    "Excellent!"

    August 20, 2013  |   By Felstein613

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.6.4

    Pros

    This programme does everything it says and more! I didn't expect it to block everything and it does! I no longer dread video sites or FB. I love this product and highly recommend it to everyone, unless you enjoy the annoying ads, lol then yes yes yes Adblock is here!

    Cons

    No cons that I have discovered.

    Summary

    "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 8, 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.

    "Great little ad blocker"

    January 28, 2013  |   By Noniboots06

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.56

    Pros

    only downloaded adblocker for chrome today & its blocked the ads on facebook, 3player, rte player & youtube so im really impressed so far. I havent noticed any speed loss on my net & you can have the icon sitting on your browser so its easily disabled when needed.

    Cons

    only cons i have found which isnt really a problem was when I went onto car zone or auto-trader I couldn't see the car photos & the site went jus more or less to text but it was easily solved by disabling it while i used them sort of sites.

    Summary

    All in all a great little program which does exactly what it says...

    "Adblocking is good, but there are better ones out there"

    July 3, 2012  |   By adblockfan

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.37

    Pros

    Good interface, easy-to-use

    Not as powerful and fast as the Plus-Version (AdblockPlus), which is also available for Chrome

    I wouldn't ever browse without an ad blocker any more!

    "MADE COMPUTER FAST TOO"

    June 29, 2012  |   By restorationgirl

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.37

    Pros

    Outstanding. Couldn't be happier with this. Don't forget to donate to the creator if you feel like it is valuable to you like I do!

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing - unless you don't like peaceful surfing. (The other con is: there's nothing to black out ads & mute the volume on my t.v. That would make me super happy.)

    Summary

    Got this because I had a teddy bear walk across my computer screen between the glass of the monitor and the website I was trying to read & he spray painted TED on the 'glass window' I was looking through.... apparently this is a Flash ad for a movie. I was fed up with ads hijacking my computer enjoyement. I got AdBlock & instantly all of the flashing lights in multicolors, grotesque computer generated images, ads taking over my window, & any other headache producing 'click on me' attention grabber was GONE. When you sign out of FB there's always an ad - it's gone now too - just a blank area where it used to be.

    "This is Great!"

    June 26, 2012  |   By ExitDude7

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.37

    Pros

    Awesome! Blocks 95% of advertisements on websites!

    Cons

    Slows down your browsing by a BIT, but nothing major.

    Summary

    This is great! It even blocks many advertisements on YouTube that come before videos. Also it blocks many advertisements on other websites. Saves you lots of time finding real download buttons, and watching videos.

    June 11, 2012  |   By ElObomo

    Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.5.34

    Pros

    Blocks all the annoying adverts that make surfing a bad experience.

    Cons

    Doesn't block all the stupid comments I see on CNET.

    Summary

    WELL DONE!!! Make a donation to this guy for coming up with THE solution to nasty adverts.
