AdGuard for Windows/Mac vs AdGuard Home

Does anyone know offhand how Adguard for Windows/Mac compares to Adguard Home?

I currently run Adguard for Windows, as well as Adguard for Mac. It would be nice if I could centralize my adblocking, and it seems that's exactly what Adguard Home does. I can't find any comparisons though, and wondering if anyone has done any testing.

I would have posted this in the Adguard Home forum.. if there was one. :D

Oh, thank you very much! Well then, guess I'm sticking with Adguard for Windows/Mac. The lifetime license has been sooo worth it.

To elaborate further on what Blaz said, AdGuard Home works well with devices that don't have a dedicated AdGuard app like smart TVs, Android TV boxes (which the HTTPS certificate can't be installed on unless you have a rooted Nvidia Shield TV), etc. Since it's domain (DNS) based blocking, it can't block things like YouTube ads, Twitch ads, Facebook ads, etc. Removing those on websites requires cosmetic filtering, which AdGuard for Windows/Mac does.

Not possible unfortunately. The only workaround is a YouTube Premium subscription.
