Public Service Announcement:
"uBlock Origin" and "uBlock" are two different privacy plugins for web browsers.
✅ uBlock Origin is the one switching.social recommends
❌ uBlock is NOT recommended
For more information on why they have such similar names but are so different:
p.s. Switching.social recommends installing both uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger (https://www.eff.org/privacybadger) alongside each other.
@patricksudlow @switchingsocial gorhill (the creater of ublock origin) explains here why it is a bad idea:
In addition, it doesn't bring you any benefit as they both use the same filter lists. So I'd recommend you to uninstall adblock plus and maybe add any filter lists you are missing to ublock origin.
