I tried to raise money to get to Charlotte for SouthEast Linux Fest but such was not to be. I hope I can get there next year. The money raised will be donated to Linux Mint and in the name of...

uMatrix FTW!

Posted 05-31-2019 at 03:55 AM by ondoho

uMatrix has replaced at least 3 different addons (cookie control, noscript and request policy) and also offers adblocking (which i still take care of via /etc/hosts).
