Oh, sweet, sweet Adblock. We loved you in Firefox, and Adblock for Chrome is just as wonderful. Who knew that one little browser add-on could make surfing the Internet so much more enjoyable?

Adblock does exactly what its name implies: it blocks ads. Pretty much all of them. Banner ads? Yes. Those crazy annoying Flash ads that seem to be popping up everywhere? You bet. Facebook ads, Google ads, pop-up ads? Check, check, and check. Using the Internet with Adblock is oddly peaceful; all you see is the content you're looking for, and not all the distracting clutter that we've grown accustomed to. A small notification in the bottom right corner of the screen lets you know when a pop-up has been blocked, and you can choose to have Adblock stop blocking pop-ups from individual sites if desired. Using Adblock also results in the practical advantage of faster page loads, which is always a plus. This extension offers plenty of options for customization, allowing users to specify domains for which they don't want ads blocked, select specific filters, and submit ads that Adblock missed. Like most browser add-ons, Adblock doesn't have a Help file, but it's pretty straightforward. We found Adblock to be very effective and easy to use, and we highly recommend it to anyone seeking a smoother, less cluttered Web-browsing experience.

Adblock for Chrome is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this add-on to all users.

"Absolutely superb"

April 15, 2013  |  By ahnand123

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

Blocks almost every ad that shows up automatically.
Allows me to permanently edit out ads that slipped through the net.
Has a super-easy interface.

Cons

Basically none, although there was a slight problem with the interface at first, because there's no help file. However, the entire thing is rather self-explanatory, and I got the hang of it really quickly.

Summary

AdBlock Plus is an extremely helpful program that blocks all of those annoying popup ads. I can recommend it to anyone with no reservations whatsoever, as I makes life on the Web a lot easier.

"I love this for personal use!"

April 08, 2013  |  By NevynHira

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

It makes browsing a whole lot more pleasant.

Cons

Funnily enough, the advertising. It presents you with a nag screen upon installation asking you to donate money (and also has a link within the popup menu saying "Did you know I do this for a full time job?").

In terms of deployment, this is a mess. Depending on your context (for me, it's school children), this could possibly be a real problem. Do you really want your users to be presented with a screen asking for them to pay money?

Summary

For personal use, this extension rocks the party that rocks the party. For large deployments, it's a bummer that it's own advertising makes it unsuitable.

"An excellent ad blocking filter."

February 17, 2013  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.60

Pros

Very comprehensive; just install it; select your filter subscriptions; enable it; forget it. AB will take care of the rest automatically. Filters better than other similar products.

Cons

None at this time.

Summary

Try it with your Chrome Browser. It's free, but if it meets your expectations, make a donation to the AB author.
