    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.

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