>Newsflash: uBlock Origin is literally the best, and users who promote it are not shills.

Newsflash: Ad-blocking extensions are superfluous. You can block ads with your HOSTS file, and this is accomplished on an OS level with no additional demand for resources. You're literally just wasting RAM and CPU cycles with an ad-blocking extension. And you have to install additional extensions just to prevent sites from detecting your ad-blocker. I don't.

t. I've been using the HOSTS method for over 10 years. Don't bother trying to convince me that it isn't as effective as your AdBlock or uBlock.

>> No.53345560

Hosts method is good and I'm using it on Android with AdAway.

By not using a dedicated adblock extension in your desktop browser, however, you're missing out on:
-element hiding with element picker
-easy filter adding, updating and editing
-on/off switch for certain websites for allowing ads (I'm not advocating this) and unbreaking pages that won't work with ads blocked
-other options that you may use rarely, but are good to have

>> No.53345666

>element hiding with element picker
Why would you need to nuke anything except the ads? If you're referring to annoying JS elements like Wikipedia's donation banners, you should already be using NoScript for shit like that.

>easy filter adding, updating and editing
I update my HOSTS file about every six months. Anything more frequent than that is both unmerited and autistic.

>on/off switch for certain websites for allowing ads
lol, no

>other options that you may use rarely, but are good to have
Such as? You can't very well list this as a merit if you don't even know what these features are.

I keep my browser's memory usage firmly around the 200 MB mark. I seriously doubt there's anything uBlock can do to improve upon my browsing experience that would justify a performance blow.

Yes it is, you fucking jackass. Sites don't nag me or refuse me access for blocking ads because they have no way to detect it. At best, they can show me some block of text or a small image that's actually layered under the ad in case the ad fails to load for some reason.

The first was just a panic-release to get rid of 2.90 basically.
2.92 contains code to check for, and remove, the malware if present.

So regardless of if you're on 2.90 or 2.91 you should definitely update to 2.92 just to be safe.

I checked in activity monitor and through all my files. No kernel_service popped up. Kind of wary to download something from them again. Their changelog on the website said that trashing the app was okay.

By how the news outlets are writing it makes it seems like some put in a malicious commit. But reading further it appears that someone got access CDN.

>Kind of wary to download something from them again

It's fine. Even if the attackers wanted to (and had access to) tampering with yet another DMG there is no chance in hell they would already have had time to do so.

Also you'll notice that the download is now both HTTPS and from Transmission directly; no CDN or anything.


>> No.53349860


You could also download and install 2.84 and update straight to 2.92, as updates weren't affected - only clean installs from the site were.
The updater will refuse to download/apply the update if it doesn't match what's expected.

But the difference is they didn't do it and they had no malicious intend - just shitty security.

µTorrent on the other hand will do everything they can to serve you adware, spyware, bitcoin miners and whatnot and they do it it intentionally.

Pardon, but I would simply like to interject for one second. What you're calling Linux, is really, GNU/Linux, or as I simply the other day began to call it, GNU + Linux. Linux isn't an OS on its own, but actually another free part of a completely operational GNU setup fashioned into something proper by the GNU core libraries, terminal facilities and essential setup components fulfilling a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Quite a few computer possesors operate a subspecies of the original setup regularly, but do not know of. Because of a strange happenstance, the edition of GNU that is being being broadly utilized now is often called "Linux", and a substantial number of its possesors do not know that it is practically the GNU setup, created by GNU.

There is in actuality a Linux, and they do have it installed, but it is simply a part of the setup they use. Linux is the core: the part of the setup that distributes the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The core is a necessary part of an OS, but relies on the rest of the setup; it will work only in the shadow of a whole OS. Linux is most commonly utilized with the GNU OS: the whole setup is practically GNU with the addition of Linux, or GNU/Linux. Every single-called "Linux" distros are really distros of GNU/Linux.
