Dark side

So now AdBlock officially announced he will make his own database with an "OK" advertisments and we will anyway have to listen to them.. Pretty dark side of an AdBlock if you ask me. Need alternatives fast

Not as good as Ublock Origin!

I used to like this plugin, than Ublock was created. There is actually a wannabe version of ublock too, so look for the original, Ublock Origin!

This addon is just not that good, it works but not great quality.

Garbage

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.

unfortunately adblock plus is currently synonymous with false adblocker. I do not know what agreement they have reached or with whom, but it is sure that they are reporting income. Very bad.

Huge memory usage

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

Works great for most web sites. Their customer service is really on top of things, since I had a question about Facebook and they gave me some good information.

I always install a combination of Adblock Plus and Ghostery on my machine, and it takes care of almost every ad that I come across while browsing. There is the occasional ad that it misses, which can quickly be remedied by selecting it with ADP.

Since I have learned there is such an extension for Google Chrome , I do not spend time dealing with advertising.

ad"block"plus UNACCEPTABLE default allows 3rd party ads by paid whitelist

about Adblock Plus · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

ad "block" plus forces 3rd party ad rendering by paying to be on a whitelist which is enabled by default

Wladimir Palant has made himself untrustworthy with his inane "acceptable privacy violation" defaults.

3rd party ads sell privacy for profit: this is ALWAYS UNACCEPTABLE.

ublock origin is the only remaining adBLOCK project with a focus on BLOCKING and safeguarding PRIVACY

Mind your browser's ram consumption

about Adblock Plus · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Adblock became the king of adblocking and did a good job -although it takes more time to load a site without ads than one with most ads showing- but recently they introduced plans for advertisers to profit from what adblock calls non-invasive ads.
Shifted to open-source ublock origins for a faster, lighter, non invasive option.

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.
