Users of the uBlock Origin browser extension for content filtering are a passionate bunch. When we tell them Orion allows them to run uBlock in a WebKit-based browser on macOS, some have cried. But, they've assured us these are tears of joy!
Orion's built-in blocker is about 90% as efficient as uBlock Origin using default settings. But, our built-in blocker is faster. We designed it to be a great choice for most users.
For power users who want that last 10% with uBlock, we recommend disabling Orion's content blocker globally. Running both Orion blocking and uBlock may cause interference with each other.
To disable Orion's content blocking:
- In Orion, click the Orion menu and choose Preferences.
- Click the Websites tab.
- Click Content Blockers in the list of options.
- Set "Default settings for all websites" to Off.
We recommend leaving Orion's tracking protection on. It uses WebKit's machine-learning-based technology and complements uBlock Origin to provide the best overall protection.
