Adguard license claims Https filtering.  If that works on Youtube, this program might be a keeper.

Also states, "Note: The giveaway version of Adguard for Windows has no function limits. But the giveaway license key doesn't support free updates and free tech support."  Rather confusing but I interpret that as saying the giveaway version will offer neither updates nor support and after six months, it won't function at all.

Translation: This is not a giveaway but simply a six-month trialware version beyond the normal 14-day trial version always available.  Rather sneaky.  Or am I being too critical?

I don't read it as saying it will stop functioning after 6 months -- only that you won't be able to update it.

Fair enough.  I guess they're at least being honest about how long this will handle all ad issues thrown at it unlike like a lot of those giveawayoftheday programs that mysteriously stop functioning despite being marketed as "lifetime."

I agree with this interpretation. I think it's a 6-month license. (aka 6 month trial)


That said, I find AdGuard worth the money, and have paid for a lifetime license for my devices when it was mentioned here last year. :Thmbsup:

I wouldn't touch a standalone application doing HTTPS filtering with a 10-foot pole.

It requires either basically setting up a MITM proxy (and there's pretty much nobody that does that correctly, it adds tons of potential security holes, and makes it really hard to see your real protection status from the browser) - or it can be done via API hooking, which is somewhat better, but something that a lot of people get terribly wrong as well.

A browser extension doing the same thing can be fine, since it works at a different level.
