I don't understand Adblock Edge. Why use a fork of an old version of Adblock Plus with "acceptable ads" disabled instead of just disabling them yourself in the original (and continuously updated) product?

Are there any changes besides the preconfigured disabling of Adblock's whitelist?

TBH I couldn't figure out which of the variants was the "right" one to use, I'm not part of whatever community might surround those tools. I forget what swayed me to Edge; I might have just flipped the fuckit bit and tried something.

Whichever one works is probably good enough.

Because obviously Adblock Plus sold out and is untrustworthy now. /s I use Adblock Plus, and I have the acceptable ads enabled and have no complaints.
