The goal of this project is to prevent sites from bombarding the browser with multiple non user initiated downloads. This would mean that a mechanism to differentiate between user initiated and automatically initiated downloads has to be established as it is undesirable to annoy the user with unnecessary warning and permission prompts even when the user himself has requested for a download.

The project also involves implementing some form of data collection technique (via telemetry) to measure the effectiveness of the implemented logic.
