Thanks @Evjl's Rain (y)
My setup: 19/20
Realtime KFA & Comodo Firewall. Google Chrome with extensions: AdGuard, Comodo Online Security, WDBP.
1 by Comodo, the rest by WDBP and KFA
As expected no beep from AdGuard, but strange results from Comodo this time!
EDIT: seems that Comodo has some problems:

I have no idea what's the problem is
in this test, I grabbed the links outside vxvault so I expect many extensions to fail because vxvault links are usually a few days old before being published

now we can see the real strength of these extensions
they are not so great against truly new links, especially comodo, norton, WD and ublock with all filters
it seems KFA and MB still shine

Netcraft is a great extension, unfortunately it only tried to detect PUP sites. As that's the main focus of the extension, the secondary focus is stopping XSS attempts.

I only think the only good extensions out there for dedicated Malware protection (non-adblocker) would be Malwarebytes Browser Extension, WDBP, Norton Web Safe (FF)/Norton Safe Search (Chrome/Opera) & Avira Browser Safety.

Yeah very buggy on chrome, malwarebytes and ubo blocking every search its trying to do

For firefox it works smooth and is available on firefox extensions
not sure how it works but in chrome it changes my search engine as usual and cannot change it back until I remove it
the detection rate is rubbish also

not sure about the firefox one

Avira is pretty good on webfiltering, but should disable ad blocking if you already do have adblocker

the only problem with avira is its resource usage
it constantly scans every single traffic of your browser + it can cause memory leak
malwarebytes also scan every traffic but it has no memory leak. High FP rate is the problem and it might break some websites

WDBP, norton, comodo only scan the link once after they load and then, never touch any traffic => extremely lightweight

Panda web safe have also ad/tracker blocking feature, on browserleaks it wont detect me using adblocker so i think its decent for someone using panda products, if this feature comes along with it

Better than nothing atleast :p

In my testing Avira also uses Mixpanel analytics and that was always blocked by Emsisofts PUP settings. So a nogo for me for a security company.

achieve 25/25
arrh, I forgot to mention
I'm sure your pihole list has vxvault's url blocklist
http://vxvault.net/URL_List.php
so pihole would be able to block almost all links because I took most links there

I didn't want to add that list to ublock because it would be unfair to other extensions

in the new test, I collected 19 links outside vxvault so I don't think your pihole list would get 100% detection rate anymore
