    A few months back we reported that uBlock Origin was coming to Microsoft Edge. The popular alternative to Ad Block and Ad Block Plus used less CPU and memory and was ported by Nik Rolls as an open source side project.

    During its development uBlock Origin for Edge was a GitHub project where users had to sideload the extension. This task required manual updates and a constant re-enabling making the extension a lot of work for users. Microsoft later contacted Nik about bringing it to the Store officially and with their assistance the project has finally reached its goal.

    Thanks for posting that. I just installed it. In the next days we will see how good this extension really is. The first impression is really good though. uBlock origin offers much more options and lists to subscribe to than Adblock.

    That's great, but it won't be my default browser until it syncs to all my devices, not just Windows devices.
