Opera is my default browser and i´m using VD, but in autopilot mode.
Very light and strong config my friend, by the way, i´m testing WF with Windows Firewall Control, and it´s a very good option if you want to try it. :)
Thank you :)
I've only tried the free version of Binisoft and it's a great rule based controller.
I am currently looking for interactive FWs with more provisions/features to evaluate how useful that additional control can be for combos.
Opera was my fav, tried Cent, got back to Opera ;)

Had replaced Private FW with ZA FW on the other system. Reverted to WD + Private FW + Heimdal Pro + VDS. The former has way more to offer.
@Sr. Normal 2.0 today's flash news goes somewhat like this: some highly anticipated app took decades to begin with and was thrown out.. o_O
If/when I reinstall KIS, I'll bring back DeepArmor (or probably earlier) and swap out VDS, for balancing the functionality equation.

From what I remember, Adguard caused instability in your system, in the form of BSODs?
It's working well in my current setup till now, hopefully it continues to!

I'm sorry, I do not understand what can go wrong. On my computer Opera and Yandex work very quickly working with flash.
How did you miss this ;)?

yea BSOD-ing netio.sys, but the other main issue is, that performance wise, the browser extensions perform better than Adguard desktop while doing the same job.

That should be true. I've had no interest in Adguard extension in general. I'll prefer UBO with added filters.
I'm trying Adguard Desktop for the first time and the system-wide features and some granular control options are keeping me interested. You can easily modify rules or settings unlike in case of a modified host file for universal filtering without that control.
And so far, it feels light on the system. Will evaluate for a couple of days more.
