Looks like false positive, even on VT: 0/80
I believe if you create an account it provides a much higher score, if you dont have a account its simply +1 or -1, or it may be due to how old your account is.
Medium mode & do cosmetic filtering yourself to sites you visit to, might take a bit of time but you can make backup every time you add some cosmetic filtering to keep your own list up to dateHow... how do you survive the internet with that small filter?
I tried using uBO in medium mode but it breaks a lot of websites. I know how to fix them and everything, but it's just too much work for me. Instead I'm using medium mode on just a few pages that are riddled with ads, trackers and pop-up. For all other websites, I'm relying on filters mentioned above.Medium mode & do cosmetic filtering yourself to sites you visit to, might take a bit of time but you can make backup every time you add some cosmetic filtering to keep your own list up to date
Probably under 20 domains i visit regularly, its easy to set- up but i just use as many block lists as you most of time, could challenge myself to lesser list probably
Not using cosmetic filtering leaves empty ad placeholders, social media widgets, etc. other annoyances and I feel itchy if I see those I always open issues on Adguard/EasyList's GitHub to get those fixed by them.Maybe they're over-rated? I use only 23 of them on Edge and get on fine.
Actually this is accurate more than 95% of the time but not always. uBlock Origin can't parse all the rules from Adguard filters including Adguard Base, Adguard Tracking Protection, AdGuard Annoyances, AdGuard Social Media. I've seen this combo missing ads, empty place holders quite a few times. Some rules only works with Adgaurd extension. I've seen the reverse thing also, Adguard extension failing to parse a rule from EasyList related filters but less frequent than the previous combo. Only using Adguard related filters on uBlock Origin is not the best idea. If using only one then I would suggest to use EasyList related filters on uBlock Origin instead of Adguard. It works much better this way. Using both doesn't cause any harm also but if using less filters is a priority then uBO with EasyList and Adguard with Adguard is the way to go.you dont need AdGuard Base + EasyList (choose one
