lists an item for "ad-blocker".

I don't understand why this item is here.
The name of the program, uBlock Origin, doesn't say

If we think "ad-blocker" is not a good term for that program
then we can simply not use that term, right?


   When the purpose of some program is to block advertisements,
   “ad-blocker” is a good term for it. However, [50]uBlock Origin blocks
   advertisements that track the user as consequence of broader measures
   to prevent surveillance by web sites. This is not an “ad-blocker,” this
   is surveillance protection. Read more about [51]“Ad-blocker”.
