I am using Uniserver for PHP web development and I am running windows 8.1 and have Kaspersky installed on system.
Most of my work involves working on WordPress websites.
When the Internet is slow—or even down—my pages takes a lot of time to load, as they wait for Google fonts, CDN assets etc… to load; until it sometimes times out . This is frustrating, while developing as I need to refresh again and again.
However, if I turn off the Internet completely—by disconnecting WiFi—it loads instantly, as no Internet is present, and pages does not wait until a timeout occurs.
Usually while developing I would like to load the pages instantly, even if fonts don’t work, and CDN files fall back to local files.
But, I cannot turn-off the Interent, as I need Google all the time.
Is there anyway—via firewalls or some Apache config—to block the Internet for websites on
localhost? So, my page loads faster while developing?
