I have explained that Privacy Badger could provide a misleading sense of privacy in #335. I have just noticed that there exists a similar add-on, for Chrome and Firefox, called Privacy Possum, which claims to be stricter than Privacy Badger. It might be worth a look at its claims on its Github repository. Apparently, it is developed by someone who works at EFF, and has worked for 6 months on Privacy Badger.

Anyone tried it and can recommend this addon beside uBlock Origin, uMatrx, Decentraleyes and Firefox Containers?

I have been using the addon and I don't have any problem with it now. There used to be a problem when I tried to log in on SteamDB.info but this issue has been fixed.

I cannot really tell how much additional privacy this provides for someone who has installed all the addons mentioned above.

It isn't clear to me how adding this would be better than the combination of add-ons we currently recommend, which pretty much cover all bases.
