Like someone said there is a learning curve - but not steep at all if you are keen to take what is on offer (lots)! Good for monitoring, good for blocking especially when you may be looking at banking, etc. Choosing the base configuration may require a little time and trial, including deleting all default rules(!). Will the blocking assets accept ABP format block lists? If not, then it might be worthwhile!? Thank you. Regards. PS: is there an indicator for phishing site on the panel?

It's great for advanced users, for the time being. The project is no longer being developed (since 2021) and the Github repository has been archived. It will probably, mostly, continue to work for years. Probably. Apparently you can get some support from uBlock github site, I have no knowledge on the details of this.

Quite the absolutely best security addon for Chrome, or Edge. Nothing is better. A full in-browser firewall.

It's very good but it also creates web problems that block pages. It's not user friendly.

WOW! For years I've had to tolerate all the GARBAGE Fox News loads on its web pages. With this extension, I was able to eliminate all the parts I DON'T want to see. So no more ads. A lot less images. Just the story and the comments. That's it! The extension is a little complex at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's VERY cool. (And like most people, I didn't read the documentation - so if it was "complex", it could be mostly my own fault!) One thing I'd recommend is a "quick ... Show more

Humbly stating I provide super geek services, I red/blue team, audit and certify HIPAA/HITECH, PCI-DSS 3.2, and SOC II type2. I use three tracker/adblockers. Ublock origin, NoScript, and uMatrix. Ublock doesn't provide a clear interface for exactly what blocking is occurring in the background, while it does provide an interface to show you what sites were pinged, I frequently find I am required to disable it, before the functionality of a website works correctly. No Script is much more simpl... Show more

Learning curve is a bit steep, but it seems like amazing tool so far.

A great security app, but a real pain at times. Every time I go a site for the first time I have to make sure I turn off either specific elements or uMatrix as a whole if I trust it, then save it. I also find it's a little too "trigger happy" when I click on a link from an email or site I trust. Case in point, if I have a link to a tracking site regarding an order, if I click the link uMatrix will block it. I have to go into my settings, turn off uMatrix, click the link to track my order the... Show more
