Not only is it a better adblocker (blocks more ads), it is also much leaner on resources. I don't have the link anymore, but out of ~8 adblockers, Ublock Origin led to faster load times & lower resource usage in all but (I think) one metric. Anyone have that link?

I've never noticed ads on my new tab page and I run the newest version of Firefox everyday. Am I just not seeing this, or something?

They started going for a locked down system that is when I stopped using them.

I'm not particularly happy about the new tab ads but they are implemented in a decent way (the ads can't track you). You can also turn then off pretty easily.

But uBlock Origin is available for Chrome as well.

No, it's not the one I was thinking of but still pretty cool.
