    Cleansing the Internet, one page at a time. I have smithied a review of uBlock Origin, an adblocking and content blocking cross-browser extension, covering look and feel, old and new UI design, simple and advanced modes, element picker and zapper, Javascript, media and font control, logging, filters and manual list edits, accuracy, small snags, some other observations, and more. Have fun.

    Thanks, will check this review out. And yes, it's one of the best extensions ever seen, awesome stuff. And it almost never causes any big problems, with that I mean, it almost never breaks websites. :thumb:

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    How do I reverse the Block Element on a specific site? I blocked a couple click it buttons that are still there but I have to roll over them to see there options.

    Edit: from reddit.

    • Click on the uBlock Origin icon to open the popup panel

    • Click on the black bar (title bar) with the uBlock Origin version # to open the dashboard

    • Click on the My filters tab

    • Look for the ! with the date and time and URL or comment for the filter you made with element picker (The filter will be under that)

    • Delete the ! section and the filter you made with the element picker and click Apply changes"

    The easy way to unblock element filtering per site:

    1. Open uBlockO panel
    2. Click on Per site switch: "disable cosmetic filtering for this site"

    I just know that will be a fine read. Thanks as well. Will rummage throughout this write up with glee.

    UBlock Origin is been a time saver on multiple levels every since turning to it for a better net experience.
