I believe OP is saying that, Facebook account or not, Facebook will grab your data off of any webpage that uses certain integrations (e.g., the “Like” button), in order to collect your user data. So, this extension seems like additional protection from Facebook’s predatory integrations into non-FB web pages.

True. I end up layering ublock and privacy badger just in case I really feel like breaking a site

what does privacy badger do, that ublock does not? I did not like privacy badger, because it says it "learns" based on your browsing history, which i assumed would be a liability rather than a benefit.

They cut out the "learning" part a few months back because, surprise, turns out that itself could be used for fingerprinting users.

Badger has a "yellow" setting where it won't accept cookies from a given domain but still allow connections. uBlock can't do that but uMatrix can.

Sorry lol I was making a sarcastic joke about how I have redundant plugins accumulated over the years

I see. Pretty nice then. Wonder if the Tor browser has something similar or if its just redundant at that point. Especially after using VPN too.
