Sotos: uBlock, or Privacy Badger or Disconnect

Postby Paphitis » Sun Feb 17, 2019 9:06 am

You are probably the most knowledgeable about this stuff.

What would you run between UBlock, Privacy Badger and Disconnect. Right now, I am running all 3 but want to uninstall 2 if possible.

Also, thoughts on NoScript? Is it needed?

None ;) Some of the sites I create depend on ads and I therefore do not usually use anything that blocks ads (in some rare occasions I use UBlock). I also do not use anything that automatically cripples the functionality of sites. If everybody blocked ads then ad supported websites would cease to exist and almost everything would be behind paywalls or would try to profit from you in another way, which would probably be worst than showing ads. Micro-payments would probably be a good solution but no such service had any great success so far.

Thank you Sotos.

Just as I thought. I am just doing some testing right now involving the following:
uBlock
Disconnect
Decentraleyes
Privacy Badger
Duck Duck Go privacy essentials.

Also testing NoScript and HTTPS everywhere.

I am liking uBlock. It does everything the average user needs. And getting rid of the rest unbloats the browser.

Still not sure about HTTPS everywhere though. I ike the theory behind that one.

So might stick to uBlock and HTTP everywhere and ditch the rest. :D

Sorry, but all these browsers delete the cache upon exit and shut down. Also, they delete your history automatically.

That's if the user wants that. It's just a simple check box within settings.

Cache is a good think as are some cookies from the host site. You are just the internet TALIBAN trying to shut everything down.

Before you go Sotos. Your thoughts on these 2:

NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere

NoScript is pretty full on as it blocks Javascript over-zealously, thus requiring to whitelist your sites manually. I am apprehensive about it.
