We have updated our notes on offgrid living in regard to software and bandwidth. Install uBlock and NoScript to disable ads and javascript to limit battery and bandwidth drainage. Use cpulimit to throttle expensive processes.


@neauoire I miss the days this could be further improved on by a low power computer running a USB drive for the cache for a transparent proxy running AdZapper as a wrapper to replace ads and trackers with a split second silent MP3, a single pixel transparent GIF or a javascript that does nothing but immediately exit as appropriate. Ultimately I think HTTPS Everywhere™ was a mistake as it made the web much less cacheable.
