ADZbuzz fork of the famous uBlock. A multi-purpose blocker for the user, by the user.
What is ADZbuzz uBlock?
ADZbuzz uBlock is a memory-efficient and CPU-friendly chrome extension, designed for blocking ads and creating filters. Originating from the acclaimed uBlock Origin, it maintains a pleasing balance between user experience and publisher benefits. It features built-in filter lists and the capacity to synchronize with other lists for enhanced functionality. However, care must be taken to avoid adding too many filters to avoid potential website breakage.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: We acknowledge and will continue to do so, uBlock Origin, from which this blocker is forked from. ADZbuzz uBlock inherits the benefits of the uBlock Origin with a minor twist for ADZbuzz to be to utilize this tool to provide a win-win situation for content users and publishers alike.
Here's the detailed description quote from uBlock Origin which applies to this extension as well:
An efficient blocker: easy on memory and CPU footprint, and yet can load and enforce thousands more filters than other popular blockers out there.

Usage: The big power button in the popup is to permanently disable/enable uBlock Origin for the current web site. It applies to the current web site only, it is not a global power button.
Flexible, it's more than an "ad blocker": it can also read and create filters from hosts files.
Out of the box, these lists of filters are loaded and enforced:
