You do not have to pay in order to use the Adguard extension in Edge.
I was using the desktop version. I just installed nanoadblocker and it does have that option. Why do you like Adguard better? I had never tried the extension before. I see nano doesn't have the slide out to the left showing the web sites like ublock does.

Personally, i would use uBlock for Edge but seeing that it is not regularly updated and its being provided by someone else other than Raymond Hill, i just stay away. Adguard substitutes very well.

Nano has a drop-down GUI when you click on the icon. Like uBO in post #2 above, you click on the lower righthand corner in Nano to disable JS for that website. Please explore the drop-down window of Nano by hovering over the icons to see what they are for. If you want precise user instructions, please see the uBO website for details. gorhill/uBlock

Nano in Edge is based on uBO version 1.17.0. uBO in Firefox is version 1.17.2, so Nano in Edge is very concurrent with uBO in Chrome and Firefox. This is one reason using Nano in Edge is better than uBO for Edge (which is not maintained by Raymond Hill). Nano, like uBO, is a wide spectrum blocker which includes but is not limited to adblocking. In Advanced mode it can function as a firewall for your browser, increasing security against malware!
