Hello, Ad blocking / pop-up blocking / cosmetic filtering is still a weak point of Malwarebytes Browser Guard. I wish to see it be good enough at those things one day to avoid having to use an ad blocker like uBlock Origin or Adguard or Ghostery et cetera alongside it. 1. Are there any plans on using a list of websites that commonly have annoying ads of various types that constantly try to get past ad blockers (like various adult websites, bootleg streaming video websites, et cetera) and ad blocking test websites to regularly test / train Malwarebytes Browser Guard against to improve its ad blocking & keep up with the advertisers? Some ad blocker test websites: Ad Blocker Test (d3ward.github.io) AdBlock Tester: test your AdBlock extensions (adblock-tester.com) Test your blocker (raymondhill.net) https://canyoublockit.com/ And various real world websites like I mentioned with constantly evolving annoying ads that are submitted to you that you can add to a special list to use for real world testing. 2. Any plans to integrate / use some open source superior ad blocking techniques, filter lists, code, APIs, whatever from uBlock Origin or Brave Browser(?) or Ghostery(?) or Adguard(?), et cetera; like how Avira had teamed up with Adguard for ad blocking in their extension I think (which now has better ad blocking than Malwarebytes Browser Guard)? Anyway, it would be great to see Malwarebytes Browser Guard improve to match or surpass those ad blockers. I am also curious to see what happens if you open up Malwarebytes Browser Guard's heuristic ad blocking for all websites instead of just YouTube, and train it against the previously mentioned websites & real world ad filled websites. Thank you, — John Jr
