SpectroBoy: what extension subby?


I've been using Cookie AutoDelete for a couple of years.
Gets around most paywalls, too.

It s a big deal subby.
Default settings/default functions ARE what sets the measure of what fall s out on the bell curve to be common or not.

Is default = is totally common
is not default = is seldom ever to be common at all


It's why the OS doing anti-virus/malicious software detection is critical to have and not that only those who can get to the side of the defaults bell curve wind up having that.

Like how the teen pregnancy rate is entierly different depending on what your culture's treatment of puberty, sex education and the  availability of prophylactics is.

Forget Me Not works well for me on FF.  Very unobtrusive, and it, too, seems to defeat most paywalls when scriptblockers won't.

Make the browser forget website data (like cookies, local storage, etc.), except for the data you want to keep by adding domains to a whitelist, graylist, blacklist, or redlist.


I also recommend uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and HTTPS Everywhere.

Do you find uBlock Origin to be better than Adblock Plus? Just curious.

If you can get Pi-Hole on your network, do it. It allows you to block a lot of your ads when you run into sites that are all "Hey, stop using an adblocker!" Works on everything on the network too, including phones if you run off of WiFi.

It consumes fewer resources while doing just as good a job.
