uBlock Origin Legacy vs uBlock origin 1.17.4 - Which is better for Roytam1's browser builds?

Recommended Posts

Hi, all, I remember topic was often covered in builds megathread, but I decided to make dedicated one to save myself hours of scrolling ;)

I'm still using uBo 1.17.4 with Basilisk 52 XPMOD from Roytam since 'forever', and I'm wondering whether it will be beneficial for me to switch to uBlock Origin firefox-legacy-1.16.4.20

What makes me doubt are numbers - 1.16 <1.17, and  backtracking changelog to find what is what is quite a time-consuming task.

Or maybe I should go with some 1.18 or higher version of uBo, since AFAIR Roytam keeps support of WebExtensions in Basilisk, which official branch is going away from?

Apparently UBO 1.74 isn't being supported any more, whereas UBO 1.16 is, specifically for legacy browsers.
See here and the subsequent posts.
I use 1.16 now and it seems to work fine and auto-updates.
:yes:

Looks like Legacy will suite my needs better. Thanks.

The main difference I see is uBO 1.17.4 has javascript blocking. So I think 1.16 is enough if using Noscript at the same time.
