I use Firefox, Brave and Edge Chromium
  • uBlock Origin
  • Cookie AutoDelete
  • Bitwarden
  • Notifier for Gmail
  • Change New Tab
  • Default Bookmark Folder (Firefox)
  • Windows Defender Browser Protection (Brave)
I'm still torn between Privacy Badger and Privacy Possum, so I'd like to know your thoughts on which one I should go with.

AdGuard (desktop)
Bitwarden
Windscribe
uMatrix

I'm wondering why no one is using uMatrix? I see a lot of Privacy Badger and a couple of Netcraft, are these extensions better?
uMatrix (and NoScript) are very good and powerful extensions.
But they take a lot of work for the initial whitelisting of your most visited websites and are too much for an inexperienced user or for shared computers. Played extendedly with them both, but nowadays I want something that just works. I prefer a good adblocker, a security extension (and a password manager).

Funny how many extensions some guys here use.

Indeed!

For your setup --> Privacy Possum because it blocks tracking, referers, etags and spoofs fingerprint. Plus it doesn't tend to break webpages.

I wouldn't bother with PB, it pretty much just blocks trackers.

4. I don't care about cookies
Hey, maybe you should know that if you activate the annoyance filters in ublock (i use the adguard and ublock annoyance filters) you'll probably won't have to use IDCAC... Maybe you should try. I've been using for a while without seen any advices about cookies anymore.

2. Privacy Possum
There is any benefit in using it paired with ublock?

Browsing Protection by F-Secure
I Never tried it! I'll take a look!

Decentraleyes
Hey, lately i found a bug with Decentraleyes that made me uninstall it. As you propably know, Decentraleyes asks you to configure HTTPS everywhere to use it. But the configs applied to https everywhere are reseting after you close the browser. Maybe you should take a look. (if you experience the same problem, pls let me know cause i'm helping some threads about it)


ClearURLs
Do you know if ClearURLs acts only locally or does it call home?

I believe that Browsing Protection by F-Secure only works when you have F-Secure (or one of the provider provided rebrands) installed as AV.
