What is HistoryBlock?
HistoryBlock is an effective Firefox add-on designed for users who value their online privacy. This powerful tool offers a feature that allows users to specify a list of hosts to be blocked. These blocked hosts will no longer appear in the user's history tab, the list of recently closed tabs, and the download manager. With HistoryBlock, users gain full control over their browsing history and download logs, thereby ensuring their privacy is more robustly protected while browsing the internet.
