TrackMeNot "hides users' actual search trails in a cloud of 'ghost' queries, significantly increasing the difficulty of aggregating such data into accurate or identifying user profiles."

So, instead of trying to block ads and risk creating a unique blocking profile that can be fingerprinted by surveillance software, TMN hides your searches among randomly generated searches of its own.

Also works with @AdNauseam, which hides user profiles on actual, real-user searches by clicking all or most ads on a page, according to the FAQ on Github.

Using this combo seems to be faster than ublock origin - or at least feels that way.
