Privacy Solution of the Year


A new category two years ago and the results have been very close both years. What is your favorite privacy solution?

Again there are several choices here, I could have picked. I went with Tor though, since I know it best and have used it a lot.

Voted NoScript, but I use several on this list. Sorry to see KeePass or KeePassX wasn't included.

Can you add: ScriptBlock? https://github.com/compvid30/scriptblock

NoScript would be my next in-line but am using Google Chrome (Unstable) (ie to date: Version 57.0.2950.4 (Official Build) dev (64-bit)) more than anything these days... thanks.

I would have liked to have also chosen uBlock Origin, but in the end went with VeraCrypt. Without much fuss, it has successfully and smoothly taken over the mantle from (and improved on) TrueCrypt.

:-) That appears to include console setups for x86 and x64 in addition to GUI setups for both. If you wish, for example, purely to install the x64 console setup, we're talking 3.5 MiB. I personally don't consider that excessive for the functionality it has.

Concerning Ublock / Ublock Origin:

Is it ok with everyone that we are supporting the money grabbing asshole behind Ublock.org that hasn't updated their code in 2 years?

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock

Quote:
BEWARE! uBlock Origin is COMPLETELY UNRELATED to the web site ublock.org**

The donations sought by the individual behind ublock.org ("to keeps uBlock development possible", a misrepresentation) are not benefiting any of those who contributed most to create uBlock Origin (developers, translators, and all those who put efforts in opening detailed issues). For the differences between uBlock Origin and uBlock, see the unbiased Wikipedia article.
I suggest removing "Ublock" permanently and only having "Ublock origin" listed.

Also, a reminder to anyone using Ublock - it hasn't been supported in two years. Stop using it and use Ublock Origin @ https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock

While it's possible that we'll remove uBlock in the future as it's not maintained, please remember that personal attacks and that kind of language aren't appropriate here at LQ.

While I use both uBlock Origin and HTTPS Everywhere, my vote goes to the former. I would really hate browsing the web without it!
