Blockstream published a few updates to its block explorer that was launched last year 2018. The most obvious of the changes is the enabling of address search with unlimited transactions. Although it takes more disk space, that has led to increased search speed for the explorer. Secondly, disabling Java Script has also been made possible to allow for more browsing privacy as Java Script can be used to remove anonymity of users especially those using Tor, to improve user experience significantly. Thirdly, an API endpoint and a web form have been added to enable transaction broadcasting, a feature that developers or users who may want to easily broadcast transactions to the Bitcoin Network may find useful.
