Use a CORS proxy by default in the URL block

CORS usually block requests from many websites and make it returning blank.

Why the URL block doesn't use a CORS proxy by default? That way we won't need to find a CORS proxy anymore. Make Snap! use the popular one,

Why not?

There's many reasons - reliability being the top reason not to build it into Snap!

that would break localhost/lan servers

snap shouldn't be responsible for spamming a random cors proxy, and it shouldn't force slowing down the url block with one.

the best use for the url block is for a special hosted server and a cors proxy would just slow that down enough to be unusable for many purposes
