Editors' Review

Download.com staff

Adblock Plus for Chrome for Mac performs well as a basic add-on, and would be a useful addition to most users' browser toolkits.

Adblock Plus for Chrome for Mac is free and installation is quick and painless, with no user interaction required. Operating in the background during browsing, the add-on did not have any interface or visible technical support. During our testing, the program did block more obtrusive ads from sites like YouTube and Facebook. As indicated with the add-on, some basic advertisements can be seen, since the program is designed to encourage less invasive promotions. The add-on as a whole operated well and did not appear to slow down the browsing experience.

For those who want an effective advertisement blocker for the Google Chrome browser, Adblock Plus for Chrome for Mac works well in the background and is a welcome add-on for the browser.

Developer's Description

Block all annoying ads on the web.
Adblock Plus for Google Chrome blocks: banners, youtube video ads, facebook advertisements, pop-ups, all other obtrusive ads. Adblock Plus is a community-driven open source project, and hundreds of volunteers are contributing to the success of Adblock Plus to make sure that all annoying ads are automatically blocked. Please note: When installing Adblock Plus for Chrome, your browser shows a warning that Adblock Plus for Chrome has access to your browsing history and data. This is a standard message, we never collect any information whatsoever. Recently, the Adblock Plus community introduced the Acceptable Ads initiative. By allowing some small and static ads, you support websites that rely on advertising but choose to do it in a non-intrusive way. This feature can be disabled at any time.
