10 Ad Blocking Extensions Tested for Best Performance

Blocking advertisements on web pages is becoming increasingly popular and an ad blocker is now one of the most installed browser
extensions for Chrome and Firefox. To see how an ad blocker performs while blocking ads and how many resources it uses while doing so,
we have decided to put several to the test.

Pale Moon, HostsMan, AdBlock Plus or now Adblock Latitude, Ghostery

https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/privacy-and-security/adblock-latitude/

Compatibility

Adblock Latitude version 3.0.2 works with Pale Moon 25.0 to 26.*

The change keeps all your same sitting etc so all works the same.

Both should work well with PaleMoon Gordon as far as I know of. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3. umatrix doesn't slow anything down and I like the logging feature that it has.

I can't remember now but think I installed AdBlockLatitude and then uninstalled AdBlockPlus.

I see it is still using the AdBlockPlus folder with the .ini and patterns or backup but all works great.
I still Element Hiding Helper with it.

Which browsers does ApGuard Version six work on?  The only "ApGuard" I'm finding is spelled differently and is licensed software:  AppGuard | Home.

Then there was this finding also with the different spelling.  http://www.herdprotect.com/appguard.exe-60730e9169a4070ba32a671096616484d069c08a.aspx

Ok, I'd seen that before.  For $19.95/year for one device it better be good.
