Best Ad Blocker: Top 7

Rid yourself of those irritating ads with these formidable blockers.

By Tom Ball

The ad blocking space is a prime example of one in which there is a big difference in performance between the many ad blockers available. With such a vast expanse of options available, it could take a great deal of time to arduously sift through – so CBR has done it for you.

We have narrowed it down to these seven options – they span the majority of platforms and while some are extensions for browsers, others can be used across the board. Price is also a factor taken into account; some options are free and provide only a limited service, with the option to upgrade to a premium package for an all round solution.


AdBlock – Free

This service is considered one of the best and most well-known options out there, and it is able to run alongside Chrome, Safari and Opera.

This option functions using a series of filter lists to block ad content automatically from known ad servers and providers. With this ad blocker, the user has the option to either put the default block lists into action, or subscribe to others. There is also an option to create your own list so as to personalise a specific list of sources to block.

On the flipside, there is also a whitelist option that allows you to add your favourite websites, as opposed to choosing ones to repel. AdBlock has gained a global following and recognition as it is among the frontrunners as one of the most downloaded solutions for Chrome and Safari.
