Public Service Announcement:

"uBlock Origin" and "uBlock" are two different privacy plugins for web browsers.

✅ uBlock Origin is the one recommends

❌ uBlock is NOT recommended

p.s. recommends installing both uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger ( alongside each other.

#uBlockOrigin #uBlock #µBlock #Privacy #AdBlocking

Apparently uBlock hasn't been maintained as consistently as uBlock Origin (presumably because uBlock Origin is the original project led by the original developer).
