- by Firefox user 14491390, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Sorry in advance, this is more a reply than a review and I guess reviews are not for discussion, but does user 8562d0 realise that Ublock Origin is GPL and that AdNauseam does acknowledge it uses it as a foundation and is also GPL? "Ripoff" is not really a thing in this context.
And as for dismissing AdNauseam based on reading studies about the effectiveness of data obfuscation, this extension’s authors actually write this kind of studies, so surely they have some idea of what they’re doing.

Otherwise, it is a very good initiative that I fully support!
- by Firefox user 14333591, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5First let me say, I LOVE this extension. Any computer I get my hands on, mine or not, gets AdNauseam installed on it. I recommend it to everyone I know, and have the chrome version ready to go at a moment's notice, despite not even using chrome.
My ONLY qualm is not with the philosophy of AdNauseam, which I completely ascribe to, or any of the behavior it normally displays.
However, sometimes the filter lists require updating, but they NEVER get updated. I can wait for an hour and nothing will happen, and there's no indication of how long it will take for it to finish. What's worse is that a page refresh seems to stop the updating of the filter list s altogether, and set me back to where I started. Even changing the process priority to -20 does nothing. The only success I've had with remedying this problem is removing and reinstalling.
I only wish there were more information about this problem other than that it takes a lot of CPU to update the lists.
