Farewell to annoying ads on the Internet

Adblock Pro is a plugin that blocks and eliminates ads, banners and publicity while you browse the Internet with Google Chrome. It is effective and can be configured the way you want.

Say goodbye to ads on web pages, portals and social networks

Adblock Pro eliminates ads from Facebook, YouTube, Google, Gmail and any other web page. To do this, it uses a system based on filter lists: there are 13 available filters in total (Italian included). By defect, and if available, the plugin will use the specific filter for your language.

Adblock Pro allows you to create a white list, thanks to which you can enable specific ads and publicity sites. For the more advanced users it is also possible to create lists with customized filters.

Good usability

The Adblock Pro icon is set next to the address bar. One click opens a menu, from which you will be able to:

  • De-activate ad blocking for the site you are visualizing
  • Create a new filter
  • Access the option menu (well-organized, intuitive and in Italian)

During the test, Adblock Pro has eliminated ads, banners and publicity from web pages we have visualized. In Facebook, for instance, it eliminates the ads on the side bar, while on YouTube it keeps ads from appearing on videos. In short, it keeps its promises and does not bother you while you browse. Its only defect is its use of RAM, which is a bit hight.

Conclusions

Adblock Pro is a recommended plugin to avoid annoying ads while web browsing. You install it and it thinks of everything, keeping in mind that its default configuration is already perfect!
