    I'm still running windows 7. Is it over kill to have Adblock Plus, Web Of Trust & uBlock Origin? Would one or two of them be adequate? Firefox is my browser.

    I don't know know if you need Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin at the same time. They supposed to be doing same thing.

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    WOT is untrustworthy.

    I agree UBO only. But as a WOT replacement BitDefender TrafficLight (Free FF extension) is a good choice. But with UBO not alone.

    WOT had issues in the passt with trust and spying. ABP + WOT are futile using uBo.
    uBo is really superior.

    TrafficLight gives Green or Red check marks in Google search results. Different functionality.

    thank you, but at least ublock with block it if its on the list ;) or firefox safelist(s).
    i assume right that TrafficLight dont need BD installed?

    this one is semi and need attention, but it works

    to work they sure need to transmit page url, but do they have an ID like kaspersky do?
    in case of server downs they are useless. thats what i dont like.
