Editors' Review

Oh, sweet, sweet Adblock. We loved you in Firefox, and Adblock for Chrome is just as wonderful. Who knew that one little browser add-on could make surfing the Internet so much more enjoyable?

Adblock does exactly what its name implies: it blocks ads. Pretty much all of them. Banner ads? Yes. Those crazy annoying Flash ads that seem to be popping up everywhere? You bet. Facebook ads, Google ads, pop-up ads? Check, check, and check. Using the Internet with Adblock is oddly peaceful; all you see is the content you're looking for, and not all the distracting clutter that we've grown accustomed to. A small notification in the bottom right corner of the screen lets you know when a pop-up has been blocked, and you can choose to have Adblock stop blocking pop-ups from individual sites if desired. Using Adblock also results in the practical advantage of faster page loads, which is always a plus. This extension offers plenty of options for customization, allowing users to specify domains for which they don't want ads blocked, select specific filters, and submit ads that Adblock missed. Like most browser add-ons, Adblock doesn't have a Help file, but it's pretty straightforward. We found Adblock to be very effective and easy to use, and we highly recommend it to anyone seeking a smoother, less cluttered Web-browsing experience.

Adblock for Chrome is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this add-on to all users.

"Worked fine then just went crazy"

January 08, 2015  |  By jelena.mikic.338

2015-01-08 03:03:16  |  By jelena.mikic.338

 |  Version: Adblock for Chrome 2.15

Pros

The AdBlock worked great in the beginning and I was super happy. It was blocking most of the ads and made surfing a lot more enjoyable.

Cons

It first started not blocking a certain amount of ads. After that, it started showing the same three banners on each and every website I visited and eventually led to completely disabling my browser for normal usage.
