I read about what the different filters do, but I want to know more.
EasyPrivacy - Protecction of privary (In which way? Does it keep all sites from tracking me?)
Fanoy's Annoyance - Removes irritations on the internet (What exactly does it do? What does it remove?)

    Hi Niels,

    EasyPrivacy blocks various tracking scripts, such as Google Analytics. The Fanboy's Annoyances filter list blocks social media buttons, popups, and other site-specific annoyances.

    You can find more details about many of the filter lists AdBlock uses on EasyList's website.
