Privacy Possum does not have a threat model. Weird huh? We prioritize costing tracking companies money over protecting you. When considering some anti-tracking measure we do not ask "Is it possible to circumvent this?". Instead we ask "Is it cost-effective for a tracking company to circumvent this?". If the answer is "yes, no" we accept it.
Tracking companies are growing, they own more infrastructure, and make more money than ever. This means they have a growing economic, technical, and political influence. And they are guiding the internet into a ever less private place.
We think tackling the problem from an economic angle is extremely important, and will ultimately help shift the internet into more private place.
Privacy Badger is another privacy focussed browser extension maintained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I worked for the EFF on the project full time for 6 months, and found that it's current privacy benefits to be limited. Adding new privacy protections was difficult, or impossible with the current architecture. And the project maintainers were not interested in fixing these issues.
