- Minus: a very few ads are getting through, such as LinkedIn ads.
- Plus: It has a setting to disable auto-play media, which actually works!
- Minus: there's a bug where it freezes on address bar autocomplete, marked as "WON'T FIX (if I understand correctly, the current version will be replaced)
That last issue might be a dealbreaker for average users.
Only minor negative I've found is that it indicates a tab is playing sound even when it's only showing video (no audio).
