Is it finally happening?
>In other words, it's for poorfags with shit computers.
The ride never ends.
Not to mention it improves starting the browser considerably.
I don't have that shit, I have a 5 year old computer that was shit when I got it and I still don't have any goddamn issues with ABP and noscript.
You fucking assclown children need to shut your mouths.
>optimization is not important
It's not about optimization, it's about a featureset. If you want optimized, don't run Firefox or Chrome, use links. Oh wait, you won't, because barely anything works with it.
It is if it actually gains something or at least is absolutely equivalent.
What does this have on ABP? Can you do everything it does? No? Then what's the fucking point?
Are you all this goddamn stupid? Seriously?
>it's about a featureset
Yeah... about that... it actually offers more than ABP.
µBlock currently offers you more:
Extends the filter syntax.
Local mirroring (CDN caching), a currently experimental but promising feature.
Dynamic filtering, the ability to point-and-click to filter on/off script and iframe tags, on a 1st- or 3rd-party basis. I consider this to be a key feature of µBlock.
Element picker is more modern.
Let you select most common filter lists out of the box, without the need to import them first.
Supports hosts files (hostnames are translated into the equivalent of ||www.example.com^).
Ability to whitelist single web page, or a whole section of a web site.
Ability to not load cosmetic filters (saves lot of memory).
A log of the net requests showing allowed/blocked net requests, and which filter, if any, matched each net request.
A superior cache implementation.
Can parse hosts files.
>buttmad ABP shills
plebbit is the fucking worst in that regard. say any bad word against our lord and saviour ABP (in the same sentence mention ABE, doesn't matter) and your post is downboated to the seafloor
Maybe this is just some confirmation bias, but I just checked my ram usage on waterfox and it was about 250 MB on startup. Its never been that low before(I have always used adblock on all firefox/waterfox). I'll see how this addon lives up after a day's usage. Regular adblock uses about 900 MB of ram on long use. I'm hoping this will stay around 500mb.
While on the subject, is waterfox really that much better than firefox? I remember seeing comparisons and firefox came out on top in terms of speed, but that was three years ago.
it loads pages faster
mozilla has openly condemned ABP for the way they filter ads because it completely wrecks the way pages load and turns a multithreaded process into a singlethreaded process due to checking every single HTTP request. They found that ABP reduces page loadtime anywhere between 30%-300%.
The extensions themselves (upon loading) use very little memory.
ABP: 36.3 MB
uBlock: 7.09 MB
Then the difference is just atrocious. And to think ABP's developer (Palant) shot Raymond down and falsely talked shit about his proof of concept. Hilarious really.
And scroll down to see the response. This is what created uBlock.
>>what is a motherfucking hosts file you autists
>Do you not know where you are?
seriously, stop bloating your browsers with useless addons or at least dont use a shit ton of stuff mostly having the same functionality.
Why would you use an addon to block adds and use memory and then start bitching when you can avoid with a 100kb file on your system.
I wasn't siding with you, autist.
The hosts file does not provide the functionality that uBlock gives you. You cannot whitelist pages easily, you cannot apply cosmetic filters, you can't cache CDN providers, amongst other things. It'd just break a shitton of websites needlessly.
You're literally the only one with this problem. Are you sure you're not using e10s?
