Is it OK to use dBlock and Privacy Badger at the same time?

I disable AdBlock on sites I visit regularly, because I’d kind of like them to make enough money to stay in business. However, I also dislike intrusive advertising and I dislike companies tracking me across multiple websites even more. I am currently using AdBlock and Privacy Badger at the same time on my Chrome browser, based on the idea that AdBlock will stop the intrusive ads while Privacy Badger will stop the tracking cookies. Is there any reason that the two shouldn’t be used together, in the same way that you shouldn’t really use two anti-virus programs? I haven’t noticed any issues, so I assume it is ok.

I’ve used AdBlock Plus and Privacy Badger together for a few months without any problems. They are really doing two different tasks, even though Privacy Badger was built using AdBlock Plus code. I’ve also used Ghostery with ABP and didn’t have any problems doing that either. I wouldn’t worry about it if I were you, unless you notice some problem loading pages.

I don't see why not, as long as your browser doesn't get too slow or crash. If it's working fine then no need to worry about it. Keep them both running.
