What's the best add blocker?
#1
Sometimes I get messages from sites asking me to enable my ad blocker. Currently, I use AdBlock. Is there a better free ad blocker, or one worth paying for?

I use uBlock Origin. Give it a try.

I'm assuming you meant disable your adblock and not enable? I ignore requests to disable my adblocker. Some sites won't let you view unless you disable it, but i think those sites aren't worth viewing anyway if they try and force ads on you. You could also use a browser like Brave that automatically blocks all ads and trackers for you.

Well, what I was trying to say is some site want me to disable my adblocker to view the video. I want an adblocker that tricks the site into believing it's disabled. Maybe by feeding the site fake data or something.

You can do that with a PiHole on an rpi zero: https://pi-hole.net/

even if the site does require you to turn it off you can block the site from being able acsess to JavaScript.
