An efficient blocker add-on for various browsers. Fast, potent, and lean.
uBlock Origin is NOT an "ad blocker": it is a wide-spectrum blocker -- which happens to be able to function as a mere "ad blocker". The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites -- through EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Peter Lowe’s ad/tracking/malware servers, Online Malicious URL Blocklist, and uBlock Origin's own filter lists.
As you browse the internet, sites you visit can attempt to take screenshots of your computer as a pixel-by-pixel unique digital "fingerprint" of you & and your devices. This is called canvas fingerprinting. This can risk your privacy, even if you're browsing anonymously, e.g. from behind a VPN or using the Tor network.
Canvas defender is a Firefox addon that tries to defeat such tracking by adding random noise to your the screen capture. This has no effect on your online experience. This addon is different to others, in that it does not attempt to block the fingerprinting altogether, but rather to confuse it.
Instead of completely blocking canvas fingerprinting, Canvas Defender add-on creates a unique and persistent noise that hides your real canvas fingerprint. This add-on protects you while browsing both in normal and private mode.
Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.
The EU regulations require that every website must get user's permission before installing cookies. Imagine how irritating that becomes when you surf anonymously or if you delete cookies automatically every time you close the browser.
Makes every page (or only pages that you want) to have light text on dark background. Exact colors are customizable.
