Usability Feedback
Everyone can use, UI so simple. Tracker and Ad Protection working well, i never saw adblocker warnings but Ad Protection failed to delete empty ad boxes. Not better than uBlock or Nano. Also VPN speed is enough, but ping (Frankfurt) bit high.

Looks good, the VPN looks somewhat limited, & the privacy policy from 'Mail Chimp' (the marketing company) to me as it contains a VPN (and if it didn't) is a certain no-no with huge great bells on - As I have lifetime licence for AdGuard & just bought IVPN little point giving it a try but thank you!

Good review and screen shots @matrixlord.

I think it was @Lenny_Linux -- working on a project for school... his posts on the study of ad-blocking indirectly got me interested in the beta for Ghostery Midnight.

Here is what it is--

I like the comprehensive approach. And Lenny_Lunux (correct me if I'm remembering this incorrectly) posted information from his academic study indicating that the method of Ghostery could be more effective than other ad-blocking methods --- in some circumstances.

So this is one I'll be watching.

The implementation of Manifest 3 by Google might trigger some companies to innovate their software and re-think their value proposition. For power users this Manifest 3 looked like a threat, but it might change for the better (AdGuard, Ghostery, Edge-Chromium, Opera, Brave responses to Manifest 3) (y)

I've just had an email from Ghostery regarding Midnight Premium & offered it to me at £8 UK Pounds per month - £96 per year ($125) reduced from normal cost of 14 UK pounds again per month (£168) yearly though the price will never increase - Very good of them lol :unsure: (might stick with AdGuard Lifetime)

Ouch. Maybe I'll stick with Adguard too

Why should anyone trust them after the privacy leaks in past? It's the same with the similar WoT (from another company) add-on.
Personally I wouldn't trust any products from that company's.

Just my 5c
