Some trackers not blocked?

I continue with my initial experiences with AdGuard - I have the app installed on my Mac.

As I understand the way AdGuard is working, it should stop all trackers, right? Unless, of course, I "whitelist" a page or site.

To a large extent it seems to be working properly - except for Google Chrome browser.

Let me explain. On my Mac, I have also Cookie 5 installed. I used to open it once a day in order to remove cookies, trackers, etc.

After installing AdGuard, I have continued to open Cookie 5 at least once a day, also as a matter of curiosity: would Cookie spot some elements missed by AdGuard?

If Chrome is not open, and only other browsers are open, it seems to be fine; no cookie or tracker is left.

If Chrome is open, however, there are a few dozens trackers spotted by Cookie 5. I delete them, but trackers and other cookies keep coming back. I just deleted 30 tracking cookies and 144 other cookies - I had already done it twice today.

This is intriguing. Google Chrome is listed in my AdGuard preferences. What makes it resistant to AdGuard, while other browsers are not?

Yes, this is what we strive for.

I can't answer why do you see such behavior without doing some testing. @aegis can you assist me in testing this out?

Sure thing, I will try using Cookie 5 and check what's going on :)
Sounds like a filtering task though.
