    Some of those add-ons (extensions) you mentioned are not yet available for Edge. They are in the process, and I believe I heard something about them becoming available in January or February, but don't hold me to that.

    So far, chrome sounds like the fastest browser, however some are concerned about its lack of privacy. I've stuck with edge myself, though not having adblock is annoying.

    These privacy complaints are really confusing to me. Most people, unless you are living completely off the grid in a cabin in the woods (and even then maybe) give up 10x more privacy information just in daily use.

    Do you have any of the following?

    * A "rewards" or "discount" card from any major retailer?
    * A Smartphone
    * A "toll card" for skipping toll booths automatically
    * Do you shop online?
    * Do you use online email?

    This is just a sample of ways that your privacy is mined by corporations, every day.

    And discussion of adblock tools is against the rules:
    13) No ad blocking discussions. This site depends on ads to pay for the costs of running and maintaining it.
