Editors' Review

BetaFish Adblocker (formerly AdBlock for Chrome) is the go-to extension if you want to remove ads, pop-ups, and other annoyances that get in the way of viewing a page. It's easy to add to your browser and gets to work right away.

Pros

It works: In BetaFish Adblocker, a handy number under the icon in the browser toolbar shows you how many items it's blocking, so you know it's always working.

Customizable: Although you can just add the extension and go, there are plenty of ways to customize which sites it works on, and a quick menu lets you quickly turn the application off for a page you're on or even all subpages within a specific domain.

Cons

Pay what you want: The software is free to use, but the publisher does ask you to ante up what you think AdBlock is worth. It's not a huge drawback, but you will be asked to pay. The default amount is set to $35.

Bottom Line

BetaFish Adblocker for Chrome does a stellar job of keeping only the content you want on a page. That means no ads, pop-ups, nor other distractions. If you use Chrome, this is a must-have.

"Was a 5 but won't block google ads so ;-;"

January 20, 2015

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.16.3

Pros

Says it blocks "ALL ads" but it's showing google ads with no way to correct that :( I hate ads so much

Cons

It's ********- Block all ads if you say ALL

Summary

********. Used to be awesome. Now it's not enough. Google ads are most of the annoying ads that I see so this doesnt work for me anymore. :(

"Worked fine then just went crazy"

January 08, 2015  |  By jelena.mikic.338

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.15

Pros

The AdBlock worked great in the beginning and I was super happy. It was blocking most of the ads and made surfing a lot more enjoyable.

Cons

It first started not blocking a certain amount of ads. After that, it started showing the same three banners on each and every website I visited and eventually led to completely disabling my browser for normal usage.

"Absolutely superb"

April 15, 2013  |  By ahnand123

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

Blocks almost every ad that shows up automatically.
Allows me to permanently edit out ads that slipped through the net.
Has a super-easy interface.

Cons

Basically none, although there was a slight problem with the interface at first, because there's no help file. However, the entire thing is rather self-explanatory, and I got the hang of it really quickly.

Summary

AdBlock Plus is an extremely helpful program that blocks all of those annoying popup ads. I can recommend it to anyone with no reservations whatsoever, as I makes life on the Web a lot easier.

"I love this for personal use!"

April 08, 2013  |  By NevynHira

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

It makes browsing a whole lot more pleasant.

Cons

Funnily enough, the advertising. It presents you with a nag screen upon installation asking you to donate money (and also has a link within the popup menu saying "Did you know I do this for a full time job?").

In terms of deployment, this is a mess. Depending on your context (for me, it's school children), this could possibly be a real problem. Do you really want your users to be presented with a screen asking for them to pay money?

Summary

For personal use, this extension rocks the party that rocks the party. For large deployments, it's a bummer that it's own advertising makes it unsuitable.

"An excellent ad blocking filter."

February 17, 2013  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

Very comprehensive; just install it; select your filter subscriptions; enable it; forget it. AB will take care of the rest automatically. Filters better than other similar products.

Cons

None at this time.

Summary

Try it with your Chrome Browser. It's free, but if it meets your expectations, make a donation to the AB author.
