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.

"I think I'm in love!"

February 09, 2013  |  By jycnan

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Chrome 1.3.4

Pros

Rolling ads are gone. Popups are gone. Malicious website notifications from ads are gone. Ads inside of websites are mostly gone.

Cons

It won't do my dishes, probably because it's so busy keeping the ads away!

Summary

I just started with Chrome. I have several virus protectors and the popup blocker on. Chrome struggled to keep up with me, possibly worse than IE. The computer slowed down to a crawl, possibly due to the potentially malicious sites from the ads I was getting from everywhere or my use. I was seriously thinking about dowsing Chrome because it didn't seem to handling them as well as IE. So last week I re-cloned my hard drive and found Adblock and Plus, took me like 20 minutes to decide on which. I fell in love with it in the first five minutes. The only popups I get are BLANK and very few! Chrome is now doing what it says it should be doing, being better than it's predecessor. It is like watching commercial free TV! Chrome no longer freezes, I no longer get malicious website notifications. Like now, I 'only' have three Chromes open and 15 tabs. I'm hard on browsers, I realize that, but each browser is running trouble free. I am no longer having to stop all the time to see what the notifications are from Chrome and other programs. I am no longer running full scans for viruses constantly. I don't have to wait for the ads to load and nothing is going wonkers like it use to. These notifications, btw, are coming from websites such as Facebook, GSN, etc. and I am pretty sure from their ads. Chrome itself was alerting me to a lot of them. So I'm in love with Adblock because it is allowing me not to be distracted and to use Chrome stress free, which I needed for a couple of websites that I use.
