    Trading 4 extensions for 1 sounds like a much better option with all of the functionality, except for Decentraleyes which is useless abandonware.

    Trace seems to be working alright in Chromium Edge for me.

    Guys, since the pc is of my daughter who is 27 years old you will understand that I can advise but then it is she who decides above all the browser to use and its extensions.
    It seems fair, don't you think?
    That said, Decentraleyes beyond the effect on privacy allows us to save bandwidth.
    If someone shows me with facts that LocalCDN in this feature exceeds Decentraleyes I am willing to change extension.

    Too many extensions. They can all collect user data.

    Unless you're running Microsoft Defender in real-time it is pointless using Configure Defender.

    How do you run Microsoft Defender in real-time? I thought it was on by default.

    It is on by default if you don't use any other AV solution. If you use ESET NOD 32 AV, you don't use MS Defender in real-time. Consequently, you don't need Configure Defender.

    It may and may not be.:)
    I notice that you use CSS Exfil Protection extension.
    You note from Raymond's comment that he would never use it.


    https://github.com/uBlockOrigin/uMatrix-issues/issues/157#issuecomment-494750548

    Out of my curiosity where do you use it with MS Edge or Firefox?

    P.S.

    I too am in the process of purchasing an all in one Lenovo.
    Are you satisfied with this brand?

    Thanks for the link. Others elsewhere are using it. I don't use uMatrix either, which he seems to reference. That said, I have no issues dropping it if I see others posting concerns about it. I only use it in Firefox.


    Yes, very satisfied with it. Actually it looks like my employer, after many years with Dell, is switching to Lenovo.

    That has to be your personal choice. The only one I would say is almost in the "essential" class would be uBlock origin.

    @Sampei Nihira

    I just realized the link you posted regarding CSS Exfil is from May 2019 - more than a year before uMatrix went EOL.

    I have CSS Exfil Protection installed on my browsers, even though it hasn't been updated in a while it still works on the testing utility.

    I've actually just removed it, even though it works according to the test. From what I gather, the risk it protects against is less than the risk of using the extension.

    What is the risk of using CSS Exfil Protection?

    Thanks, and you are welcome :)

    Well it's actually the opinion of someone I have high regard for from another forum. Without being specific, I think he feels that because it hasn't been updated in nearly a year, and also that as with any other extension, it can read user data, so he feels that risk is greater than what it protects the user against. Mozilla is also not monitoring it for malware, so that's of concern.

    I think what it ultimately boils down to is to limit the number of extensions as much as possible.

    Ah, got ya. I guess I'm willing to take that small risk on my machines.

    LocalCDN works for more websites = less bandwidth.

    Easy.

    Not easy at all.
    LocalCDN claims reduced functionality in Chrome compared to Firefox.
    Running on multiple websites is irrelevant if some websites you never open.

    But a test could as I've already written make me change my mind.
    I am for giving space to young people,any volunteers?

    P.S.

    Another fact that stops me from using this extension:

    :confused:
