Of course one being free is a huge encouragement, but please just evaluate the protection and consider as if they were both free.
Yep, they want to sell the full version to make a living, but you can only install the free extension as I did before:really? I didnt see a comparison on their websites listing differences between free/paid version but just selling a paid version, assumed that the free download was a trial.
my AdGuard filters in uBlock Origin (medium mode)Both can be free AdGuard extension (is mostly set and forget) and uBlock origin has a lot of options and modes you can use.
While i prefer AdGuard for it's filters I like uBlock Origin more because of all the options it has.
And you van use AdGuard filters in uBlock Origin, while great (and i do that) it's not the same.
For more info about uBlock Origin have a look at it's wiki: gorhill/uBlock
Thanks, I know you can do that.
Yes, I used to run AdGuard browser extension (with NoScript) for AdGuard great! filters.Thanks, I know you can do that.
But when I browse with AdGuard to Hardware.Info Nederland (for example) the European Cookie Notice is blocked by the annoyances filter.
With uBlock origin and the same filters the same notice is not blocked.
So AdGuard filters work well with uBlock Origin, but work better with AdGuard
You can subscribe to virtually any filter out there, I prefer "I don't care about cookies" to block notices.With uBlock origin and the same filters the same notice is not blocked.
The desktop version is a little better though, it blocks elements before they are downloaded (like DNS), the extension does it afterwards.Yep, they want to sell the full version to make a living, but you can only install the free extension as I did before:
On sites you frequent, these pop-ups and others e.g. "enable push notification" on MT, can easily be eliminated in uBO/Nano with specific rules created via "Block element" context function. Used like this you can use less filter lists or not depend on those you do use.With uBlock origin and the same filters the same notice is not blocked.
Yes it is, but as @Gandalf_The_Grey posted elsewhere, uBO seems to be optimized now with its frequent updates and performs as well or better than Nano. I have made the switch in all but old Edge browser.but Nano Adblocker is highly praised lately, as sort of a successor to uBlock Origin.
And if you want to do even more there is also uMatrix: gorhill/uMatrixuBlock Origin is NOT an "ad blocker": it is a wide-spectrum blocker -- which happens to be able to function as a mere "ad blocker". The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites -- through EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Peter Lowe’s ad/tracking/malware servers, various lists of malware sites, and uBlock Origin's own filter lists.
That's the problem when posting on a forum with geeks/enthusiastsI have no idea of what everyone is talking about, what is this filters thing to be used in uBlock?
