Editors' Review

+

Online ads slow down Web browsing and are quite annoying in general. As an extension for Google Chrome, AdBlock Plus will eliminate all of the ads from your browsing experience, even ones attached to videos on YouTube. It installs in seconds and has absolutely no hiccups or surprises.

This software offers one the best features related to ad blocking -- it strips Web videos of ads. This is a fantastic feature if you frequently watch TV shows or other videos online. Other than that, this program isn't about what you see, but what you don't. While there's no layout of the actual program to speak of, it doesn't leave a bunch of obnoxious blank spaces where ads once were. It modifies Chrome's layout to make it look like the ads were never there in the first place. There are sometimes little jumps where ads would be in Web video, but it's hardly noticeable.

There are two things to look for when you're looking for ad-blocking software: Does it work and is it easy to install? AdBlock Plus fits both of those criteria perfectly. It installs and is ready to go in seconds and snuffs out ads all over the Web. If you use Google Chrome, there's no reason to surf without it.

    "Sometimes no ad no content"

    March 01, 2014   |   By rob143

    Version: Adblock Plus for Chrome 1.7.4

    Pros

    It's nice when it doesn't cause a problem

    Cons

    But at least one online video provider (cbs.com) won't allow video to stream if ads are blocked. It shows up uninvited on one computer, specifically the one I use for watching TV content. For the above reason, it's annoying.

    Summary

    When it gets in the way of something you want to see, it's no good.
