The difference between the uBlock and uBlock Origin #firefox #chrome #chromium

In Firefox and Chrome, there is a great extension called uBlock.

This is an ad blocking add-on alternative to Adblock Plus or Adblock Edge.

The uBlock it has two different versions.

What the difference between the two?

First, the original uBlock developers consider the continued development and support, he has transferred its rights to one team.

However, the team (actually one person Chris Aljoudi is) has attracted money by using the code of others claiming a donation.

And they argue that there was a great achievement by the code has been assigned to them. Actually in spite of only to periodically update the filter script that made the others.

The original developers seems to have questioned that point.

Automatic updating of the filter configuration file appears to be seemingly convenient. However, filter settings that have already been established to some extent does not need to be updated every day.

That solicit donations using the filter script that made the uBlock and others who made the others, might look like they are making money in unfair means.

It is why, it seems the original developers have published uBlock Origin as to continue their own development.

In Firefox, it seems Alex Vallat is to publish the add-on. I do not know whether he is related to the direct uproar.

The first place uBlock was developed as Chrome for extension.

Initially Adblock also was not especially those tangled money.

a result of the rights are transferred to somewhere, only specific ad in Adblock Plus came to be forgiven.

And, advertising companies were allowed from Adblock became clear that that was providing funds to Adblock.

That for the developed in the sense of protest it was Adblock Edge. I remember that.

Since uBlock was made, the Adblock Edge was finished the role, and had been declared the development end.

uBlock has not yet is also the major release.

That is happening is already a similar uproar, I have a little concern.

I decided to use the uBlock Origin.
