AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer blocks annoying banner, pop-up, and video ads from appearing on the Web sites you visit. It blocks everything automatically, but it's easy to unblock sites. AdBlock Plus does more than block annoying ads. It also disables tracking, malware domains, and social media buttons, if you tell it to. Acceptable Ads appear on ad-supported sites that follow AdBlock Plus community guidelines, helping to keep both those sites and this free, open-source browser extension that way (i.e. free). We tried AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer in IE 11.

Installing AdBlock Plus in IE 11 required a system reboot. The add-on works automatically. We looked for but couldn't see the familiar ABP browser button until we enabled IE's Status Bar (under Tools/Toolbars), which isn't displayed by default. After that, we could click the ABP icon to access the add-on's options, manage blocking, and more. Some of the extra features dialogs didn't display in IE 11, but it's easy to report issues and bugs, and the AdBlock Plus community responds quickly.

For the most part, the brand-spanking-new AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer worked as well as in other browsers, and much better than anything else like it, free or not. We clicked some tiles to open ad-laden sites we'd visited in our previous session. Some blocked ads showed placeholders, but AdBlock Plus closed up most spaces for a much tidier look. We also visited sites participating in the Acceptable Ads initiative, and we're totally in sync with both the spirit and the results. All IE users should try AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer.

"How did it get on my machines?"

April 07, 2015  |  By FrankBarnard

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer 1.2

Pros

None. I don't want or need this and don't know how it got into my machines.

Cons

Adblocker appeared on 2 machines on my network this morning. I can't figure out how it got in. I had never heard of it and did not approve install. One machine showed a stop sign in top right corner that I didn't recognize. The other machine opened a Chrome tab asking for a "donation." Not happy.

Summary

Looks like malware to me.

"This thing is Amazing !"

January 31, 2015  |  By sportsguy4114

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer 1.2

Pros

This ad-blocker works way better than any other I have tried. It blocks most everything, even ALL those annoying ads, pop-ups and redirects from movie sites. It even gives you the choice the block those annoying Facebook and Twitter social BS buttons. It deserves at least a 5 star rating. I would give it 7.

Cons

NONE ! It works better than I could ever dream it would.

Summary

Best thing since Sliced-Bread, especially if you like movie sites.
