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!

about Adblock Plus · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

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.

Huge memory usage

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

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

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

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.

your welcome! :)

How did I live without it?

about Adblock Plus · · Helpful Not helpful

The first thing I do after browser installation - I install Adblock. You know, the Internet is really ugly without it. I have no idea, how did I live without it. With all those sticky adds!

Really I have no idea, how did I live without it! Great app for everyday netsurfing. Thanks to developers!

uBlock uses less memory, open source and doesnt want money

about Adblock Plus and Adblock Edge, uBlock · · Helpful Not helpful

That's right Adblock monitized and allowed ads to go through with Adblock. So a lot of people dumped it for Adblock Edge, which was a fork that took out the sell out for money the original Adblock did years ago.

Well now someone has made a better plugin all together from scratch that uses less memory. UBlock is the future, uninstall adblock today and have your browser still block ads, run better and not worry about someone trying to make a buck or selling out and letting ads go through. The development team behind UBlock doesn't even want money donated, thats how committed they are to being open and beneficial to all people on the internet.

If you still install Adblock after all that, well you deserve to get ads they allow from Google and others and your browser to run crappy and crash. It's time to update, Adblock is yesterday and its time to flush the toilet, that turd is smelling horrible and the commode is stained.

Slow, heavy, and marketing behind your back.

The author blocks everyone who use their voice to inform people of better products.
Dump this slow marketingware, and take a look at µBlock, it does all ABP does, but only faster and lighter, and doesn't spy on you behind your back :

Regarding marketingware AdBlock Plus, read this for even more : Google, Amazon 'n' pals fork out for AdBlock Plus 'unblock'

Its always the first plugin I install.

about Adblock Plus · · Helpful Not helpful

Even though the creator took money just to allow some ads through nothing really stops me from changing the filters and adding new subscriptions in order to get rid of those nasty annoying adverts, and those spam/scam/malware sites.

Yes! The first plugin to install! Really so.

The first in the download list on a new device. like this app!

Ignorance prevents the average user from disabling the default enabled UNblocking whitelist in ad"block"plus.
