    Huracan,
    It uses uBlock Origin engine so the block as uO too blocks it for bundled adware in software.

    Beta is not mentioned on the app or Chrome store so users may think its stable version so provided the info as Beta may have issues.

    It seems light & good. It uses uBlock Origin engine so no probs on ads/tracking front & will be good.

    Would be good to know how effective is its proprietary 0 day threats engine.

    Guess currently its only for Chrome.
    I couldn't find the info on supported browsers & the product is not mentioned on official Zenmate website.

    Thanks, I left some feedback.

    Chrome users using Material Design for Extensions page, need to disable to view the Details pages.
    Code:
    chrome://flags/#enable-md-extensions

    ZenMate Web Firewall looks like nothing more than a reskin of uBlock.

    What's so special about it?

    CNET Downloads is blocked because most downloads are bundled - PUA/PUP/Adware.

    Is it just a Chrome Extension? If yes then people surely forgot what firewall means.
