Well… shit. This is one of the addons I install on every firefox profile I use. Hope the current version works for a while longer. Nevertheless, many thanks to gorhill for creating this!

I use uBlock Origin and I didn’t even know uMatrix existed.

How were people using this advanced approach to blocking unwanted site features? blocking autoload video servers or something?

It is absolutely amazing, it can block more and you get to block things with a more fine grain approach

it can block more

Even if you use ublock in hard mode?

I thought that umatrix was able to block more like cookies. I’ll need an alternative. Or a way to do all that with ublock.

I have ublockOr in hard mode and umatrix still blocks things ublockOr cant. Also umatrix can get around some stuff like some newspaper limits and some blockadblock things.

I learned ubo just by using it, but the “i see you are using an adblocker” always is a javascript thing so I have javascript disabled by default

The comment from the developer heavily implied that it was because he was fed up with invalid issues (which I took to mean issues with websites that wasn’t because of a problem with uMatrix). So unfortunately, perhaps the community was at least partly to blame for this :(
