Creator of uBlock writes:

"I investigated a bit the performance regressions, and the cause is many distinct code paths, [which] affect many sites" wrote Hill, later highlighting sites which update dynamically. "Since it affects both Adblock Plus and AdBlock, the performance regression hits harder those who had the bad idea to use both at once."

While uBlock was acquired by AdBlock in 2018, it should be noted that Hill works on uBlock Origin, a version of the extension that remained independent after uBlock's acquisition.
