Publisher's Description

Adblock is a content filtering plug-in for the Mozilla and Firebird browsers. It is both more robust and more precise than the built-in image blocker. It allows the user to specify filters, which remove unwanted content based on the source-address. If this sounds complicated, don't worry: it's not. Just add a few filters. Every time a webpage loads, it will intercept and disable the elements matching your filters.

It's nice to see the official Adblock (without the Plus) being worked on as well. This is fine (and perhaps advantageous due to its relative speed) if you know your regexp. Adblock Plus just seems more intuitive and easy to use though, plus that has full element hiding abilities.

I've always used this without fail.
adblock + caused high CPU the first time I tried it out.
I have a filter list and never see ads, it does what I want.

After being a fan of Adblock for many months, I tried Adblock Plus, and found it to be more effective and user friendly.

seems faster than adblock-plus, not too sure which one i'd choose so far. Adblock-plus has the features, but is slower, this is ok.

I give this a one for being deceptive: "Now blocks everything -- backgrounds, script-serialized nodes... and yes, even scripts." Adblock does not block divs and further never will according to the authors. I guess divs aren't a part of "everything" though.

i still have to recommend adblock plus .5.x over this.

How odd. This version has been out like 2-3 weeks now.

robmanic44, why run an extra program when this is an integrated extension?

Get a web filter and you won't have to worry about this garbage. Privoxy and Proxomitron are free and they work quite well. Privoxy even works on X64.

I can live with restarting my browser every once and a while if adblock plus has a memory leak. The additional features it has definitely outweigh the fault of the memory leak.

adblock plus has a nasty bug where pages take longer and longer to refresh the longer you have the browser open. It's easy to reproduce, press F5, watch a page reload normally, at the end of the reload, it will "pause" the whole system, use 100% CPU. Very annoying.

Re: ye110mann

At the time of writing this version of Adblock does not appear when I manually update my extensions.

Thanks for the heads-up Betanews.
