      Adblock Plus vs Ghostery opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Adblock Plus is still a legitimate alternative to Ghostery, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Compuitguy Adblock Plus is the ultimate blocker.

      Adblock Plus is about blocking ads. Ghostery is about blocking trackers. They're complementary. One is not a substitute for the other.

      ericwaters Adblock does what it says on the tin, but it's not a tracker blocker. It is in no way an alternative to Ghostery.

      Adblock Plus focuses on blocking advertisements. While it can block tracking, it doesn't have an interface created for it like Ghostery does.

    3. Just as webpages grew bloated with ads, so too have ad blockers grown bloated with little-used filtering rules and features that sap their would-be speed and hog your computer or device’s disk space, CPU cycles, and memory.
