Ghostery + Ublock Origin Extension Problem

I am a regular Chrome user and since I switched from AdblockPlus to Ublock Origin, one of favorite extension Ghostery is not playing along with Ublock Origin. I am constantly getting an error related to request being redirected to different locations.

ghostery ublock origin error

I dug a little and found out that it is because of the following reasons

  • I have strict rules to block all advertising and trackers in Ghostery
  • Google analytics is allowed on UBlock Origin
  • Since UBlock allowing while Ghostery is blocking there is the confusion

To solve it just allow Google Analytics request on Ghostery. That is it, no more extension error!

For those who think Ublock and Ghostery does the same job, it is not.
