I use it, very good and impressed, has a lot of very useful features. Just do not add too many ad blocker filters as it will slow down your browser/internet speed. Also after the Web of Trust (trust issues) I deleted the extension from the user interface. Stealth mode works and it's very good at blocking malware sites, plus you get a little widget on all webpages that you can click for info and allow ads etc.,

I represent a charity and the good folks at Adguard donated to us a 5 lifetime Standard license. We use the Mac and Windows version of Adguard and both work great, and I am not sure how I could live without it. It is a very efficient software. The odd times it would block other scripts such as on Facebook Advert Manager. Otherwise I highly recommend it (but try a Trial version if you can).

I really love it, bought 3 life time licenses for myself and 2 for my girlfriend. Sometimes it a bit too aggresive with legit websites, but you can easly disable adguard for a website (Adguard browing 'badge'). The only thing it is not that good in, are popup's I frequently still have some popup's. But it's a very very powerfull piece of software :)

This is the feature I love the most: easily whitelist a site.

Adguard for Desktop is good. I use it every now and then. I have a lifetime license. :D

The only drawback I can say about Adguard is its incompatibility with some Antiviruses, like Kaspersky, ESET, and Bitdefender. And personally, I'm disappointed because they don't see this incompatibility as an urgent matter. They acknowledge the issue, but they haven't released a fix yet, until later (hopefully, within 2017). It's as if they don't know that Adguard (desktop), as an adblocker, is usually paired with AVs.

I agree, probably it is not a technical incompatibility, but marketing incompatibility :D
