Let me clarify some of my previous comments. While some of the program's technology has been incorporated into Malwarebytes, no date has been officially announced for full and complete integration so the stand-alone version is still available for those who wish to use it without installing Malwarebytes..

Malwarebytes Press Center: Malwarebytes Acquires AdwCleaner

...For the near term, AdwCleaner will retain its current name, supplemented by Malwarebytes branding. Malwarebytes is committed to maintaining the mission of the AdwCleaner product and its features...Malwarebytes will also integrate many of the proprietary techniques and detections into their flagship products.


Malwarebytes Acquires AdwCleaner

...Short term, we will work to give the product a facelift and enhance its detection ability. Over a longer period, we hope to learn from and integrate the technology into our flagship product, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. AdwCleaner will remain free as a standalone product.


Same for JRT which they acquired in June 2015.

Malwarebytes...announced the acquisition of Junkware Removal Tool, a security program that searches for and removes potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) such as adware, spyware, and toolbars. The acquisition will integrate its definitions and tactics into the Malwarebytes product line...The integration of Junkware Removal Tool within Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will take place over the next few months. The stand-alone JRT program will remain intact for those who wish to use it.

If you are just using to scan for PUPs/adware, either will do.
