What's your favorite adblock, or do you not use one?
Recently switched from AdBlock to uBlock Origin as it (supposedly) uses less resources. No complaints of either, although with AdBlock I occasionally had Chrome hanging on "Waiting for AdBlock" for a couple of seconds.
Same here. No regrets.
Yes, adblock does take longer, but ublock doesn't block everything, like bing ads.
Started to notice that uBlock is a bit "looser" indeed. But it's nothing that bothers me too much though :)
I think it's just called adblocker what I use.
Because ABP has turned to ****, and ABE's project is being abandoned, I decided I needed a new Adblocker. Luckely uBlock showed up. I use ublock origin on my linux installation with Firefox, and ublock on chrome (more or less universal ad blocker across all platforms)
As for browsers it's "Ad-Block Plus.", has great features.
also, combined with this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ghostery/mlomiejdfkolichcflejclcbmpeaniij?hl=en
It can be a good combo, Ghostery blocks company's from tracking browsing habits and searches.
Read its description on that page if u wanna know more.
Sadly ABP, only because i am to lazy to do the research on something better, and i been using them for (i dont know how long tbh)
Avoid using it on YouTube since then you deprive you tubers I'd income and drive them to quit.
You can always turn off adblock on youtube, and adblock has something called the acceptable ads program. And you could just contribute directly.
