Don't be panic by this type of news and experimental tests. If they want, they can fingerprint any user whether they use a certain amount of extension or not. Millions of people use Chrome+uBO+Google Docs Offline. There's nothing to be worried about. Browsing internet comfortably is more important.

I temporary disable uBlock Origin not permanently.
