Ad Blocker - uBlock Origin

Overview

We configure Linux and Active Directory clients with the uBlock Origin ad blocker in Firefox and Chrome by default. Ad blockers filter out a significant amount of ad related noise on every page load. The result is a less cluttered, more responsive and privacy minded experience for the patron.

In rare situations the ad blocker may prevent some sites from working correctly. The solution is to have the patron disable uBlock for the problem site. It is a very simple process.
