"This was AMAZING! It's a whole new world. Thanks!"

February 11, 2011  |  By arlenem55

 |  Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

Pros

Norton verified it as safe, it was easy to download and started working immediately. My FB was literally littered with ads in the sidebars, homepage, my wall, my news feed. Many of these ads played simultaneously, driving me BATTTY! No more.

Cons

haven't found any as yet, and don't expect to find any.

Summary

You'd be foolish to not install this simple adblock. Not only did it clear my entire facebook of ads, but made the web ad-free. Thanks.

"Crippled functions, unless you pay."

January 30, 2011  |  By elevated_delinquent

 |  Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

Pros

It's an ad blocker for IE.

Cons

Version 1.0.0 Limits blocking of ads to 100 per day for free version.

Summary

Use a different browser like Firefox or Chrome which you can download Adblock Plus , it's free and probably works a hell of a lot better than Simple Adblock.

"Doesn't block anything. Waste of time. Totally useless."

January 01, 2011  |  By slamb2002

 |  Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

Pros

It installed easily. It uninstalled easily.

Cons

It didn't block anything. It especially didn't block the most annoying type of ad which is the flash animation ads. There are no custom filters, so you can't tell it to block a certain ad in the future.

Summary

This program doesn't block any ads. You can try it and see, or you can just take my word for it. If you like firefox for adblock plus, keep using firefox. If you don't know what I'm talking about get adblock plus for firefox. It's amazing to see an ad free internet. This program just plain doesn't work.

"Loads pages at lightening speed!"

December 14, 2010  |  By CurvedAir

 |  Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

Pros

No awkward set up requirements.
Works straight away.
Can disable ad blocking on chosen sites.

Cons

No option to chose which sites to block ads on.

Summary

I was having trouble with 1 particular forum which I use every day. Pages were taking up to 12 seconds to load because of the heavy advertising. After "Simple Adblock" , pages now load at around 1 second! Brilliant.

It's a pity that there isn't an option to chose which sites to block ads on, as generally I don't find them a problem, so to block them on just this 1 site would have been ideal.

Blocks ads on web pages without affecting the web page content. Does not affect the speed of the page being displayed or the functionality of interactive web pages.

Cons

None so far.

"Good Basic Ad Blocker for Internet Explorer"

November 06, 2010  |  By The_X_File

 |  Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

Pros

Does what it says, it's a basic ad blocker.
Won't slow your browing, at least you wouldnt notice it.
Faster than Adblock Pro, which you have to pay for.

Cons

It uses by default Easylist filter from Adblock plus, which you can supplement with the Easy Privacy filter.
It is not possible to block manually ads that you still can see.

Summary

It's free, works well with ie6,7,8. Will also be coming out for ie9. Probably the best free ad blocker for IE.
