I’ve noticed that dark reader on occasion phones home to darkreader.org, also with a increasing amount of sponsored links on their page. So what does everyone think, are they safe right now or should they not be trusted?

    Most likely to sync their global blacklists and whitelists for dark and light filters for the addon, and/or as a ping counter for number of users using/removing addon. Also, the addon’s news section.

    I see no concern with Dark Reader, as a personal user of it since years. I thoroughly vet my addons, and “Dark Reader” and “Dark Background and Light Text” are what I trust.
