    Adblock now whitelists a lot of adds and got compromised by that. No-one needs an add blocker that does this.

    uBlock Origin is the only valid alternative (additionally good to prevent several IP leaks in browsers).

    It is stricter in its blocking rules and can nicely be configured. Even @Daz uses it and he's very critical in that regards.

    I really do not know what you are looking for when you make these threads @Doghen This is the 2nd thread where you were giving an answer and yet somehow still feel as though you've not been answered (no offense).

    uBlock Origin
    • More sources (more ads blocked)
    • Does not get paid to sneakily ignore sources (such as Adblock Plus)
    • Is open source (can view the code used)
    • Uses fewer resources (low impact on your system and browser)
    • Works with Firefox, Opera, and Chrome (compatibility)
    If that is not enough of a reason, I do not understand what is it that you seek.

    BTW: There are two very similiarly looking addons; uBlock Origin and uBlock, the latter is abandoned.

    @Doghen do you use a VPN (i.e. Private Internet Access or any other)?

    Fortunately for coin miners websites, the vast majority of visitors are unprotected to effectively block mining and these don't even know that mining is actualy happening behind the scene, lol. That list above is for users like me who don't like anything messing around. So they don't care about us, a minority, that much. If they don't make money from our visits, no problema at all.:)

    Not having no stinking miners running in my browser, nor any stinking ads, no compromise

    If you can't afford to run a site without sticking ads all over it or infecting machines with miners, don't start a site, us, the members are the reason the site is even a site, remove us and you have nothing, so we're already paying our way, don't make out like we owe you something

    This is a long debate which has been going on forever on The Internet. Folks who start up websites obviously have the funds to be running a website, but there is no shame or harm in wanting to offset the balance. Especially if your website becomes super popular and your monthly cost reaches €5,000 per month (€60,000.00 per year). Then you have the entitled users who believe everything should be free and by their mentality, only the wealthy could ever hope to run a popular website. :rolleyes:

    It really does go both ways! -- If it were not for the users, no site would be popular, but it were not for someone paying the dues, no user would have anywhere to visit.

    It's not free though, we pay our ISP for internet access

    If site owners don't think their site should be free, charge for access, good luck getting members
