    yet another try to bound people to *** comodo.
    and time will show how much Eyeo GmbH (owner of adblock and adblock plus) will allow such modifications
    removing the code to "acceptable ads" may brake license - except comodo made a deal to pay for that. so this wont be acceptable from my view and as mentioned it will bound users to comodo without need.

    ABP is old crap, error by design and memory hungry.
    get uBlock origin for chrome, firefox, android - the better choice.

    Why one will use these instead of original apps. Comodo people are really mindless some times.

    Need to remember that most of the ublock origin filters are from ABP.
    When ABP first appeared what viable alternatives were there to it at the time...?

    As to why should we use a comodo adblocker..well why not.?
    Lot of people use "forked" software of original apps so why not use a forked adblocker .

    ofc, like adguard, adfender etc are using those lists.
    dont look back - look forward. maybe AB/ABP was the only solution beside some other minor, thats long ago.
    there is time to change
    there is no fork from uBlock origin in active development, ublock is a fork of ublock origin.
    adblock edge as a fork from adblock plus is discontinued since june, even adblock plus is a fork from adblock.

    for me i would spend some money for gorhill to be independant instead wasting any intensive thought about comodo nor spending any dime on those []

    i cant people hold back to use forks but as long as possible some should use the originals and gorhill is really encouraged these times. i hope he wont sell ublock origin.

    I just installed UBO for Chrome and it works good for facebook ads and on other sites. I disabled AB for now and will see how things go.

    Ofcourse there is no problem in it but usually there is some reason when one uses a forked version like better GUI, ease of use, more optimization etc.

    I am not a fan of Gorhill, but why release a 1-on-1 copy? Comodo really :eek:
