Finally, an efficient blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.
What is uBlock Origin?
uBlock Origin is an add-on for Edge that serves as an efficient blocker with diverse filter lists. It comes ready with a selection of filters like EasyList, Peter Lowe’s Ad server list, and others for immediate protection. You also have the freedom to add more filters as per your preference, ensuring a smoother browsing experience. Apart from being an ad blocker, it can read and create filters from hosts files. It's a user-friendly, open-sourced tool designed to be effective while using minimal system resources.
An efficient blocker: Fast, potent and lean, and yet can load and enforce thousands more filters than other popular blockers out there.
