How is Better different?
- Blocks tracking scripts, tracking pixels, and behavioural advertising.
- Uses a unique, hand-curated, and open tracker database. Browse the encyclopaedia-like tracker entries on their web site if you fancy learning more.
- Identify and block the most prevalent trackers. This makes Better’s block list lightweight and effective.
- Blocking decisions based on the principles of the Ethical Design Manifesto.
- Open, transparent, and free as in freedom.
- Improves the readability of popular web sites.
- Spotlights the worst offenders… Did you know that the worst site we found on the web had 172 trackers? Better blocks them all and makes that site 4× lighter and 15.8× faster!
- Blocks blocker blockers (try saying that quickly a few times!) Whenever we can, we try to protect you from sites that try to put you at risk by forcing you to turn off your privacy tools.
- Do Not Block list enables you to turn Better off for sites that don’t play well with Better. Easily contact us about those sites so we can fix the experience for everyone.
