system feature, when enabled, causes Pluckeye to integrate more deeply with your device, meaning it will
control the Internet access of the device rather than just an Internet browser. It is disabled when Pluckeye is first
installed, but it is expected that most serious users of Pluckeye will turn it on. When
system is disabled, it is
easy to bypass Pluckeye by using a different browser that does not have the Pluckeye browser extension installed.
How to enable it
- Click the Pluckeye button in the top right corner of your browser.
- Click “config” in the menu at the top.
- Click the button that says “system: off” or “system: on”.
- Read the description.
- Check or uncheck the “enable” box.
- Click “Apply”.
It can also be enabled or disabled using a console:
pluck + system
pluck - system
system disabled by default?
system feature is initially turned off mainly as a safety measure. By requiring the user to turn it on it
manually, the user is then educated on how to do the reverse as well. And some users find Pluckeye to be sufficient help
for them, even with
system turned off.
system is enabled on Windows, only Chrome, Firefox, and browsers
based on them (e.g. Brave) may be used for browsing the Internet;
Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and all other browsers other than
Firefox and Chrome will not work at all.
system is enabled on Linux, browsers other than Chromium and Firefox will be slower, overblock the user, and
generally be much less useful than Firefox and Chromium. But they will still work in general. Well, with one big
exception: Chrome may not work at all, but Chromium should with Pluckeye 0.50.0 or greater. But see also
the important notes on linux.
system feature replaced the idea of levels in older versions of Pluckeye (v0.99.11 and older). Having Pluckeye
installed as a program on your device (not just a browser extension) with
system off is equivalent to level 1, and
system on is equivalent to level 2.
