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.

"Essential, don't leave homepage without it"

December 26, 2012  |  By Str3akS

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.2

Pros

•default settings (EasyList) covers almost exactly what I want
•simple options to disable on specific sites
•ability to create custom lists and exceptions

Cons

•can be difficult for new users to create new rules from scratch
•would like to see an Adblock Plus menu when I right-click

Summary

This app has been great! I don't know how I browsed the internet without it. I haven't tried any other ad-blocking plug-ins, but that's because I tried this one first! If you haven't tried an ad-block plug-in or are unsatisfied with your current plug-in, I recommend trying Adblock Plus!

"I like it but"

November 24, 2012  |  By genebean66

 |  Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.2

Pros

It still blocks ads, One little problem see Cons

Cons

The biggest Cons. It used to block Hulu annoying ads so you dont have to watch these stupid ads! Now it failed to block the annoying ads Who wants to watch these stupid commercials! Maybe these tech heads at Hulu must have found a way to bypass Adblock Plus so you can be forced to watch these damn commercials! Hopefully people at Adblock Plus will come up with a update to counter Hulu B S ads!

Summary

Unless there is something that I missed that you can block Hulu ads,I would like to know!
