Hi, simple question:
Days ago Gorhill mentioned he will prefer UMatrix for mobiles.
I am comfortable and can handle both, UMatrix and UBlock.
But, I don’t care at all about things like “hosts files”, “cosmetic filtering”, “popup blocker”, “zapper/picker element” etc etc etc.
I do care about RAM, system performance, firewall functions etc.
In this context, is there any reason to prefer UBlock rather than UMatrix?
I read a lot of stuff, but it is still confusing me the pros & cons of UMatrix vs UBlock.
Considering that I am not interested in ad-blocking functions, or anti-malware, or cosmetics, or hosts files etc, and considering that I focus only in “firewall functions” and system performance… am I right in choosing UMatrix rather than UBlock?
I understand that UBlock is more suitable for most of the users.
However, in my ignorance, a firewall function is many time better than any host file or cosmetic filtering etc. And the UMatrix friendly granular control avoids webpage breaking. I can block almost all the garbage with UMatrix without breaking pages. Why someone will prefer UBlock (less friendly granular control) with tons of hosts lists, filters etc, rather than a clean simple friendly strong firewall?
But Gorhill in the past two years seemed to be so passionate with UBlock, always arguing in favor of UBlock etc, that I have the feeling that I am missing something.
Every-time someone try to explain why to prefer UMatrix, Gorhill appears saying that the same could be done with UBlock in a kind of better and more efficient way. I can’t see that! What am I missing? Why to use UBlock rather than UMatrix? Which one is less system resources consumer?
