    Allow acceptable ads by default, which is unfair to users hoping to block all ads.

    Ublock doesn't have "acceptabe ads" by default, and seems to be more lightweight and full-featured

    Ghostery tells you when a website is requesting private information (and offers to block the request). uBlock prevents advertisements from loading.

    Some overlap, but Ghostery is focused more on privacy and uBlock more on usability
