Hey Guys/Gals!...... In the 'Settings' Options Directory, which of these should I place a check-mark to?

1) Hide placeholders of blocked elements
2) Show the number of blocked requests on the icon
3) Make use of context menu where appropriate
4) Disable tooltips
5) Color-blind friendly
6) Enable cloud storage support


7) Disable pre-fetching (to prevent any connection for blocked network requests)
8) Disable hyperlink auditing Prevent WebRTC from leaking local IP addresses Block CSP reports Default behavior
9) These default behaviors can be overridden on a per-site basis
10) Disable cosmetic filtering
11) Block Media Elements larger than 40kb
12) Block Remote Fonts
13) Block CSP Reports

Every check slows you down. Leave defaults.

If unchecked you will see blank spaces where ads or other blocked content would have been. I leave it unchecked in order to maintain page layout. It does not make any functional difference.

I check that just to get a sense of how "blocked" any given page is. Eg., if some function of the site is not working and the number of blocked items is large, I might presume the lack of function to be attributable to a blocked script.

This very page at BITOG indicates "7" elements are blocked for me.

I check this so when there is something on a page that I want blocked I can simply right click that element and block it.

I leave unchecked for the once in a blue moon I care about the content of a tooltip. Tooltips are really not invasive.

I leave unchecked to maintain the site's aesthetic intention.

This will back up your settings to a cloud storage account. I don't bother.

I leave this unchecked because pre-fetching data can speed up navigation sometimes. Having a site that knows who you are pre-fetching data may avail some of your information to the parties from whom the data is being fetched, however.

I check this; as someone who from time to time has to be intentionally vague about my whereabouts in order to gain access to U.S.-only content.

This is probably harmless to check and one day you may want to treat one site differently than some others.

I am a web developer and it irks me that people can mess with my layouts and designs. This really does not play into privacy but *might* save you some bandwidth; with bandwidth being the last thing most people in the industrialized world ever have to worry about.

Originally Posted By: Triple_Se7en

Again, mostly to save bandwidth. I would expect a majority of these elements to be media.

Remote fonts do not take up much bandwidth and present zero security or privacy risk. If anyone chose to use a remote font it is because they feel that font is integral to the look-and-feel of their site. I like to respect that.

I don't check this. https://www.ghacks.net/2017/10/19/ublock-criticized-for-blocking-csp/
