This is an update to a previous thread here about Ubo filters lists.
These are my UBO filter lists.
Any comments or recommendations are welcome.
Thanks you for your contribution. (y)

There is no general reference in this context--mainly because there are too many software and hardware variables. You compare your own browser's performance with itself--with some parameter on or off. For example: here are my results. Honestly, I expected a more even performance with uBO on vs. off but it is what it is. Windows 10 | Firefox v. 120.0 | Sandboxie | 98,514 network filters | 128,499 cosmetic filters. The images are uBO OFF and ON respectively. I retested several times and the results were the same.
Again, this was just an errant idea to compare the possible effects of an extension. Subjectively, I don't notice anything different with uBO on or off. So take this with a heaping spoonful of your fave seasoning.
it was a good idea -- I turned ubo off and this time I got 55.6 (maybe a lower score is "better" :unsure::ROFLMAO:) or "about the same" / same as you... :unsure::ROFLMAO:

It depends on your surfing habits. You can look through this thread for additional filters that you can test for benefits. You can also check this resource. He offers what I find to be both reliable and sensible options and advice.

Now using Yokoffing's "Pro" Setup, from the link oldschool provided above:

uBlock filters.png

Code:
 "selectedFilterLists": [
    "user-filters"
    "ublock-filters",
    "ublock-badware",
    "ublock-privacy",
    "ublock-quick-fixes",
    "ublock-unbreak",
    "easylist",
    "easyprivacy",
    "urlhaus-1",
    "plowe-0",
    "ublock-annoyances",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DandelionSprout/adfilt/master/LegitimateURLShortener.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DandelionSprout/adfilt/master/BrowseWebsitesWithoutLoggingIn.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/yokoffing/filterlists/main/privacy_essentials.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/yokoffing/filterlists/main/annoyance_list.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/yokoffing/filterlists/main/youtube_clear_view.txt",
    "https://filters.adtidy.org/extension/ublock/filters/2_optimized.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hagezi/dns-blocklists/main/adblock/personal.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hagezi/dns-blocklists/main/adblock/spam-tlds-ublock.txt",
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/stephenhawk8054/PrivacyExtended/main/privacy_extended.txt"
  ],

nothing used in "user filters". This setup has been working splendidly for me so far :)
