If you want the first run page just go to chrome://adblockplus/content/ui/firstRun.html
This works in Firefox, I don't know if it will work in other browsers.

Nice tip.

Thanks.

Annoyed from high RAM usage and whitelisting ads for money

about Adblock Plus and Domain Blocker Nov 2015

So I wrote fast and memory efficient domain blocker which takes ca. 60 MB even with tens of tabs in multiple windows: Small Domain Blocker iconDomain Blocker

Adblock plus has quite extensive database of various filters which is great and hard to beat but I chose different approach - build custom list of domains to block. This way you're active participant of the ad blocking process and it's fun and insane at the same time to discover how many 3rd party services average website uses.

It's more suited for power users who like to have things under their control.

If you didn't know already, adblock has monitized off itself allowing some ads years ago, so I switched to Adblock Edge, but now uBlock is the king. It uses less memory, its open source and they don't want any donations.

Adblock Plus is good but it spikes up Firefox RAM usage. If you have a slow computer, don't use this.

Though Adblock Plus for Chrome can block most Youtube video ...

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Adblock Plus Jun 2011

Though Adblock Plus for Chrome can block most Youtube video ads, it doesn't do a very good job blocking these sorts of ads on other video websites. And just for clarification, when I say "video ads", I'm either referring to the videos ads that play before the main video itself, or to the little banner ads that pop up within the main video while it's playing.

Adblock Plus for Firefox is still king when it comes to blocking video ads in general. If you're watching a video on (for example) Engadget, Adblock Plus on Firefox will block both the ads that play before the main video itself, and the small banner ads that pop up within the main video while it's playing. Neat.

However, on the Chrome version of Adblock Plus, these ads remain (sadly) unblocked. Adblock for Chrome, the main alternative to the Chrome version of Adblock Plus, also has these flaws with video-blocking. In this regard, neither of these two major Chrome adblockers do a very good job. For now, no matter which adblocker you're using on Google Chrome, you're still going to have to watch video ads. Shoot. :P
