When deciding to participate, please post a picture of your blocked trackers list (like the pic below) and if you can specify these 3 details:
Here goes mine:
AddThis on the top!
1. I'm using Canary channel
2. tracking prevention has been turned on for only 24 hours (yesterday reinstalled my Windows insider)
3. I've only been using Balanced mode.
1400 trackers in 24 hours! 70% of those websites listed up there I never even visited!
now Who's next ^^

Hey there! Nice survey.
90% of those websites never visited (especially Facebook - even do not have account ). Sometimes I clear data for comparison.

Nice results indeed!
It's interesting that "Addthis" is not in your top 10 list of the trackers, but Google is at top.
Facebook yeah xD it's everywhere.

I posted this info in another thread over Here this past Wednesday ...
I've been using this on "Strict mode" since day one when it was first available a/b..
Version 79.0.294.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
I get amazed as to what gets blocked, especially since I've never visited most of what is listed in the blocked trackers section... see below photos... in order from top of page to bottom.. sooo many sites blocked...
That's a lot of trackers and there are a total of 5 sites on this list that I have been on...
AddThis I use to post from one website to facebook
Publishers Clearing House
The rest of them, I've not been on...
Tracking Prevention is Working!
Todays numbers are Tracking prevention blocked 7,082 trackers

My results are with both Ghostery (all options On) and Adguard (almost everything enabled except 3-4 options (mostly concerning Web RTC, which if enabled do completely break sites)). So I think it is not good idea to switch off uBlock and stay only with embedded strict rules alone

Edge insider has the same WebRTC local IP leak prevention in it in the flags
Here is the ublock origins settings that I have been using for a long time and they are non breaking
using all of the filters as well, without slowing down my computer or any bad side effects :)

Thanks a lot! before I tried to locate same option in Edge but surely overlooked it somehow. In other browsers there is absolutely same setting. And yes, in ublock if this setting enabled all goes smoothly. But in Adguard WebRTC if enabled break sites. At least for me. I also use ublock with other browsers. But decided to give a chance for Adguard on Edge. Again thanks for pointing me this setting :handshake:.

1. I'm using Edge Canary
2. I've been using tracking prevention since it came out. It's been a while but I haven't really used Edge much.
3. I'm using balanced mode
I really need to use Edge more! I use Nano Defender by the way. I don't know if it'd impact the blocked trackers list :\
HA! Techcommunity auto-saved my reply! :D
