@eitland yup! SO MANY decent tools and cool softwares are hosted on AWS servers ಠ_ಠ it's really maddening. Alternatives ask for a lot of efforts and loss of comfort and convenience. That's the price of our privacy :(
@mcpaccard Hi. I took inspiration from this Kashmir Hill's research series, and reused data from VPN Dhruv created for her research, I built this Firefox addon to help everyone easily replicate Kash's research in their browser without complex VPN setup.

@mcpaccard great article. Thanks for sharing.
