Tor provides "Anomity", but using Google service with Tor is not anonymous because they're collecting everything.

There's a "blocklist for Tor"(*1) to fix this, but I wonder why Tor doesn't have "Restrict Access to" settings.

RestrictAccessList /path/to/file/blocklist.txt

Inside of /path/to/file/blocklist.txt:
# just a comment
# = just
# *. = all domain(incl. subdomain)

Feels like something that belongs on the "http-on-modify-request" handler in a Firefox extension, and not in the core daemon, so I'm inclined to NACK this as feature creep.

There are already add-ons for the browser that perform this functionality, so there's no need to modify tor browser or tor to do this. (Why not use Tails? It comes with AdBlock.)

The tor daemon can't modify HTTPS traffic to google, so the tor-based solution wouldn't sole the original issue.

And we don't want to have to add a (more extensive) HTTP parser to tor.

Please solve this issue yourself using a separate ad-blocker.
