For me is paranoia. Sure is better to use filters for ublock but for normal user without happy click is paranoia. Never i used filters and never i had one problem. One ad blocker one extesion like bitdefender malwarebytes or avira browser safety and for extra extra protection netcraft you are super secure. And if you use Kaspersky free or forticlient or and Avast the last time you don t need anything accept ad blocker. Is my poor opinion . All the extra extensions killl the speed of your borwser .
It kinda depends of your pc, only difference i can see is in ram being used, but still doenst matter because i sit at 60% ram usage while having browser, whatsapp, games, spotify, etc on...if you have cheap 200$ laptop, its total different case

For me the ublock origin is mandatory, i can live without other extensions because of avast web filter, bookmarks and safe browsing habits ( current setup)

Do i ever need netcraft or any other security/ privacy extension? Probably not
I would get rid of extension slowing me down or annoying me somehow, for sure :emoji_innocent:

Were all different and we have own choises of extensions, browsers, antiviruses and other lifestyle
I still agree overkill should be avoided, but im not punishing myself or someone because he uses extension a or b

my friend do not punish anyone. I just say my opinion. And a friend started to visit the forum and he told me he was terrified by the comments he had seen.

No worries, every comment should be always taken with a grain of salt. But i just did reset ublock origin filters, anything to recommend? I have google chrome installed with netcraft + ublock origin only. Lets try live with this(atleast for week?)

Ps. posted wrong picture first, now its correct

you will surely have more security. But for someone who has not experienced only to see the filters will see the evening nightmares:)

Because you warned me MBAM extension had many false positives, I phoned a few (older) relatives on which I had put on MalwareBytes extension on Chromium after moving them to Linux. They told me everything was fine. I also asked my wife whether she had encountered any problems with Chrome. She told me that there was occasion she ran into a website not responding after a Captcha challenge. When she tried on Edge the website had shown het the information. I could not reproduce it because she did nor recalled what website it was.

FP rate depends on each person in different country
in 1 month of active usage with MBAM extension, I did get ~5-6 websites blocked, which I guarantee they are safe. 1 or 2 are in english and the rest are not english. Some unsigned vietnamese programs downloaded from http are also blocked because they are not popular according to MB's user database
https is popular in the world but in some asian countries, it's just the beginning. Many are still http

I do install MB extension on 1 of my parents' PC, they have no complain yet

Found an old uBlock0rigin backup, so installed uB0 again to compare with my settings :) just to show difference. I used to grey-out ( NOOP) 3rd-party scripts and frames blocking for wesbites I would trust (like news websites). See picture below

Back to Adguard Beta with Simple DNS Filter (not because I think it is better, but just to prevent me from micro managing blocklsts and get used to this type of web experience with Manifest limitation of just 30K block rules on domain).

Fanboy's Annoyance list includes Cookie and Social Blocking. Fanboy Adblock Homepage is the Fanboy website. Check out his Ultimate list, it includes all Easy and Fanboy in one. To use it uncheck all Easy and Fanboy and then add the single filter.

I didn't see it on the first page, but I'm not going to read through all 50 pages just for this.
