i had the same doubt a long time ago, but i didn't find any reason why nano was better than ublock, i think ublock also has more updates... it's just my idea, but i'll be watching for recommendations

For me, hands-down preferred is Nano. Less site breakage out of the box when used in medium mode block 3rd party scripts & frames. And if it matters to you, Nano is currently based on uBO version 1.17.0 and uBO for Edge is only at Version 1.15.40. Faster development/updates . (y)

I was using uBlock for a few months, and I don't have anything to complain, only that it amost does not update, I was more than a month withount any update. So I installed Nano Adblocker 3 days ago and I'm very satisfied so far, but I don't have much to say yet.

Nano Adblocker is more updated on Edge. The uBlock author also likes Nano Adblocker changes and asked why he didn't commit to uBlock Origin.

Some might consider this a minor thing.

If you test this site: Content Filtering Proxy Detection - AdBlock Detection, TOR Detection, Proxomitron & Privoxy Detection - BrowserLeaks.com

It will detect ublock origin but not nano adblocker. Whether that moves in favor of one or not depends on you.
User summerheat investigated this over at Wilders.

µBlock, a lean and fast blocker

It appears the reason why it look like Nano is undetectable is because it contains
a rule for that site

||browserleaks.com/js/proxy_ab.js$script

So, in the end it appears that for Chrome and Firefox the best option would be uBlock Origin

As for Edge, well as it was previously stated it appears Nano is the only one getting enough updates.

Once again, thanks to summerheat for looking into this.

Thats good to know, wich one do you prefer?

Ublock is more popular + you can have nano defender integration to it aswell...might rever back to ublock origin

Edit: removed nano, back to ublock origin

For Chrome and Firefox, I would prefer uBlock Origin.

For Edge, it would be Nano. Considering that like some already stated it seems to have the more active development.
