Do not track does not make any difference on uBO functioning properly.
About switching to Edge - it has some nice features but it is some ways behind Chrome and Firefox and it is likely that when it finally catches up to their current state then FF and Chrome will once again be better in something else.
Disabling 3rd party scripts is an overkill, it will break almost every site, blocking frames is enough.
I recommend uBO because it is faster than ABP and offers more functions (like selectively blocking scripts, images and frames right from its GUI without the need to create specific filters) and it is not owned by an ad company lol
I think that default settings are *generally* the best since they were preselected by the dev and I assume that he knows the filter lists better than we both do and has decided that the ones that are checked by default offer best perf / adblock effectiveness ratio possible.
I have already tried Edge and it lacks basic features like non-crappy text downsampling (just try opening a bunch of random websites on chrome and edge simultaneously and compare them, you'll notice that text looks jagged in Edge)
Stability ( it crashed on my computer every now and then and loaded certain parts of websites like videos slower than chrome )
and general compliance with modern web standards.
Not to mention that I can't open uBO GUI on Edge properly and it crashes, but I am not sure if it's not uBO dev's fault.
But I would bet that it's not.
Really, the only noticeable thing that Edge is better at compared to Chrome is its GUI, it looks very neat. But if you can't stand that ugly shining toolbar on top of Chrome (me neither) then apply this theme, it is dark and looks nice. | https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/material-incognito-dark-t/ahifcnpnjgbadkjdhagpfjfkmlapfoel |
