    Occasionally I get this message when using AdBlock and I want to k now if it's real? Considering it's free, I actually don't mind donating a little bit because of how effective it is, but I just don't want to be scammed.

    Yes, I realize it's not to buy. But the fact I've been using it for years for free, I don't mind sending something their way, as long as it's for real. With that being said, is unblock origin something you recommend over AdBlock? So far I've been pretty happy with AdBlock.

    uBlock is better in my experience. AdBlock sold out.
