Adblock is one of the most popular browser extensions out there for blocking ads, and it’s not hard to see why. True to its name, AdBlock not only stops those annoying pop-up ads, but it also blocks other ads you’ll find on websites.
AdBlock is also able to get rid of ads on YouTube and many streaming services, which is something that many ad blockers have trouble with.
What we really love about AdBlock is how you can customize it. The options include preset filters, blocking individual ads, allowing other ads to show, and whitelisting. By default, Adblock comes with an optional “Acceptable Ads” feature that allows certain safe and non-intrusive ads. This can be turned off in the settings if you want to block all ads.
It’s available as an extension on most browsers and is easy to install. The wide number of features in this free application puts it at the top of the list.
