You're not alone...

Content blocking on an internet-surfing device is as crucial to me as seat belt use. I don't feel guilty at all about "safe hex"...

I've also posted these other Firefox and Chrome extensions before - these are all cross-platform, meaning that they work on Windows, Linux and Mac desktop operating systems, and everyone should be using them, IMHO:

HTTPS Everywhere (ensures secure HTTPS connections where available automatically):

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/https-everywhere/gcbommkclmclpchllfjekcdonpmejbdp?hl=en

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/https-everywhere/

Decentraleyes (Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery like Taboola and Outbrain "sponsored content"):

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/decentraleyes/ldpochfccmkkmhdbclfhpagapcfdljkj

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/decentraleyes/
