I can't believe it has been 20 days since I have last updated this blog. I feel like a bad GSoC'er. But, can't be helped. Firstly I have my own SVN branch now, that I use to update my code - you can see it here. I have added the tor:// and tors:// protocols and their handling, although there are a number of instances which enable Tor that I want to get rid of. I made some tests here, I am going to assimilate some of cssblocker's code to find the origin of the protocol calls and then disable it.

Most recently, I have been working on the referer spoofer. In extension development, a lot of functional code is available from other extensions. But for this one, I tried to start from the ground up. I used some code in the extension RefControl as a guideline, but mainly based my code around an http-on-modify-request observer example that I found from MDC. Anyway, the basic functionality is now working, after a few days of trying to pinpoint some silly bugs. I am going to add a few more things to it and then add it to the svn later today.
