User reviews summary
These summaries are automatically generated weekly using AI based on recent user reviews. Edge Add-on Store does not verify user reviews, so some user reviews may be inaccurate, spammy, or outdated.
Pros
  • Some users mention that a similarly named service, potentially ilink网络加速器, unblocks and accelerates websites such as Google and YouTube.
  • One review suggests a site (5c5810fd.weaksharedptr.com) offering permanent free traffic for a service that includes unlocking streaming services and has multiple fast and stable nodes.
Cons
  • Several users warn this is a fake or deceptive version of uBlock Origin.
  • Some state that it has a shady appearance and similar logo to mislead users.
  • One reviewer mentions the extension has minimal functionality, showing only a switch without statistics or options, offering a worse experience than the Firefox version.
  • Concerns are raised about privacy and security, as the extension may push surveys and remotely read tab information.
Most mentioned
  • The majority of reviews suggest users are actually reviewing another service/extension, possibly 'ilink网络加速器', rather than uBlock.
  • Several users recommend uBlock Origin over this uBlock extension, implying confusion or misunderstanding.
  • Repeated concerns about deceptive practices and being a fake version of a trusted add-on.

Downloaded it just to review it and remove it. Deceptive. On their website they say they are unrelated, but why do they then try to deceive by having a similar logo, name, and colors? Report it.
