adblocker Ad blocking softwareFor some time I was a strong advocate for Adblock Plus. The recent information about how they'll be setting the stage for better advertising seemed a bit strange to me. The story was about how Adblock Plus now sells ads. There's nothing really wrong with Adblock Plus doing this, they still honor their "Allow unobtrusive advertising" option and from what I've read it will work with how they will be selling ads. Since the news of Adblock Plus selling ads, I've made the switch to uBlock Origin. I figured I'd give it a try. I liked how well Adblock Plus worked and that it just worked. It removed elements and hide them very well. I tried uBlock Origin last year and it had problems doing this. This time it seems to work a lot better. The comprehensive list choices are also very appealing. Not only can you pair it with favorites like EasyList and EasyPrivacy, you can make use of other lists like ones by Disconnect. The overall performance is said to be better than that of Adblock Plus. Though I do question the testing samples ever since Firefox 41 fixed a bug that would affect Adblock Plus performance. So far though, I am liking and learning uBlock Origin. Let's hear what you think!
