- HTTPS Everywhere
- AdBlock Plus
- Privacy Badger
- Self-destructing cookies
However, aren't uBlock, Ghostery, AdBlock, Disconnect and Privacy Badger the same thing: Add-ons that block calls to unwanted servers (ads, trackers, etc.)?
I don't want to use more add-ons than necessary, so I'd prefer to choose just one if they all do the same thing. (Which one to choose is not part of the question.)
(I realise that they may have different block lists, but I'm asking of the functionality they provide are essentially the same: Blocking calls to unwanted servers.)
If they actually differ significantly in functionality, please explain specifically what they do and what makes them so different that I can truly benefit from using several of them.
