The SugarCoat tool developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Brave Software can better protect users' private data as they browse the Web.
SugarCoat targets scripts that attack privacy but are critical to Website operations, replacing them with safe scripts that possess the same properties.
The open-source SugarCoat is configured to integrate with existing privacy focused browsers like Brave, Firefox, and Tor, and browser extensions like uBlock Origin.
