comment Web browser | Disabling the download of arbitrary scripts
@allquixotic according to ABP documentation, blacklisting a whole page doesn't work, as the $document option is enforced only for whitelist filters. See adblockplus.org/en/filters#options . There is a blog post somewhere in which the author explains the rationale (it used to work in the past), but I didn't save the link.

comment Web browser | Disabling the download of arbitrary scripts
@allquixotic Except that with Adblock Plus, there will be a HTTP connection for the page itself, as the filters work only for elements in the page, not the page itself. I was going to suggest Request Policy, but as far as I can tell, same problem.

comment Why does Chromium connect to Google on startup?
If it is of any help, I wrote an extension with which a user can see (and optionally block) all net requests, including those made behind the scene like the above searchdomaincheck. Cookies can also be stripped from outgoing headers, etc. Name: HTTP Switchboard. Works on any Chromium-based browser.
