Now that uMatrix is "dead", I use Privacy Badger in all supported browsers instead. But I really miss the fine controls.

Startpage usually.

No script and hosts files were just a hassle. Life is short.

uBlock Origin can be used in expert mode and is almost as good as uMatrix then.

NoScript is usually used in tandem with an Ad blocker.

NoScript (speeding up WWW) AND Privacy Badger (privacy) AND Ublock Origin (getting rid of ads.)
