uBlock Origin (uBO)

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock
A wide-spectrum blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.

µBlock Origin (µBO, pronounced micro-block origin) is a wide-spectrum blocker for browsers with a simple point-and-click interface to allow users to filter and block server requests, domains, scripts, and more. By default it blocks ads, trackers and malware sites.

Users should note that uBlock Origin and uBlock, while they have some history, are now distinct programs whose code base has diverged form each other for some time, with uBlock Origin being the more actively developed and better maintained of the two.

Documentation

"uBlock" is prefered search term for most users which won't find "µBlock" (note the µ). Therefore we use "uBlock Origin" in the Name field.

The Debian package is: ublock-origin
