically to be incompatible with many other licenses and because of this we are bound to use the GPL license. Since the GPL license confines you to the GPL ecosystem, it contradicts the very essence of free software and thus we do not endorse it.

You can build the extension yourself to use in the Developer Edition, Nightly, or ESR versions of Firefox.
