    "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.

    Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

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

    January 1, 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.

    "Works Great!"

    November 30, 2010  |   By L0A3W3cw

    Version: Simple Adblock 0.8.6

    Pros

    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 6, 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.

    Pros

    As I couldn't get it to operate, I have no Pro's.

    I chose another product.
