Does this mean ublock origin is here to stay
I believe so! I think Google quickly realized that the backlash that they were getting due to their proposed changes would have cost them a lot of users IMO. If the extension was still available on Firefox and if Google still went ahead with this change, a lot of people would have jumped ship over to Firefox. It's pretty amazing actually how 1 or 2 extensions can make or break a browser's overall usage.

It is not a surprise that Google is trying to cripple adblockers, after all ads (AdWords) is its primary business.
With its native adblocker and Extension Manifest V3, Google would have a lot of control and power, so I am glad to see that the deceit didnt prevail.

I figured push would come to shove for Google. They're showing a hint of desperation with their software deals to install their PUA browser, and the desperate sounding survey when you go to uninstall. They know Brave and others are catching on. They may control a lot of territory, but not all of it!
