Discontinued in favor of uBlock, a general purpose blocker, that not only outperforms Adblock Edge but is also available on other browsers and, of course, without “Acceptable Ads Whitelist”.
and if "muh cache" isn't good enough for you, here's ntop
things are as they should be. ABP and uBlock are the two major adblockers, and i'm hoping the heat ublock brings, forces abp to improve their extension. otherwise, by the time ublock is completely approved on mozilla's addon site, huge amounts of people will switch.
I don't have to. Go clear your cache, enable uHide, browse around random sites for a while, and then view your cache.
Now do the same with ABP/ABE/whatever.
You'll note that uHide will let ads through. ABP/ABE doesn't. At all.
I mean, seriously, how difficult is this to understand? All you have to do is try for yourself and you'll be a believer.
This is why I am convinced people like you are just uHide devs collecting your ad moneys trying to discredit anyone that dares tell the truth about your garbage software.
You're a fucking liar and a pile of shit. You are the worst kind of person in the world.
I hope you are found out and never given the opportunity to work again. The next ad you'll be serving will be "spare some change, mister?"
Plus I love how you had your little controlled demonstration ready moments after the accusation despite never having seen it before, almost like you spend time preparing for future attacks on your software...
>actually using uBlock
The same uBlock who is recently found to not actually "block" ads, but rather hide them after its been displayed. Adblock actually blocks them before they can even display them.

stale pasta is stale + I already did that: >>47511839
it was from an old thread
webm related, and your precious ABP is no better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpypOeK10N8
I don't even know why I bother replying
at this point you guys are just fucking around, notice how none of these bullshit posts have anything to back up their claims
>muh wasted resources
Okay, so assuming that "Unused ram is wasted ram" and "Unused cpu is wasted cpu," why does it use more resources, but still do a worse job than autismBlock™? Shouldn't more resources make it better and faster?
now in webm form for easier shitposting
0/10, not even trying at this point
>hurr durr 4chan is so unreliable because its the shithole of the internet xD xD
Shut the fuck up. Just because it's /g/ doesn't make it any less trustworthy than a reddit or even a 9gag thing. In fact, /g/ is probably the most trustworthy because "muh open source freedom".
Why are you people doing this? Fuck go watch some anime or something.
>claim destroyed by evidence
>BUT ITS NOT TRUSTWORTHY COS ITS /GEE/
>shilling for free
keep breathing heavy with your keyboard and fedora, friend
>trying this hard to seem like you are really laid back and apathetic about all this
ublock0 is the best blocker
>Unused ram is wasted ram.
>Unused cpu is wasted cpu.
I guess I need to write an operating system that uses all the RAM and all of the CPU at all times then.
What's that, you wanted to open a program or actually do something with your computer? Sorry, but since my operating system is already using all of the resources, you can't. If I allowed any free RAM or CPU cycles I'd be wasting them.
RAM being used in a productive manner is preferable to RAM sitting idle. Sticking a giant stylesheet into every page when it's not necessary is not a productive use of RAM.
It's NEVER preferable to use more CPU cycles on a particular task, it's a waste of electricity and time.
I wonder how many here understand german, but here's an article about how much of a shekel fest ABP actually is. No wonder they desperately try to discredit uBlock.
I have a question.
I use ABP and on some websites it has a bunch of bullshit elements that say "You're using an Ad Blocker, disable it to use the site, etc." My question is, are there any alternatives that block everything by fooling the sites into thinking theres no ad blocking, or are they all recognized as ad blockers?
uBlock or uBlock0? What will be the long term difference? As I see it after being absent from the web for almost two weeks there was some kind of online drama and now there are two version, with uBlock0 being something of a "LTS" without new features being introduced anymore. Am I right?
Sascha Pallenberg also gave mention to a astroturf account on reddit that was uncovered maybe two years ago.
The account(s) ran a series of websites and articles that appeared at first glance to to be grassroot in origin. They also included many 'user reviews.'
In truth, the sites ran right back to Till Faida, founding partner of Eyeo, commercial parent company of Adblock Plus.
When confronted, Faida, suggested it wasn't him, but that the effort was "clumsy."
Of course, that was b.s.. It was certainly his company creating those fake websites. They were registered in his name.
You can still find some of the stuff on the wayback machine.
uBlock0 taken down from Chrome store
As far as I know gorhill (the original developer) is focusing on Chrome with uBlock0, and his fork could become unsupported or unstable on Firefox in the future; the uBlock now headed by chrisaljoudi is the one that will be used for Mozilla add-ons with auto-update. As of the current, uBlock0 is still working just fine for me and still has useful features that chrisaljoudi temporarily disabled because he thought they cluttered the UI and confused inexperienced users, which is asinine.
Gave it a try, seems rather buggy, I just installed it clicked on it's icon and it just stays in a depressed state and can't be unclicked, is there an element hiding tool for it?
Where'd you install it from? The one on addons.mozilla.org is old and probably has some of the bugs that have since been fixed, they can't update it there yet or it'll be put in the back of the line for getting reviewed.
Also, yes it has an element hider. There's Block Element in the context menu which can be disabled in the options, and an eyedropper in the UI that you can manually select elements with and further refine them by clicking through the list and edit in the text box.
Oh and in case it wasn't immediately apparent, you have to click the gray bar with uBlock and the version number to get into where all the options are like the filter lists. Might wanna give this a quick skim-through.
The rest of the wiki might be worth a look too, especially the part about dynamic filtering if you ever get into that.
>I am pretty sure there are tainted versions of uBlock out there, so users can blame only themselves if they install from an unreliable source, which would be anything else than the Chrome store, Opera store, or the Github repo.
>However I look at this, the most plausible explanation I can think as of now is foul play: it just does not make sense that this happens out of nowhere with barely any change in the extension's code base/behavior aside small feature changes (cosmetic filter switch + less zealous strict blocking).
Thank you very much kind sir. Now I got an Ad Blocker for my Ad Blocker. Hopefully I don't need another one down the road.
