Hello,

Is the homograph attack a concern? I mean internationalized domain names, like using cyrillic letters instead of latin ones in URLs. I never liked changing default settings in about:config and I usually don't turn on javascript while browsing clearnet using Tor, so I won't change the network.IDN_show_punycode setting, but there are people who could be at risk.
If somebody wants to know more, please read Wikipedia's "IDN homograph attack" article.

Thank you for your attention.
