    uBlock Origin 1.17.2

    uBlock Origin (or uBlock0) is not an ad blocker; it's a general-purpose blocker. uBlock0 blocks ads through its support of the Adblock Plus filter syntax. uBlock0 extends the syntax and is designed to work with custom rules and filters. That said, it's important to note that using a blocker is NOT theft. Don't fall for this creepy idea. The ultimate logical consequence of blocking = theft is the criminalisation of the inalienable right to privacy. Ads, "unintrusive" or not, are just the visible portions of privacy-invading apparatus entering your browser when you visit most sites nowaday
  2. Popular AdBlocking extension, UBlock Origin has received a new update (v1.25) to protect Firefox users against CNAME Cloaking or First-Party tracking or DNS delegation or DNA aliasing. The Extension brings the feature to Firefox by utilizing Mozilla’ WebExtensions DNS API, since there is no such comparable API available for Google Chrome, hence Chromium browsers may not get this feature unless such API is developed by Google. While Firefox protects you from third-party tracking out of the box, if you install UBO, it will block first-party tracking scripts in the Firefox browser.
  3. The end of uBlock Origin for Google Chrome? There has been lots of talk about Google's proposed changes to the Chrome web browser's extensions system and how these changes would affect content blockers and other extensions. The new manifest file for Chrome extensions could end extensions like uBlock Origin for the web browser. Google changed some parameters after it faced heavy user and developer criticism but did not revert the course completely. Raymond Hill (gorhill), the developer of uBlock Origin revealed recently that Google rejected a new devel
  4. uBlock Origin for Firefox addresses new first-party tracking method The latest version of the content blocker uBlock Origin for the Mozilla Firefox web browser includes a new feature to detect a new first-party tracking method that some sites have started to use recently. The issue was first reported ten days ago by user Aeris on the project's official GitHub page. Some sites started to use canonical name records (CNAMEs) to bypass filters used in content blockers. First-party resources, e.g. a subdomain, are not blocked usuall unless they are known to only serve adver
  5. A team of Belgian researchers discovered privacy issues in how browsers, ad-blocking, and anti-tracking implementations handle third-party cookie requests. A team of Belgian researchers from KU Leuven analyzed third-party cookie policies of seven major web browsers, 31 ad-blockers and 14 anti-tracking extensions and discovered major and minor issues in all of them. Major issues include Microsoft Edge's unwillingness to honor its own "block only third-party cookies" setting, bypasses for Firefox's Tracking Protection feature, and use of the integrated PDF viewer in Chrome
  6. New ad blocker update boosts users' privacy and security with JS execution master switch. uBlock Origin, one of the most popular ad blockers today, has released an update over the weekend that adds an option to block JavaScript (JS) execution on a page altogether. What this means is that the ad blocker will skip the execution of any JavaScript files on a page, and only load the page's HTML and CSS code. This new setting is important because of several reasons. First off, it's important for the sake of security. Malvertising campaigns, traffic hij
