Adguard is much lighter with the native filters than with the easy list ones. If I have both Easylist and native filters on plus Malware blocking and submit info, it can peak high above 115MB, if only EasyList on, around 60 MB, and if nothing but English filter on, as low as 20 MB.No it's not. I am at a lost to understand why people are so eager to propagate myths rather than just stick to describing reality.
Here, I ensured I am comparing apples with apples, i.e. SAME LISTS, and I forced garbage collection on both extensions:

And Adguard tags you with a unique id, and track your browsing history if you enable "Malware, phising protection". They changed their code to make it less obvious (lo longer logged in console), but it's still all there, it can be seen from the dev network tab.
