To make a long story short, Ghostery is killing my Firefox performance and I'm not sure if I really need it. I already run NoScript, uBlock, and httpseverywhere. I know Ghostery blocks cookies which none of these others do, so would I be good if I swapped it for something like Privacy Badger?
It does everything ghostery does, and much more, while being much, much lighter.
Also, ghostery only blocks shit through a black list. A properly set up uMatrix only allows shit through a white list, and blocks third party connections, cookies, css, images, plugins, scripts, ajax calls and frames unless you white list them. Per site.
>>33451 Then what's the point? I'm lazy, alright. Jesus, I can't see every fucking tracker that's on a webpage.
>>33455 Already use most of those things, though I use Peerblock rather than outright modifying my hosts file, and I have a separate browser profile specifically for sites I need to allow trackers for that I don't use day to day. I used to have a modified hosts file, but it caused more problems for me than it solved.
By default umatrix allows 1st party links to work, this is probly why you think it didnt block anything. Youll have to go in to the config and add * * * block To deny everything and worth as a whitelist for everything else.
