Sadly has decided to stop development of the great visualization add-on for : support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/l
Lightbeam has always been a great tool to show how third parties track you across different visited websites and was often used in the scene. Alternatives do not seem to be available.

Anyone up for a fork? Mozilla even encourages one.

@igeljaeger is about restricting tracking but not about visualizing it in a way that helps you understand how third-party tracking works across websites.

@CryptGoat and after a month it was laggy af even with blocking

@sandro That's true, the rendering needs further work. For our use case it's perfectly fine to activate only when needed.

@CryptGoat i boosted your toot, but this:
addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/
it already looks like a Lightbeem fork.
i haven't checked the code, but couldn't it be an alternative yet?
