Editors' Review

+

This Firefox extension saves bandwidth and Web site loading time by blocking banners and other ads. Adblock Plus effectively blocks online ads from a predefined list of ad providers, and you can easily expand the list by clicking on an advertisement.

Adblock Plus runs unobtrusively in the background and has no true interface. However, right-clicking an ad brings up a bland, text-based 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.

Any Firefox user annoyed by a barrage of advertising will appreciate this free extension. Recommended.

"Hard to install: What's a .xpi anyway?"

April 26, 2008  |  By Rich Devens

 |  Version: Adblock Plus 0.7.5.4

Pros

Still blocks ads well, I like that! No ads is SO awesome!

Cons

The .xpi file was as useful as a dead raccoon; I went to Wladimir's site and got it to download properly there.

"Popup Blocker for the Web 2.0 Generation!"

August 08, 2008  |  By sprwelch

 |  Version: Adblock Plus 0.7.5.4

Pros

YAYY!! I DON'T SEE ADS ANYMORE!!!

This truly is the Popup blocker for the WEB 2.0 Generation!!!

This program is going to spread like wildfire!! I see the ramification as being widespread, since it blocks all scripts for ad hosting site and even google analytics can be blocked! It even will block the inserted commercials on popular television shows that are streamed directly from their sites! This one little tool is truly going to make the advertising market question how they will generate revenue.

Plus with the additional tools that can be downloaded for this program you truly have control on what you want to see on any website!

DOWNLOAD IT TODAY!!!

"I regret that I can be of no help"

July 10, 2008  |  By Madeleine Hanley

 |  Version: Adblock Plus 0.7.5.4

Pros

I don't know how else to contact you so I hope you don't mind my using this space. I found the program on my computer but don't remember downloading it. When I tried to install it following your email nothing happened. So I'm in the dark, I'm afraid.
