Editors' Review

AdsAway blocks ads and other malicious data sent by Internet sites, but it's not as stable as you might want. It sports a skinnable interface, but the Option window is somewhat cluttered. We like the speed at which it works, instantly blocking tracking cookies, advertisements, Web bugs, and other data that could be used for hacking or malicious activities over the Internet.

This application displays the numbers of blocked data. While the option menu provides modification of sound alerts, theme, and such, we encountered several problems during tests. Flaws include loading of sample blocked URLs at a very slow rate, the runtime error that prompted each time we tried to change the interface's style and color, and failure to block pop-ups. With its 15-day trial, there are more robust and far more stable online privacy utilities.
