...Among the VPNs that were tested though.
Actually, you don't need a VPN with ad blocking capability. It's also mentioned in Windscribe's R.O.B.E.R.T. that if you turned on ads and trackers blocking there's a huge impact on its speed. BTW, this is for the Pro (paid) users only.

Ads & trackers — this mode expands on top of mode 2 and also blocks hundreds of thousands of known ad and tracking domains. This will have a huge positive impact on your browsing speed, and data usage, especially on mobile.
If you use K9 web filter (for desktop) or your AV has a web filter plus an extension like uBO/Nano Adblocker etc with some filters would suffice for web filtering

This, also, can leave you to choose a fast speed VPN provider

If you read the below you'll find that Perfect Privacy VPN has the best ad blocker

Anxious to see some testing done on this.
The article shows that it's comparable to Perfect Privacy VPN in minimizing ads and trackers and both are the best in the benchmarks at the blog.

The wording though. :) If I enable Social Networks it will block Twitter. I am curious who filters Windscribe is using for malware and ad block.

I think f-secure freedome VPN has done something similar for several years.
Freedome's Tracking Protection is practically worthless nowadays as it only works on unencrypted sites. Same goes for their Browsing Protection but the majority of malicious sites are still HTTP so it's a lot more useful in that department.
