@switchingsocial even better is uBlock Origin and uMatrix. I have a special setup to make it as efficient and easy as possible.

@Sylphox @switchingsocial i'm quite happy with uMatrix ( addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef ) myself, but it requires some understanding of how the web works. care to share your setup?

@krugar I'd love to, but how exactly? I don't think 500 characters is enough lol
