  • Hi, so far it's the best I saw in this field I have some suggestions maybe for the next versions 1-the HOST field in the http request is fixed and not equal to the host provided in the input 2-the REFERER is also fixed, this can be a list of referrers or can be read from the input. 3-one extra feature, or maybe a new project, is to use slow POST instead of slow GET Thanks
