This plugin is my favorite AdBlocker (even though they insist that they are not an AdBlocker), and it provides great options out of the box for making WebPages load quicker and with less distractions. I mean, without this plugin, browsing many webpages is nearly impossible. But this plugin allows to to control which sites you talk to, and which sites you trust enough to run JavaScript, or other components. I love being able to subscribe to additonal blocklists. This type of software is what should be used by everyone, when the security experts decide to ban a Domain Name, or a URL, those bans trickle down through a BlockList and having the option to increase or decrease BlockLists is a no-brainer. I used to have to purchase these lists thorugh a company like IBlockList.net, but for many years it has been proven that they are selling stale data. It makes me sick.

uBlock Origin

Finally, an efficient wide-spectrum content blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.

uBlock Origin is not an “ad blocker”, it’s a wide-spectrum content blocker with CPU and memory efficiency as a primary feature.
