I suggest you to start from the extension icon title.

I'll read it again and see.

I wish there would be a test where this kind of element blockers tested against malicious codes inside a website, malvertisings or popups.

I agree. It would be interesting to see it perform with no active AV, etc.

He states that blocking 3d-party(only over the HTTP) except the images and CSS files, will make browsing much more secure. This applies to my configuration too. I'm blocking all 3rd-parties except the CSS and images.

Yes, I've been following this as well. (y)

My new config.

I uninstalled everything except Defender. Installed VoodoShield and WiseVector instead. I think these three are a good combo, maybe I should consider replacing Defender with another antivirus as it is high on HDD usage as far as I remember. I'm thinking of installing Huorong, but it has weak signatures, probably weaker than Defender's. I couldn't decide which one.
