Why I use both uBlock Origin and uMatrix
Isn’t uMatrix an advanced version of uBlock Origin? What’s the rationale behind using both of them?
(Writing this has given me a new appreciation for the difference between the blocklist sources included in uMatrix and the filter lists included in uBlock Origin. The blocklists uMatrix uses just list hosts, because that's what uMatrix deals with. uBlock Origin's filter lists include all sorts of sophisticated matching rules to make HTML elements disappear, as well as some host lists. Having just checked it now, I believe that all of the default uMatrix hosts lists are also in uBlock Origin, although they may not all be enabled by default.)
