Yandex is way worse, even useless, in one test it was 1/20 and the second one 0/32, after 2 days, it is still the same. Sophos file scanning is the same, just 1 detection. I wanted to disable it, but it keeps bugging me to enable it, so I just keep it on, but it is like there is nothing there. :emoji_expressionless:
wow, the last time I tested, it was quite close to GSB but it's surprising how bad it is today

My favourite combo is CleanBrowsing DNS + Blocksi Web Filter (set to warn unrated websites too)
Does clean browsing perform fairly well with CDNs and not have resolution problems?

Edit: remembering my resolution issue with them was the timeout they had on DNS over TLS before. It was too short and would fail 1 in every 20 or so resolutions.

Not sure if I have understood correctly your question.
Before I used CleanBrowsing DNS on DNScrypt and I didn't have any issue

I worded my question poorly (sleep deprivation). My biggest curiosity is if cleanbrowsing has any problems with CDNs/streaming services routing to far away servers. Second question has more to do with DoT, which I think is just a problem with timeouts set on their end. Quad9 had the same problem. Cloudflare is much more forgiving in their timeouts.

It happens to me sometimes, I have DNS Cache disabled, so I guess they have some limit for the number of DNS requests, but F5 usually fixes it.
I had this same issue with Quad9 and DoT.

I had this same issue with Quad9 and DoT.
Sometimes I watch sports on streaming and I have never experienced any issue :)

Chrome+WDBP 18/20
chrome+WDBP+BDTL 20/20 => my recommended combo worked perfectly
How about Chrome+MBBE+BDTL?
Or Chrome+MBBE+WDBP?
Just curious to see how they stack up. I see the sense in your recommended combo: WDBP shouldn't be going anywhere so long as MS is around, and Bitdefender is about the most popular AV in the business; I've used BDTL longer than the rest. But I'm also interested in the viability of a signature-less extension like MBBE. BDTL has cloud analysis as well as signatures, which is great as long as they have paying customers.

MBBE is good bur the problems are it consumes a lot of CPU as long as you interact with your browser (scrolling, clicking,...) and it has quite a lot of FPs
WDBP doesn't have these issues because WDBP and BDTL only check a website once after it finishes loading and doesn't check anything else until visit another link (same or different domain)

moreover, since the release of chromium Edge, more and more users are switching => better database, better protection for WDBP and smartscreen

although WDBP can be weaker than malwarebytes, I still use it for performance purpose

Yeah. I'm kind of on the fence about the FPs. While it is CPU-heavy, it gives me a little sense of security when I think of somebody releasing an ItW exploit for Spectre. I once watched a rogue page open 10 new tabs, I blinked, and all ten tabs had the Malwarebytes logo when I opened my eyes. I'm not saying half a second figuratively, I'm saying half a second literally. I'd love it if someone can give me a signature-less extension that produces fewer FPs while still delivering the results. Anyway, I appreciate the info and your hard work. Thank you!

Tested the 20 malware links from @Evjl's Rain with Windows Defender and MS Edge Dev:
SmartScreen on Edge blocked 3/20
Downloads were blocked by Edge 16/20
Only the zip file went through.
Tested the 32 phishing links from @Evjl's Rain with Windows Defender and MS Edge Dev:
SmartScreen on Edge blocked 26/32
It annoys me that the zip file went trough.
I submitted the file to Microsoft and they haven't done anything with it yet.
Still undetected by Windows Defender...
Thinking of going back to Kaspersky Security Cloud Free (together with Hard Configurator of course) :unsure:

I wonder, is there an extension, which would allow me to use google safe browsing, ...
I guess, Google actually likes me, because they just did. It sucks at the moment, only 2 detections of out ~100 links, but it is version 1, so it is OK. :)
