    reddit.com/r/privacy | 2021-10-14
    uBlock Origin is a wide-spectrum blocker meaning it can block all sorts of requests besides ads, uBlock Origin by default blocks trackers and malware domains. You can even add/enable more filter lists to block more stuff such as spam sites or certain products/companies like Facebook.
  • Automatic whitelist?
    That will only disable strict blocking for the site. It does not "whitelist" the site by adding it to the trusted sites list, as would happen by clicking the blue power button.
  • What browser should I use?
    reddit.com/r/browsers | 2021-10-13
    1) Navigate to about:config 2) Set fission.autostart to true 3) Set accessibility.force_disabled to 1 3) Set dom.ipc.processCount.webIsolated to 1 (This will give each website 1 process instead of the usual 4) 4) Set identity.fxaccounts.enabled to false to turn off sync 5) Set extensions.pocket.enabled to false 6) Use uBlock Origin (uBlock Origin works best on Firefox)
