Editors' review

Although we had to track down this free ad blocker after installation, we're pleased with how it works. Adblock instantly prevents annoying ads from appearing while you peruse the Web with your Firefox browser. Strangely, there's no indication of where the program's launcher is placed following installation. After much searching, we found it sitting in the Tools menu of our browser. A submenu list leads to a basic main window to modify what the program calls blockable elements, or the source address of a site and its category and node name. You also can add filters to block ads using wild cards.

We like that you can instantly block ads, page by page, using a hot-key combination. A white list is available to render the ads on specific pages or entire sites exempt from blocks. We weren't pleased with the detective work it took to find this application, but we discovered it's quite useful for controlling the content displayed on Web sites.
