you should use uBo (ublock origin) for sites like healthline.com or wnd.com

Why is this? Do Ad Block and ABP no longer block ads?

ab / abp are still blocking ads but are not equipped (...at the moment) to deal with a lot of new techniques using inline-javascript generating ads.

ok thank you.

So there is an update coming but do you know when? I don't like Ubo because it blocks a lot more than ads.

uBo is using filter lists (as any other adblocker). It does not block anything you'd want to keep.

If you are not interested in easyprivacy list just disable it (or any other list).

ABP - for example - does not enable by default easyprivacy which is very bad (easyprivacy contains all the necessary filters to fight the cryptojacking crap).

Yes, ABP plans (after ages) to add the strong weapon to deal with the inline-javascript code. But who knows how many months / years still needing .. ?
see https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3207

(AB is using ABP engine)
