Nice to hear from you but as part of adguard dns filtering, the database is updated every 4 days or maximum after each week as per the adguard support team, whereas the adgaurd extension is updated on real time basis.
Even if filters were updated like once a year, it is not really problem, the main stuff is blocked (Google, etc), the rest does not matter that much.
On the side note, AdguardDNS support is nonexistent. In comparison, if I report a webpage to OpenDNS, it is blocked within minutes, hours at most.
Also the extension version works faster than dns version since if we make use of dns service it will cause the internet to run slowly as compared to extension , because in that case all the traffic is run/ filetred through the third party dns server.
ublock origin is the best. Blocks virtually all ads and even allows custom filter. The deal breaker for me was not because of how effective its ad-block is but rather because it uses much less memory compared to the rest (looking at you Adblock Plus). I'm someone that opens so many tabs so yeah, it's a problem I had with Adblock Plus. Some of you might not realize this, but try using your Chrome Task Manager to see just how much RAM your ad blocker uses after opening decent number of tabs. You might begin to wonder if it' just an ad blocker!
In Firefox: Policeman + Adguard AdBlocker add-ons.
On my test website, Policeman blocked 24 requests for ads, and Adguard AdBlocker: 9 (with Policeman disabled, Adguard AdBlocker blocked 33 ads). I don't see ads here, anymore.
Policeman - by futpib:Policeman – Add-ons for Firefox
- Policeman gives you precise control over what web requests are allowed. Create rules based on domain name and type of resource being requested. It can also be used to improve privacy or block cross-site scripts.
This is a lightweight alternative to NoScript.
No configuration, just a button for the global Java Script permission (also found under Options > Content > Enable Java Script).
It will affect the parsing for all tabs and all domains.
In Chromium forks (CENT Browser, Slimjet, Iron, Opera): ContentBlockHelper, ScriptSafe, Content-aware Ad Blocker, ZenMate Web Firewall extensions.
On this same test website, ContentBlockHelper blocked 138 requests, ScriptSafe 26, Content-aware Ad Blocker 11 (then +2 after each restart of the website), and ZenMate Web Firewall 11. I don't see ads here, nothing bad.
So it's OK, that Poper Blocker says: Looking good - so far no pop-ups were found on ...)
"SURPRISES YOU WON’T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE."
"Not all websites have popups."
Do you know - that pop-up test on the Pop up blocker for Chrome™ - Poper Blocker extension Welcome page is an false pop-up? It's NOT an popup?
Here you have this test Welcome page of Poper Blocker: Welcome - Poper Blocker
- then make (on Chrome browser) on this "Test popup" button right click/inspect and you are on developer tools page, which spoke about "elementor-button-content-wrapper", and "elementor-button-text".
On Google I found this elementor link: Elementor.com: Elementor ★ Page Builder for WordPress
"Elementor is a front-end drag & drop page builder for WordPress.Elementor lets you design any website, on any theme. It's free and easy, get it now!"
On another link: wordpress.org/plugins/elementor/ : Elementor Page Builder
- we read:
"SURPRISES YOU WON’T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE.
With Elementor’s unique features, you can create websites that have that certain ‘designer touch’. Among our page builder features are: Box Shadows, Background Overlays, Hover Effects, Headline Effects, Animations, Shape Dividers, Gradient Backgrounds and much more."
Hmm, Poper Blocker way of advertising is very shady.
