Adguard is the world’s most advanced web filter and ad blocker beside Ad Muncher, Adguard provides you with a reliable and manageable protection that immediately and without your participation filters the loading web pages. Adguard removes all the annoying ads, blocks loading of dangerous websites, and will not allow anyone to track your activities on the Internet.
Adguard is often compared with well-known browser-extensions – Adblock and Adblock Plus. In this article we describe what main advantages Adguard has, that his competitors haven’t.
When processing a web page, Adguard does several things at once:
1. Removes ads and online tracking code directly from the page.
2. Checks a page against our database of phishing and malicious sites.
3. Checks the reputation of the website and informs you about it, if necessary.
Adguard’s advantages are largely due to the limitations that are imposed on browser-based extensions. Adblock and Adblock Plus technologically are not able to remove all the ads on the page. That’s because Adguard processes page even before it is loaded into the browser, removing all advertising elements. Extensions work on a different principle – advertising banners hide only after they are loaded onto the page. If you’ve ever used Adblock, then you surely noticed how the hiding banners “blink”.
The second advantage of Adguard is also due to the fact that it is a separate program, not a browser-extension. Adguard can block ads in any browser. Whatever browser you use, whether it’s Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer or Yandex… – with Adguard you will forget about irritating online ads.
If you use a rare browser – it can be a problem for Adblock and Adblock Plus, because these extensions exist only for the most popular browsers. With Adguard you won’t have these problems, you can easily add your browser to the protected list.
And that’s not all. Adguard can block ads in Skype, uTorrent and many other common programs. Just add them to the list of browsers and restart.
In addition to blocking ads, Adguard gives you a lot of additional tools. Perhaps the most important of them is the Phishing Filter. Operation of this module is built on the use of constantly updated blacklists of malicious and phishing sites. Adguard uses the two main sources. First is the list of Google Safe Browsing. Second is Adguard’s own blacklists. We are constantly monitoring data on the safety of websites and quickly improve our filters.
