Editors' Review

+

One of the best known and simplest Firefox add-ons, AdBlock Plus effectively blocks online ads from a predefined list of ad providers. You can quickly personalize that list by clicking on the AdBlock Plus "stop sign" button it installs on either your navigation toolbar or your status bar. Adblock Plus runs unobtrusively in the background, and right-clicking an ad brings up message box, through which you can easily add to the list of blocked ads. Removing an ad from the blocked list also is as simple as clicking and choosing the appropriate option. Via the same list, you can customize certain sites and pages to show their ads, but keep all others blocked. This is especially useful for when AdBlock Plus interferes with streaming videos that air short ads when you play them.

While similar extensions exist for Firefox, none has the reputation of this one, which will also work in Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

"Excellent Add - On (Best Add-On)"

May 28, 2012  |  By PrivettP

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.0.3

Pros

Blocks all pop-ups and video advertisement. Seems to be 100% effective. A lot of work when into this and a lot of care.

Cons

Sometimes blocks too much, but it's easy to resolve.

Summary

I have Window 7 O/S and definitely believe this is an essential add-on for anyone using Firefox. The add-On is unobtrusive and does not interfere with web browsing. I believe it's as essential an enhancement as security software. The software does have a tendency at times to go to far when video is involved. I needed to make exceptions to C-span and Hardball. Those adds that start video then you are on a website and are loud are finally gone. You will never find anything like this in IE. This in itself gives FF and advantage over IE.

"Great addition to Firefox"

April 19, 2012  |  By wowhoof

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.0.3

Pros

Installed easily.
Web Browsing looks so much cleaner now.
Seems to block the fake "ad" search results as well as banner/sidebar ads.
Customizable ad blocks, options for most or all ads, can still access Adblock with the adblock bar hidden.

Cons

It doesn't come preinstalled into it's supported browsers.

Summary

Browsing the web has never looked cleaner. It's amazing what you come to accept as web page "Noise" that you ignore but is ever present. Adblock Plus has really allowed me to see what I'm supposed to see without all the clutter and noise. Some sites seem to function better because of it.
