"The main difference between uBlock and uMatrix is that uBlock uses pattern-based filtering while uMatrix matrix-based filtering which gives you more control over the filtering process....In comparison to NoScript, it is offering finer controls when it comes to content types to block. While NoScript does support custom site exclusions, it is not as easy to setup, and as far as RequestPolicy is concerned, it is more of a allow or deny type of program with little granularity.

The extension works like a firewall basically that gives you control over what is loaded when you connect to web pages in the browser.'

I haven't used uMatrix, but found that info at: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/05/...

Firefox is still the greatest browser, and if new features bother you too much, it's always dead easy to disable them. You only have to do it once per install. about:config Disable Firefox Hello loop.enabled = false Disable Pocket browser.pocket.enabled = flase Disable One-Click Search Bar (revert to old search) browser.search.showOneOffButtons = false Enable Firefox Tracking Protection (Disconnect) privacy.trackingprotection.enabled = true

...2...1...Takedown! Corporations are totally out of touch with the streets. Nintendo is taking down all kinds of free fan marketing. They swatted one of Happy Console Gamer's videos that was basically a love-letter to the new Nintendo games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?... It's ironic and infuriating. I hate all of the big three for these reasons. They'll pay for this stance in the long term. They're already going down the drain fast now, and soon they'll probably just be another poorly maintained IP for some other shit company to purchase.

Before accepting that a 5 year old not only passed the exam, but could read and comprehend at a fully adult level, I have another hypothesis: the dad did it... He obviously made the kid's website, so why would it surprise anyone if he "helped" the kid through the test. It's the same way that kids used to win slot-racing competitions.

Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. - Isaac Asimov
