Question about lists, merged lists

Post by VLM » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:34 pm

Greetings! This is my first post here. In https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/easylist-merges-with-fanboys-list.347225/, I read:

"he Easy team is very happy to announce today that both major ad blocking lists, EasyList and Fanboy's List, become one list! Also, EasyPrivacy and Fanboy's Tracking List were merged.

With this change all users will have a consistent Internet browsing experience and will no longer have to bother whether they have to choose EasyList or Fanboy's List or which one of them is better."

Seems perfectly clear. However, I just installed uBlock Origin (in Pale Moon), and in the Dashboard > 3rd-party filters, I see an entry called 'Fanboy+Easylist-Merged Ultimate List​​​​​​​​​' and another called 'Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List​​​​​​​​​'. jAlso appearing are Fanboy's Annoyance and Social Blocking lists; I seem to recall reading somewhere that these were combined or merged into another list.

Naturally, I would like to obtain good coverage while avoiding redundancy. I would appreciate someone clarifying which lists are really beneficial, and which are full or partial duplicates of another.

Thank you.

There are seperate lists I maintain not included in Easylist. If you're trying minimise duplicates then the Ultimate list by itself would be enough.

Thanks Fanboy, I really appreciate your making time to respond. Minimizing duplicates/redundancy is only one goal of course, good coverage is the other. I just don't know what is or is not incorporated into the Merge Ultimate List. For example, does it incorporate annoyances and social blocking?

Thanks, and have a great weekend!

Fanboy Ultimate List (This includes Easylist, Easyprivacy, Enhanced Trackers List and Annoyances List)

Blocks Adverts, Trackers and the Annoyances list, it may cause some false positives. If you have any problems report any issues to our Forums.

Thank you once again. The social blocking list is separate then?
