https://fraidyc.at/s/is a blank HTML page that the extension injects content into - no personal data or identifying IDs (or cookies) are sent to this page. (This is done for performance reasons.)
https://fraidyc.at/defs/social.jsonis a list of rules used when fetching feeds. This is checked hourly for updates.
List of feeds and post content is all kept locally in a database on the user's device. If the user is logged into the browser, the extension will sync the feed list with the the browser's central account database.
