Between uBlock Origin and Ad Guard which is the best in terms of privacy protection and ad blocking?
Thank you and good day!

IMHO they are very close in capabilities, but uBO is free and open source.

I has been said it is marginally better than AdBlock

Adguard outperforms Adblock by a narrow margin due to some enhanced features, but when it's all said and done, I'm not sure I would want to spend an extra $10+ dollars a month for such a nominal increase in features. Plus, Adblock is available on more platforms since it functions as a browser extension.30 Nov 2021

I completely agree that 10$ a month is bordering on exorbitant when you consider there are many free browser extension Ad Blockers that do a great job.

I have been using uBlock origin for more years than I can remember and it is pretty active in blocking sites unless you allow.  It is very configurable.  I also combine it with uMatrix, I used to use AdBlock Plus, but dropped it when it became unsupported.

Given what is said in its website - https://adguard.com/en/welcome.html

AdGuard for Windows
AdGuard for Windows is not just another ad blocker, it is a multipurpose tool that combines all necessary features for the best web experience. It blocks ads and dangerous websites, speeds up page loading and protects your children when they are online.

I have to wonder if it wouldn't cause conflict with the web shield as AdGuard isn't just a browser extension.

So if you are prepared to do your own research there is a lot of information out there.

Read about both of the addon and still don't understand the huge difference between those two.
