The all-star adblocker comes to Chrome

Softonic Editorial Team

Recent changes

  • Better blocking thanks to webRequest API (requires in Chrome 17)
  • Changed user interface for filter subscription management (an intermediate step towards porting our Firefox user interface)
  • Improved “Add filter” dialog, safe from being manipulated by the web page and with filter editing.
  • Filter data is being stored using File System API, file format identical to Firefox
  • Using the same algorithm for filter subscription updates as in Firefox (proper handling of expiration intervals, download mirrors etc)
  • Added support for subscribing from web pages via abp: links
  • Proper handling of $third-party filter options, top-level domains like are now being considered.
  • No longer putting all our element hiding rules into the document’s DOM

Adblock Plus is based on the same code as the Firefox version and therefore is the most sophisticated adblocker out there as it doesn’t negatively impact the performance of the browser and works most reliably against video ads.

  • Adblock Plus performs significantly better on, is faster and more powerful than similar add-ons
  • User interface could be improved
