Limitations

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 co.uk are now being considered.
  • No longer putting all our element hiding rules into the document’s DOM

The free adblock tool for Chrome: Blocks annoying video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, banners and much more.

Block annoying ads for free with the most popular extension ever!

Block all annoying ads on all the sites you visit with the most powerful adblocking tool available! Adblock Plus for Chrome automatically removes ads from YouTube, Facebook, news sites and everywhere else! In order to support free content, non-intrusive ads are allowed by default (so you can still block them all if you want).

Adblock Plus for Chrome blocks:video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, sponsored Tweets, pop-ups, banners and all other obtrusive ads on the web.

Adblock Plus for Chrome also offers extra tools that give you control over your privacy. For instance, you can activate features that block tracking, malware and the social media buttons (e.g. the “like” button) that threaten your personal privacy.

Moreover, the UI has been greatly improved to give you control over your Internet experience. An integrated ad-counter shows how many ads you’re blocking on each page. In addition, the icon now opens a bubble that shows your personal “ad stats” (how many ads have you blocked all-time?), lets you hide specific page elements and enables you to whitelist sites you’d like to support.

The most popular extension ever is used by tens of millions of users everyday. Supported by hundreds of volunteers from all over the world, we make sure that all the intrusive online advertising are blocked automatically.

Adblock Plus is an open source project, which is also available for Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and for Android. Adblock Plus for Google Chrome blocks annoying ads both on Windows and Mac OS X.

A few years back, we introduced the Acceptable Ads initiative. It aims to support websites that rely on advertising by allowing non-intrusive ads that have gone through our whitelisting process. By allowing some ads, you support websites that depend on advertising but choose to do it in a non-intrusive way. You can disable this feature at any time.

Download Adblock Plus for Chrome for free and get the best browsing experience!

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.

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