  • When using a VPN browser extensions, Chrome provides two modes to configure the proxy an extension specifies the host of an HTTPS/SOCKS proxy server and later all connections will then go through the proxy server.
  • Inpac_scriptmode on the other hand, an extension provides a PAC script which allows dynamically changing the HTTPS/SOCKS proxy servers host by various conditions.
  • For example, a VPN extension can use a PAC script that determines if a user is visiting Netflix by having a rule that compares the URL and assigns a proxy server that is optimized for streaming.
  • The last one means when a user is typing something in the URL address bar (i.e. the Omnibox), the suggested URLs made by Chrome will be DNS prefetched.
  • This allows ISPs to use a technology called Transparent DNS proxy to collect websites the user frequently visits even when using browser VPN extension.

  • As we thought through how to explain using Github to build and publish a chatbot on Muxbots, we hoped it would be simple enough for a novice user, but as it turns out, there are some higher level concepts like branches, pull requests, and forking that you need to understand…
  • If you access the raw file by clicking on the Raw button in the upper right, you can immediately start using the chatbot by cutting and pasting the URL to the raw file into the main conversation of the Muxbots app.
  • Now you can commit this change directly to the master branch or create a new branch, test out your code in the branch by using the raw file link to chatbot.json, then do a pull request to add it back to the master branch.
  • As you can see, you can create a new chatbot, edit/manage the code, and use your chatbot, entirely on the GitHub website and not need anything else.
  • If you want to get a bit fancier, you can use GitHub Pages to publish your chatbot versus using the raw file link.
