Anti Advertiser Alternatives for Google Chrome

Submitted by zombie_berkman in AntiAdvertiserAction

Google Chrome : Mozilla Firefox https://www.mozilla.org/ and GNU Icecat https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

I think everyone know what Firefox is so i will skip that. From Icecat's page, GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license imposes requirements for the distribution of modified versions that make it inconvenient to exercise freedom 3.

Recommended plugs: uBlock Origin https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ and NoScript https://noscript.net/

uBlock Origin is an adblocker that prevents various ads, tracking elements, and pretty much whatever you want from loading. Please note that you want uBlock Origin, not regular uBlock

NoScipt is a plugin that prevents and can whitelist/blacklist various things like javascript, java, flash, etc from loading. Please not that when you first install this, it will be an extreme pain in the ass and everything will be broken.
