How does FF57's online monitoring protection differ from the one provided by Privacy Badger? Does the first make the second obsolete? Any other relevant considerations?

Thank you for your time!

firefox dont has a "online monitoring protection" feature. it has anti-tracking which is offered from built-in Disconnect-List. (weak or strong to select in settings)

privacy badger is futile, chose uBlock origin and make your settings.
