Bad for publishers since it blocks all ads but still the extension is goooooooood.
uBlock Origin prevents malware better than any "Antivirus" software on the market
It's one of the best extensions in its own right. Sometimes if you want to block an item on the page that exists when you stand on the item and disappears as soon as you run the specific tool, I hope if the problem has a solution. Also, if the image with Facebook founder Mark's face could be changed from the add-on page on Chrome story.
The best ad blocker, by far!
Not blocking youtube ads anymore. Doesn't block twitch etc. Overall getting worse every week.
