Adblock: Block ads in Google Chrome
Adblock is a powerful ad-blocker extension for the Google Chrome browser that helps block ads from interrupting your browsing. Inspired by Adblock Plus for Firefox, it features many of the same tools for blocking ads. This extension is incredibly powerful and blocks almost everything, including pre-video ads in YouTube. When it's blocking ads, you'll notice the Adblock logo glow red in your Chrome taskbar.
Adblock allows you to add or delete sites from filter lists within the add-ons panel. It's important to filter sites that you do need flash pop-ups to work on, such as Grooveshark, in order for applications to work properly while Adblock is active. While using Adblock, your pages may appear a bit empty, but it is certainly effective in blocking unwanted ads.
New in version 2.4, Adblock is now more than twice as fast and uses less memory per tab. This update enhances the browsing experience by providing faster and more efficient ad-blocking capabilities.
