What is the benefit of using Brave’s ad blocker over something like AdGuard? Also does Brave use it’s own filters and rules or does it use EasyList which is used by pretty much every ad blocker out there?
One small observation that I have noticed is that Brave does not offer cosmetic filtering which removes the blank spaces where ads were blocked. I could be wrong but when it comes to just pure ad blocking, AdGuard is far more thorough and effective, especially when you utilize additional filters like Spyware filter which is a massive list of online trackers. There’s a social media filter which stops another means of tracking and the NoCoin filter which stops your computer’s resources from being used to mine bitcoins.
And there are many other filters that can be used and customized to one’s individual needs, little being available in Brave.
