You should add Ublock origin, since it is from the original dev..

Voted NoScript

Use Adblock Plus in coordination with Ghostery.

I'll go with NoScript. It's a safer way to run Firefox and SeaMonkey. Especially should be run by SeaMonkey users including myself, since SeaMonkey doesn't get all the security updates that Firefox gets. Also, a must to have NoScript or disable JavaScript altogether, if you have to run a no longer supported version of Firefox or SeaMonkey on an old operating system, such as Slackware 13.0.

Tough choice since I use a few of these (uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger and NoScript) so I voted NoScript since it's my first line of defence in the browser.

NoScript - it's not only a privacy solution, it's also a great tool against browser exploitation and for removing various annoyances from web sites.

Does adblock qualify as a privacy solution? In fact adblock the tor project does not recommend to use it increases your fingerprint and it will be easier for the other actors to track you (your browser response will differ from all others). Even though adblock increases the browsing experience, it really isn't a privacy solution! I do not think that adblock should be on the list, not comparable to HTTPS Everywhere or No Script, not to say to the tor bundle or gnuPG.

You can use adblock to block certain types of tracking, like Google Analytics, which is still related to privacy.

But that's why it's a vote. If you feel other programs provide a better solution, feel free to vote for it.
