If you see my entire post, the one you replied, you can see i mean URLs and wildcards. Since a lot of lists use regex and wildcards, those list were not loaded in pi-hole, rendering it pretty useless for high quality lists. They did have regex for custom lists, but it was so badly implemented it was extremely resource hungry.
It also didn’t support dnsmasq’s domain redirecting feature (address=/host.com/#). Their custom dnsmasq version was not configured to use it out of the box, and configuring it was not completely obvious.
Development of Adguard Home was much faster with more features. Only in Version 5.0 has Pihole caught up. The Adguard devs are amazing and in my opinion better than the Pi-hole devs as well. They are team players and love working with companies. Note that Adguard Home is free and open source like Pi-hole.
So again, try not to post to an old thread, things change after 6 months.
