These lists are maintained by Fanboy, MonztA, and Khrin.

EasyList

The goal of this repository is to block ads on English and International sites. By blocking the following:

  • Ad scripts (Generic and site-specific)
  • Cosmetic filtering (Generic and site-specific css)
  • Ad servers (Block servers that host ads/ad-related contents)
  • Prevent popups/popunders (Block scripts or domains that cause popups/popunders/ad notifications)

Anti-adblock in Easylist will cover cosmetic and generic blocks checks:

  • Prevent adblock users showing a website
  • Create elements to disrupt viewing a website

For legal reasons, Anti-adblock this will only cover:

  • Adult websites
  • File or Link hosting/sharing
  • Streaming/Torrent/Comic sites
  • Any historical anti-adblock rules

EasyPrivacy

The goal of this repository is to block tracking and improve end user privacy. By blocking the following:

  • Analytics
  • Telemetry
  • Tracking cookies
  • Pixels
  • Referrers
  • Beacons
  • Fingerprinting
  • Impressions/Event/Perf/Pageview logging
  • User agent monitoring
  • Resource Miners
  • Hit Counters
  • CNAME trackers
  • Linking to other 3rd-party tracking servers
  • Some unnecessary 3rd-party scripts/images

When a site is attempting to track, it'll be put into one of 4 categories.

  • Generic blocks (common url/tracking filter patterns) used by 1st/3rd-parties.
  • 1st-party tracking. Self hosted trackers and CNAME trackers.
  • 3rd-party tracking. Hosted by another provider, which hosts a tracking script, but not actually a tracking company.
  • Tracking-servers. Where the server has only one purpose to track/analyze user, will be blocked at the url level.

List Issues

Filter issues can be raised via Email, via Forum, or via Github. Accountability & responsibility remain with the list authors and not with extensions and/or web browsers.

Attempt fix website false-positives where applicable such as:

  • Website Breakages
  • Allow direct link fixes.
  • Web page rendering issues

For any issues or questions, create a ticket: Github.
