Long story short, I wanted to use ublock for more control over ads showing up (to keep some on and turn some off). Then I noticed that it doesn’t block anything beyond what built-in adblock blocks (even if I explicitly ask it to). And as good as built-in Ad-block is, it still has long way to go to be used as primary software.

Sides and top are clean on Chrome version.
I used this website as an example, some places are even worse.
OS: Ubuntu 16.04.6
Brave Version 0.61.52 Chromium: 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Steps to recreate the issue:
- Download uBlock (or any other ad-blocking extension (tried with uBlock, AdBlock and one VPN extension that I do not want to advertise)) from chrome web store
- Visit a website that built-in brave adblock doesn’t clean from ads (above screenshots from tetris.com/play-tetris)
