    I've written a review of the Microsoft Edge browser preview build on Linux, covering installation and setup, settings, privacy options, extensions and third-party stores, everyday browsing, stability and speed, overall value and practicality, some other features, and more. Enjoy.

    Correct, but not needed. The version from the Edge Add-ons store is the same. The confusion is because of the publisher's name (Nik Rolls). That's because he ported uBlock Origin for the original (legacy) Edge first. Now he just publishes the extension for Raymond Hill.
    See: https://github.com/nikrolls/uBlock-Edge
    Maybe @gorhill can explain it better, if needed?
