@markosaric I'm using uMatrix already, haven't looked into this tracking protection yet, does it anything that I'm not getting by using uMatrix?
@markosaric Okay good to know, I've converted some family members to Firefox so I guess I'll tell them to turn this on.
Seens like it should be a default though.
@conatus sounds good!
@revkellyn i think it's on by default since the last version but i guess that doesn't affect people who've downloaded it before that
@markosaric I just upped mine and seems good so far! That's for the reminder. (I have a combo of PrivacyBadger and DisconnectMe running too)
@markosaric That is a bit of a surprise tbh. I thought it would be much higher.
@markosaric what's the difference if I'm already using uBlock Origin?
@polychrome not much really. ublock origin more advanced and can block stuff this doesn't but this is more newbie friendly option
@markosaric might want to rethink the startpage recommendation; they got bought by some ad company.
@camjc yeah something to keep an eye on for sure
@markosaric I did that day one.
@a @Shufei@mastodon.social let me know how it works for you 👍
this is what mine says now: 13,739 trackers blocked since November 7, 2019
@markosaric I turned it on the first day. I had to turn it off a few days later. Breaks way too many websites. Too many sites rely on very intrusive tracking technology for essential functionality.
I've been using uBlock Origin for several years. I've gone back to that.
@Photorat i see. i haven't really experienced any broken sites yet
