Topic: DNS leak in proxy mode
First, thanks for this browser, great idea!
I'm concerned with some DNS leaks while using the proxy mode. It seems that while the browsed url and all the material that comes along whtih (js, css, img etc.) are well fetched via proxy, some prefetch occurs for urls within the web page.
Please see this packet capture:
It shows DNS request to my ISP while browsing to yahoo.fr with EPIC proxy enabled.
This is a common behavior of chromium. One may be able to disable prefetch or even any DNS requests, ensuring its privacity but it must be with command line flags (eg --host-resolver-rules).
It would be nice:
to automatically force "no prefetch" or "no DNS requests" when proxy is activated
or to have a GUI option for that (no need to restart the browser)
or at least to warn the user about this DNS leak
Any thoughts on this?
