Ghostery blocks Disqus by default. If you want to see comments, you have to click like five things.

It's awesome.

I do have ghostery, but I think I have Disqus allowed. I might have to fix that.

The only time I regret allowing Ghostery to run in Brutalist mode is when it straight-up keeps a page from loading. Then I pause it and see if it fixes it, and often resort to Safari because for some reason Chrome just keeps sucking harder and harder.

(kleinbl00 realizes that he no longer needs to run mod tools, and can therefore maybe try Opera or some other non-parasitic browser, and feels a great weight off his shoulders)

I have some people whose content I will watch ads to support, and I disable it for those people and white-list them on AB.

I've never tried Opera, what's the advantage? aside from no Chrome bloatware?

insomniasexx has tried a couple times to talk me into it. I'll give her the option.
