@kev Just a traditional style ad blocker? I'd recommend uBlock Origin.
@Adam_Stambaugh that's the one I was trying to think of. Thank you, kindly!!
@kev uBlock origin is king 😃. I also use Cookie Autodelete and uMatrix
@kev ublock origin
@kev +1 for uBlock origin
without question (imo)
coming in 2nd, maybe: Privacy Badger
@kev uBlock Origin! No doubts!
The complete privacy setup (IMHO) is
uBlock Origin + Decentraleyes + uMatrix + Privacy Badger + HTTPS Everywhere + Neat URL
@kev U-Block and No Script --- will kill everything
@kev uBlock Origin for local system. PiHole for network. Both cover pretty much everything.
@kev have you considered pihole instead? Pretty easy and problem free.
@polywog yeah, but that won’t work when I’m outside of my network.
@kev If you’re running Linux on your laptop, you could set up lxc to run pihole in a container. It’s really light weight, and you’d be bringing a protected DNS server with you wherever you go.
@kev Use uBlock Origin and also have a pi-hole for blocking ads on my mobile devices.
@kev uBlock Origin (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/?src=search) I also use Privacy Badger by the EFF to stop trackers, and I PiHole.
@kev I have been playing with nextdns.io which can do all that ublock does and more, plus I can do it before it even gets to me. think pihole in the cloud. so all devices same policies!!
@kev uBlock Origin without a shade of doubt
@kev pihole on your network.
@popey I really need to get that done. Will do it this weekend if the weather is still crap.
Needed something for when I’m off my LAN though.
@kev I use Privacy badger. Actually it isn't an ad blocker, but tracker blocker, but most ads are trackers, so it blocks them. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/privacy-badger17/
@kev PiHole is pretty awesome too.
uBlock Origin or AdBlocker Ultimate
Ublock Origin, and what the other people recommended although I would recommend Privacy Possum over Privacy Badger and maybe Smart HTTPS over HTTPS Everywhere.
@kev I like ublock origin
@kev I can't provide a complete overview of ad-blockers but I'm using uBlock Origin for years now and I love it.
It depends if you are on or have access to your home network or not. If you do then #Pihole definitely. If you don't then I'd suggest #blokada https://blokada.org/ for Android or Nano Ad Blocker just for Firefox, but then you are maintaining multiple lists.
When I get faster upload speeds I'll probably setup a vpn to home and just use pihole.
@kev Just attaching my privacy related list of plugins - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/11298362/Privacy/ 🖖
@kev As mentioned already in the thread, I would say uBlock Origin. Plenty of options to configure that suits ones need.
