Fewer than 3% of Firefox users have enabled the Enhanced Tracking Protection.

Most people don't change defaults but it's such a quick switch for a big speed boost, a much less intrusive and much less distracting web. Here's how markosaric.com/firefox/

@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?


@conatus no, it's just a more hands off experience. you switch it on and it just works without breaking anything. but it doesn't block javascript, it doesn't block some first party ads that have no trackers etc that umatrix can do

@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.
