    That list is already in here, thank you. Maybe it's the replacement. This is now the beta profile and weird:
    MVPS 9.254 of 9.513

    Clearing cache and reloading all lists results in same numbers, adding MVPS list again has same numbers. Strange, but accepted, maybe a hickup. thx for brainstorming.

    For testing purpose i added "i-dont-care-about-cookies" extension and disabled prebake and same name list in ublock. The extension extends its own lists with some JavaScript expressions and executions. Caused by the newly changes with the cookie consent popups here.

    #edit
    this is now chromium v86 final, same lists and settings:
    "Fanboy’s Social" and MVPS list bot "0 of x", and now "EasyList Cookie" same. wth o_O

    I think your post is an understatement.
    Look at the reply from @gorhill :

    VERY interesting, Gandalf_The_Grey and bitpixl.

    If I was using this, I would discontinue its use for the foreseeable future. Like starting today. :cautious:

    Just combed thru and back tracked the information of recent findings on it myself.

    Today that I have more free time I did a search in the various lists.
    That rule:


    Code:
    /b/ss/*&aqe=

    is also present in AdGuard Tracking Protection List.;):thumb:

    Excellent, have that one active. Thanks alot! :thumb: This means Frogeye's list is now redundant/unnecessary? (in this case, Opera and Edge browsers. Not sure about Firefox).

    I trust Yuki's arguments.
    I removed the Frogeye list from New Moon and Chrome.

    Agreed! Removed Frogeye from Opera and Edge. As Mies van der Rohe probably said: Less is more.

    From my very limited understanding of Manifest V3 it will limit the number of rules UBO can use. Is anybody already using filters which come within the rules spec of Manifest V3? I'd like to see how my browsing experience with Chrome changes to determine whether I need to move to Brave or Firefox. See https://malwaretips.com/threads/man...to-test-in-microsoft-edge.104585/#post-909319 by Lenny _Fox for proposed rule limits.

    If it will come they will push programs like Adguard for Windows (not for free)

    Here's their privacy policy. Someone else that knows how this things work should be to determine if there's any issue

    From that GitHub thread and from a Ghacks post mentioned by @anon :
    I wouldn't keep it installed.

    Here's a comment from the author of uBlock Origin. I wished he would have expanded on this a bit more so that I for one could get a more complete understanding here.

    After literally years of ad-free Internet, it's now being eroded--thanks Google, you overly enriched virtual monopoly you. :(

    wtf cares about google's chrome and its decisions? There are a lot of more options to block ads but it's convenient to perform it in the used browser. on android i have system wide blocker: adguard. i dont have ads in my apps nor in chrome which is pure. and about chrome - we will see if google will lose it.

    Because for them it was superior when it initially released.

    LOL, good one. I've always been a fan of Ford, but in Europe the cars are going downhilll when it comes to design. But what I meant is that Brave has got some very interesting anti-tracking features, would be cool if Vivaldi also offered them.

    But of course uBlock most likely does a better job when it comes to ad and tracking blocking. On the other hand, I have been getting more website loading problems lately, probably caused by certain filters. Currently, comments on YouTube will once again not load, not sure what the hell is going on.

    Both Nano Defender and Nano Adblocker have been removed from the Chrome Web Store.
    That was quick.

    I presume that the extensions are then automatically uninstalled?

    But who knows what amount of data has already been sent to their server...:
    Code:
    def.dev-nano.com

    I have a question. I have seen sites containing tr-id or fbid which are trackers. I know ublock/umatrix can block pages considered bad and one of them is giving you the option to go to the clean page but is there a way to create a rule to stop referral and appear the link without the tracker referral?

    @rethink Give the URL of the page and the items you want to block. I'll research it and if possible, you'll get those rules.

    No. It need a mechanism like firefox badlist for extensions to disable them. I had a long time extensions which were gone, got replaced by another one in store. The only option to install such extensions is to load the crx/zip, unpack it and load the extracted extension in developer mode.
    If they were clever they won't block themselves. I would block it with the hosts file (windows) or another instance, some firewalls can do this → block telemetry → add host.
