As always..... great info. Thank you to @Evjl's Rain & @Gandalf_The_Grey

I expect Norton to come back from the dead one day... or... maybe it's like Norton DNS, and eventually will be abandoned.

MBAM itself seems more and more questionable (to me), but they do have a winner browser extension.

Thanks. I always think adding good lists into adblocker is better and more effecient than having a bunch of extensions. Squidblacklist seems very good. They said they aggregate and verify items from many different sources, open and commercial.

Do you not use any at all from the extension itself?
i use Nano Adblocker, but literally always tick every single one included. I used to have 1,755,916 network filters + 131,754 cosmetic filters on my PC,i have cut down now ofc.

On my MBP i just use Squidblacklist, + all filters in Nano Adblocker because they all seem to be doing their own thing and blocking separate sites that i probably would visit due to my constant urge to visit random sites and explore the internet , it also depends on how much resources people don't mind using or how much protection they think they require, i go overkill for security/privacy using the many free products available to me, which are surprisingly good.

@Evjl's Rain, at the moment i use Chrome on my MBP, with no security extension apart from netcraft and the filters within Nano, however, i would like to know, if using an extension like BTL or MB is counted as an additional security step or if it replaces Chrome Safe Browsing? e.g if a malicious download passed BTL, would safe browsing then stop it (if detected), or would it just download straight away completely bypassing safe browsing?

yes they work together, extensions usually block links first, if extensions are bypassed, google safe browsing will block them

I only use the 7 ublock filters and blockzilla for ads and then the 4 filter for malware/phishing

103,653 network filters + 14,076 cosmetic filters total

I believe it was due to the late time of testing. The main filter here is squidblacklist, which has been tested so many times by me in previous posts. It is average but better than nothing

the reason why I don't really like custom filters is that ublock/adguard needs to update filters everytime we open our browsers it it can take up to hours, they don't update filters immediately right after we open the browser => this delay can cause ineffectivity because malicious links are published frequently

we can reduce update interval but still they don't update quickly enough because aggressive updating will cause browser to be sluggish => users complain

actually the main filter in my list is not squidblacklist. The /phistank.txt blocks 99% of the links that I test. I just use squidblacklist as a backup for the rare occasions that /phistank.txt misses something.

i don't think it takes hours to update 4 custom malware filters in ublock origin.

my combine ad filter and malware filter =
103,653 network filters + 14,076 cosmetic filters total which is very small compared to others I have seen and ublock only takes around 70 -85k of memory which is nothing. those stats do mot make my browser feel sluggish
