    Updated Config.
    Great config.
    I would see if you can use less extensions.
    Browsers and Extensions
    Edge Chromium
    Privacy-focused Apps and Extensions
    Bitdefender Traffic Light
    Netcraft
    Ublock Origin
    Ghostery
    ClearUrls
    Smart Https
    Skip Redirect
    I would suggest removing Netcraft (MS SmartScreen and Bitdefender TrafficLight will cover malware and phishing) and Ghostery (uBlock Origin should be enough and is not created by an advertising company).

    Removed netcraft too (installed for 1 min is that a record? xD)
    Anyway all option netcraft cover can be protected by bitdefender traffic light too?

    Bitdefender protects against phishing and malware sites but not CSS-ing attacks. Netcraft covers phishing and CSS, but CSS attacks are rare in the wild. Stick with BD.

    Stay safe, not paranoid - my friend!
    Nextcarft has better detection and covers more types of attacks.
    But Bitdefender is lighter.
    But I recommend not using extensions other then basic ones like Ublock origin.
    All these extensions will increase your attack surface and the chrome account of the company itself can be hacked and serving malware although it is rare .

    Was thinking to use ghostery cause can block any new tracker by default in combo with ublock origin, But will try a bit if can avoid to use it.

    You don't need "Skip Redirect" if you use "ClearURLs". It does that already.
    Some sites redirect me in http with just clearurls, with skip redirect i can avoid that. Other side clearurls block on click addons that skip redirect no block

    I agree. Too many extensions. I thought he had removed some but I guess it wasn't many.
    I know but for my internet surf i need all this.
    Bitdefender traffic light -> for check url before enter.
    Ublock origin -> for block in general ads + cosmetics filter
    Ghostery -> block new ads and tracker by default, specially the one spammed in streaming sites
    clearurls -> for block on click popup in some streaming site
    smart https -> for prefer https over http
    skip redirect -> from try avoid redirect in http and go for https
    I tryed to remove 1-2 of them specially in ads blocker but i still get annoyed but some popup. It is my lightest possibility xD

    But you already have Smart HTTPS for that. It should automatically redirect those HTTP sites to HTTPS, otherwise its not doing its job properly tbh.
    Every extension of this type failed with those sites. Https everywhere, kb ssl enforce, redirector, i tryed almost all extension. The only workaround was skip redirect with 1 of https enforce extension (smart https or https everywhere)

    Okay, new try :D

    Keep:
    Bitdefender traffic light -> for check url before enter.

    Replace:
    Ublock origin -> for block in general ads + cosmetics filter
    Ghostery -> block new ads and tracker by default, specially the one spammed in streaming sites
    clearurls -> for block on click popup in some streaming site
    With the AdGuard extension.
    If something is not blocked by them you can report it and they will fix it.

    Replace:
    smart https -> for prefer https over http
    skip redirect -> from try avoid redirect in http and go for https
    With HTTPS Everywhere.
    You must block all non https traffic (icon turns red), if it can't find a https version of the site you will be asked to make an exception.
