    I enjoyed Adguard because Adblock is a memory hug, and I also liked the options offered and the clean interface.

    I was looking at the options, and there is a spyware block list, and wondered if that could be a replacement for Ghostery, which blocks these:
    Advertising: 954 trackers
    Analytics: 297 trackers
    Beacons: 378 trackers
    Privacy: 18 trackers
    Widgets: 280 trackers

    The reason I'm asking this is that Ghostery consumes a good amount of RAM too, so I would like to know if these kind of spyware are included in Adguard too!

    Thank you for your attention!

    Greetings and welcome!

    Yes, Adguard can be used as a replacement for both Ghostery and Disconnect and from what I heard it can be used with them too (though I wouldn't recommend it). As the description for the extension says;

    As long as you enable the Spyware and tracking filter, you should be good to go!
