An adblocker for Chrome or Firefox is an extension (or add-on) to your browser, which adds functionality to your browser so it can filter content. Adblockers itself have no functionality, in the sense that they do not block anything until it is \"told\" what to do. The so-called filterlists tell the adblocker what to block. These filterlists, are basically an extensive set of rules, which tell Adblock Plus what to block. The lists are created and maintained by a large online community.
Granted, uBlock Origin did not block the most ads on the PCMag homepage. In fact, it was the least among the top four contenders. However, it blew the others out of the water on the PCMag review page. We didn't see ads on YouTube with uBlock Origin, and it got stellar scores with adblock-tester and Cover Your Tracks. For sheer brute force ad-blocking, uBlock Origin is the best.
Ghostery brings strong design and protection together into a smart package that does a good job blocking ads and provides enormous insight into what is tracking you and how. We were also impressed that it earned a perfect score from adblocker-tester and did a good job blocking trackers. It did not, however, outperform uBlock, Privacy Badger, or AdBlock Plus in terms of sheer number of ads blocked.
Adblock Plus, which has a user base of over 50 million, released its own browser for Android in May, citing the increasing amount of annoying and potentially dangerous malware-infested ads on mobile. Meanwhile, Apple announced the iOS 9 version of its extremely popular mobile web browser, Safari, is coming with a built-in adblocker. Adblock Plus is also working on a browser of its own for iOS 9, according to Ben Williams, communications manager at Eyeo GmbH, the company behind Adblock Plus.
In general, adblocking has exploded during the past couple of years, thanks in large part to browsers like Google Chrome (which allow for a hassle-free installation of adblockers) and increased awareness surrounding the product. According to adblocker monitoring company PageFair, the total monthly user base will top almost 250 million worldwide this year.
Adblock Browser allows you to browse the internet slowly while saving data thanks to the lack of advertisements. An adblocking browser ensures that you won't see any advertisements during your time spent on the internet. Occasionally there will be ads that slip through, but most pop-ups and other cluttering posts remove themselves from sight.
