With the deprecation/archiving of uMatrix (https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix), I have translated my uMatrix rule list into a uBlock Origin dynamic rules list that is much less granular. The uBlock Origin dynamic rules list blocks 3rd party scripts and frames by default and selectively reenables 3rd party scripts on a site-by-site basis, similar to the old uMatrix rules list. I will keep the uMatrix rules list in this repo for the time being.
Additional filter lists for uBlock Origin are recommended below.
Web Annoyances Ultralist is a great filter list: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/yourduskquibbles/webannoyances/master/ultralist.txt
My (krathalan's) Annoyances list seeks to remove ads, clutter, popovers, and popunders. The list also seeks to remove dark patterns that interrupt content or keep you on a website, like "content carousels", "most popular articles", "suggested content", and "recommended stories".

Fanboy's Anti-thirdparty Fonts list: https://fanboy.co.nz/fanboy-antifonts.txt
Fonts are commonly loaded from Google, Amazon, and other font hosting sites. This list stops that. The Fanboy list blocks some websites from loading fonts from their own domain, such as on gitlab.com for proper icons.
Some websites may look different or broken when using this list.
Many of these are simply good hosts lists meant to be used with Pihole or similar programs, but work well with uBlock Origin as well.
