You will need to open this page from TBB settings (chrome-extension://bebdhgdigjiiamnkcenegafmfjoghafk/settings.html ) then press on UB protector a page will open scroll down to troubleshooter and press on extra installations steps and something should be added to TBB, press the bear and you will see what has been added.

My bad install Nano Defender same time or along with TBB to get the above working right. Sorry for not putting it first, my bad.

Edge with Nano Adblocker @ Advanced Medium Mode Block 3rd party scripts & frames - NO adblocker detected @browserleaks.

FF with uBO @ Medium Mode Block 3rd party scripts & frames - YES Adblocker detected @ browserleaks.
Edge wins again! (y)
I found that disabling AdBlock, Easy List & Easy Privacy lists in NA & uBO both Edge and FF = no adblocker detected in Default or Medium modes.
Default mode using: 1Hosts, StevenBlack & squidblacklist

Oh, I guess I thought Nano Defender was for use with Nano Adblocker and uBO. (y)
If you take a look at edge extensions, you can only see nano adblocker there in microsoft store. So i think nano defender is only working for ubo / tunnelbear and for nano adblocker its integrated. Actually default UBO is enough for me, since defender just mostly breaks players i usually watch to wich makes me basically turn off whole adblocker on those sites

I am surprised by Comodo Online Security's improvement in your latest test, I wonder what happened?

Hopefully Comodo will continue to improve it and add new features instead of abandoning it.
hello, I think comodo did so badly in my first test because it was the first release => it wasn't correctly functioning or there was something wrong with their cloud database so the extension could not lookup
now, they fixed it so it can work at full potential

Avira Browser Safety is good but its memory and CPU usage is out of control, I have seen it go over 600 MB before, they seriously need to fix that; and I hope that they will add the ability to report websites and issues from the extension itself.
I tried to report it to them, they said they would consider but it seems they have ignored it. I give up

I think that Ublock Origin's default lists and default available lists should probably be updated to remove the less effective lists and add more effective lists and enable a better selection of default lists, I wish that there was an option to report missed ads and websites to the creators of whichever lists you are using through the extension itself, and I hope that more developers will join in its development so that it can keep going if something happens to the developer; I also wish that some of the community lists creators would join their lists together and work together when it makes sense to do so.
I think it's very hard because the list is not maintained by the developer of ublock
the default lists he adds to ublock are the most well-known malware blocking ones but not many people have verified their effectiveness
recently, I found squidblacklist to be quite effective but in the past, no one knew about it

I watch this thread an all the talk about Ublock, Nano "Adblocker" and many more,did any one stop to think especially when people start to compare "adblockers" malware and phishing protection that they main job is "adblocking" so when people give advice to reduce the amount of filter lists it can be categorize as diluting the potency of the "adblocker" because it's being measured in a field which is not it's main purpose or focus.

IF a person is going to reduce filters then they must be using UBlock in easy or medium mode or complain about ads getting past your adblocker simple.

Now please tell me why will i reduce filters when nothing really in all test that i do get pass my filters & this is a
small example just to show, the proof is as i always say in the pudding.
Only thing i can think off is just better browser performance, but computers nowadays.. they can hold it... so its up to extension will it crash/break something because of overload...wich i think it wont when talking about ublock/ nano

Anyways i think dns, antivirus signatures, browser itself will allways be up to date but lists hosted by someone else than company is likely to get outdated someday

Also i can run browser virtually, where it gets isolated from the rest of computer

but its just user dependent what you need

I guess. I'm getting confused by what has been said in which thread.

I just copied it. Those arent Links. Except when they are. This is also confusing. :D:D:ROFLMAO:

I did look into it and It seems like this line is enough if you only want the imported ones:

I let the dns + forticlient do all that filtering. So i pretty much only need adblocker for adblocking and im fine.

But from now i have been using privacy extensions and tweaked ublock/nano to meet my needs

Imo using client or built-in adblocker is better than relying on adblocker with custom filter lists

But yeah, not saying those filters are completely useless since theyre one way to block malicious websites

Let's not get it twisted for a second Evjl's Rain does a splendid job educating people on protection.
IT needs to get put out there that adblockers jod is they title Adblocking first and foremost.
Adblocking - yes. Nano & uBO also function as a front-end firewall for me. But that's in Medium Mode. And with my set-up I never get ads or trackers in Easy Mode. I don't know when I last saw an ad. (y):)

Comparing

FilterLists | Subscriptions for uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, AdGuard, ... for Adguard English filter

Adguard English filter (84678) = Adguard Base Filters (comes with uBO default) + EasyList (83394) according to below

Adguards English filter and Easylist filter, overlap?

and

Adguard Base Filters is 100639 from below

https://filters.adtidy.org/extension/chromium/filters/2.txt

Does this Adguard Base Filters include the EasyList filter?

If yes, then having just the latter Adguard Base Filters (100639) would be sufficient, right?

Thanks

adguard includes easylist and their own rules. However, hey removed some easylist rules for some reasons and replace it with their rules

basically
english filter = easylist + 17k new filters - obsolete rules

so English filter alone is enough
