    "I wanted an ad blocker so I grabbed HTTPS Everyone. It's a lot more than an ad blocker, though, which I really liked. There are lots of ad blockers, so this set this one apart from many others. I will continue to use and recommend it, especially since it works on multiple browsers."

    "I'd used AdBlock Plus for a few years, but didn't really like how it slowed my browser down. I switched to uBlock Origin a few months ago, and couldn't be happier with its performance. Goodbye, annoying ads; farewell, web trackers! Finally, uBlock Origin lets me surf the net in peace. "

    "This does adblock to some extent, but I certainly wouldn't use it over the other well known ones. In my opinion just go for Adblock Origin or Adblock+. Both work wonders, though I suggest the former of the two."
