ok, just went through this. Man, I'm glad someone did these tests. So here's my question...why use a product like Adguard? (I switched to this from ad muncher recently). ublock origin is clearly the best of the bunch, and it works as a plugin. is there any advantage to adguard, which is different than plugins in that it runs as a separate software service, not really a plugin although it behaves the same way in browsers. I think someone here did a great review on it.
The only reason i can think of is that it blocks things other than browser stuff. Supposedly, it blocks it directly at the source, whatever that means. But the advantage of this was supposed to be that it's even faster than just a plain ol plugin blocker. But...now that these tests are out, that is not really the case. So why use it? You would think it has additional features a plugin doesn't, but i can't really think of any that a plugin doesn't have. Like, I just use the white and black list features for the most part, and all blockers have that.
