    Haven't used Privacy Badger in yEaRs. So effective & easy to allow partial permissions to sites I need that full block breaks.

    I'm sure you all knew this but I didn't. :)

    Using with UBO & HTTPS Everywhere.

    Good going EFF.

    Can't you just block third party cookies?

    Afaik that would break a lot of sites & I'd have to mess about to "fix" that one site. With Privacy Badger it's much easier for me.

    one more add-on, one more attack vector. you can block 3rd party cookies and allow session cookies from visited sites.

    I will perhaps give it a try since I stopped using Ghostery. But I was turned off when I read that PB didn't work with a blacklist, but they have changed it.

    I use it on Vivaldi Browser in conjunction with the likes of UBlockOrigin-ScriptSafe-Possum.

    Rock Solid push back on the garbage

    I ran privacy badger for about a month in firefox and i noticed that firefox on its own was blocking the same items so i removed it.I understand that PB blocks trackers by behaviourial patterns but i saw no real long term benefit.

    I've been using Privacy Possum instead of PBadger and I'm quite happy to stick with it for now.

    Yeah it's a mix match experiment but main thing is to work them in one to a time, in combo etc. and just pull the one's that serve only duplication redundancy and keep those that together compliment one another to a tee. This is the best times of any before where add-ons have really impoved by leaps and bounds that variety is there for choosing the best preferred set up that is best for your particular satisfaction.
