What is the difference between squidGuard and pfBlockerNG?

Hi all, recently I am following a project about setting up a firewall for high school. As my client's requirement, I need to setup a web filtering function that can filter the harmful sites.
Then I see this website and follow the guide, i spot out that the squidGuard has blocked all HTTP request accidentally (HTTPS request is not affected).
So I realize a similar package, pfBlockerNG, I tried to google it and seems this is just blocking the spam sites. But does it have custom blacklist and whitelist function?
Thanks for help.

They both block web access based on text blacklists. Squidguard is smaller & simpler, but not as powerful.

Thanks for your reply :D
the last 2 days i am studying how pfblockerng works and it turns out it can block the ad sites and harmful sites perfectly! such a great package and i am glad that i can finish this project finally.
