Editors' Review

+

Despite the ongoing efforts of browser developers, adware and pop-up ads continue to annoy the Web surfer. But this little Internet Explorer add-on will help reclaim the pop-up-free Web-browsing experience you remember from the golden age of the Internet. Or at the very least, reduce the aggravating intrusion of unwanted advertising.

AdBlocker Pro installs an unobtrusive icon--a small green shield--on both your IE toolbar and the IE status bar. We were able to configure it by clicking either icon, which we found handy for folks who may want to rely on accessing ad-blocking tools from a location other than an already-cluttered toolbar. In our tests, we found configuring the tool a very simple process, enabling us to specify at which sites the tool should kill pop-up and flash ads. We also liked the filter log, which listed the blocked items from the sites we visited.

AdBlocker Pro performed well in our tests, and we were pleased with its generous trial period, which should allow any user time enough to decide whether to register and purchase the tool. You can probably find similar blockers with more bells and whistles, but we liked the simplicity AdBlocker Pro offers. We wish it were available for other browsers beside IE, but maybe a future version will offer that option.
