    Ad block extension, what's a good one?

    I have been playing around with Ad blockers and some of them are better than others. Which ones are better than others? I have noticed when I look for a list of them they have stars for rating and then a number like (14) (5) etc. What do these numbers mean?
    Thanks

    Hey Steve, what's up? Yes I use Adblock Plus as well but I have seen it fail some ads. Like for example on Yahoo's home page it takes away the ad at the top of the website but the ones on the right side are always there blinking away. I am trying out Ghostery right now. I wonder if you put two ad blockers that they will not conflict with each other. I am also using Ninja Cookie for cookie banners for the first time today.

    I use uBlock Origin. Uses less resources than others, blocks more effectively and is more configurable especially if you have websites that you want to support by having ads appear.

    I also have Malwarebytes browser guard running alongside it in some browsers and it also blocks ads and does not interfere with uBlock or vise/versa/
    Don't believe everything you think.
