Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Yet another reason: It's becoming practically impossible to access some
 bloated websites with the Tor Browser in machines with only 1-2Go of RAM,
 and with the switch to FF59 which will have 4 content processes this will
 be even impossible. As has been proven many times, blocking trackers has
 on average significant benefits in terms of RAM usage, especially on
 bloated news sites full of trackers (gorhill, the uBlockOrigin maintainer,
 has some nice examples:
