uBlock Origin (+uMatrix)
I've switched over to uBO for Firefox (no more weird WiFi drops) but still use ABP on Seamonkey.
AdGuard AdBlocker extension
After the latest ABP update 2.9 broke on Seamonkey/Thunderbird, I uninstalled it and tried uBO, which worked flawlessly. I uninstalled ABP, its element hider helper, Disconnect, and No Script, just leaving uBO on Seamonkey. I now use uBO on every browser except Slimjet, in which I use the built-in ad blocker.
Could this thread been creative by some marketing personnel?
When Adblock started accepting payments from companies to whitelist ads, I instantly uninstalled it.
Ublock Origin replaced it and it works better and faster, so that's a plus.
Am not very familiar with these 'blockers'.
Frankly I wasn't aware of uBlock Origin or other blockers other than the wellknown ABP and Ghostery.
Using Firefox with these two installed (AdBlock Plus and Ghostery).
I don't know... maybe this is an overkill ?
Maybe I should uninstall these add-ons and replace them with uBlock Origin ?
There is a review on blockers with uBlock Origin coming out as a winner.
Yes, uBlockO should be suffcient.
best in class solution.
give umatrix a shot,while you're at it.you won't regret it.
AdGuard, on both Windows and Android.
did you experience any conflicts with ag & hmpa?
I have to be honest: I am not really familiar with all the details of these specific add-ons.
There are so many different ones but not so many side-by-side comparison and/or 'neutral reviews'.
Most advices are usually coming from enthusiastic users.
Please don't get me wrong, this is really by no means any disrespect to you, or any other helpful user here.
Absolutely not, okay?
But I just want to say that without knowledge, one might get puzzled as to what add-on is doing exactly what
and how to avoid installing add-ons with many overlapping functionalities.
Uptil just now my knowledge more or less ended with ABP Ghostery and NoScript...
In my mind those were THE ad- or scriptblockers. They are wellknown and exist for a long time already.
My feelings were that all new stuff, well, at best they may stand in the shadow of the above ones.
The first two I had installed and replaced by uBlock Origin as this add-on is highly recommended here.
Obviously I never heard of uMatrix before.
Is this not greatly overlapping uBlock Origin?
For my browser, uBlock Origin. For my phone, Adguard Premium.
it's ok,no offense taken.
on the contrary,umatrix complements ublock when used in conjunction.
all it takes to understand the way they work is to read github pages by gorhill,the dev of two add-ons.and they're not complicated at all if you have a grasp of (ad)blockers,filters and fw's in general.
and ublock has no "useful ads" feature that comes preopted.
FWIW No conflict here between AG and HMPA.
currently using Adguard but wondering if Ublock Origin will work with Edge?
A version for Edge is available:
I just installed it but not sure I like what they are doing.
I use uBlock Origin on Vivaldi and Pale Moon on Windows and Chrome and Firefox on Ubuntu.
uBlock Origin on Desktop.
DNS66 on my phone.
I now have uBlock Origin on my desktop.
Never even heard of it.
Yes, I am out of it.
Thanks for the info.
I'm not familiar nor interested in the Edge version - but here's what gorhill writes about the required permissions.
