Adguard is a bit different from adblocking addons like Adblock Plus or uBlock Origin in the sense is that it uses a WFP driver and a proxy to filter out ads, and thus it can blocks ads outside browsers (i.e. Skype ads). It also works for the other browsers that most adblocking addons do not support (i.e. Maxthon, Midori).

The WFP driver method can cause problems with AV suite firewalls that also use WFP, so use the proxy method for those.

I switched from Adblock Plus to Adblock Edge a while ago but they both work fine with uBlock Origin and Ghostery.

Adblock Edge is an offshoot of the popular Adblock Plus, but its support already ended. You'd be better off using something like uBlock Origin, which is a lightweight multi-purpose blocker that can block ads, scripts, trackers and other items.

Adblock Edge has been around for a while...

What is Adblock Edge?

Adblock Edge is a fork of the Adblock Plus version 2.1.2 extension for blocking advertisements on the web. This fork will provide the same features as Adblock Plus 2.X and higher but without "acceptable ads" feature.


However, Mozilla has recently added a note...
Adblock Edge

**This addon has been discontinued
Reason: Discontinued in favor of Ublock Origin, a general purpose blocker, that not only outperforms Adblock Edge but is also available on other browsers and, of course, without "Acceptable Ads Whitelist".


Yes I use Ghostery for Firefox.

Hi just a update since i started using Ghostery and uBlock Origin ive noticed when i run superanti spyware it only finds about 2 cookies as before it used to find about 600 odd cookies so ghostery and uBlock Origin are doing a great job i also set up Ghostery with your instructions here https://uwnthesis.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/ghostery-how-to-configure-ghostery-to-stop-trackers/

SUPERAntiSpyware will scan for cookies by default and show them as Adware.Tracking Cookies threat detections. There is no need to scan for them since cookies pose no significant threat (see here) and anti-malware scanners have more important things to look for. You can ignore scanning for cookies by changing the settings and disabling the option to search for cookies. Doing that will also decrease the amount of time it takes to perform a scan.
