With no doubt, Adblock Plus is the best way to block ads. Being introduced in 2006 as a Firefox-only plugin, today it is by far the most downloaded browser extension in the world, available for free on Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Android OS (Internet Explorer support is coming soon too). Besides being the most reliable solution for blocking ads, Adblock Plus also can be configured to block malware, disable tracking and remove social media buttons from websites. The installation is very easy, and it takes a few seconds:

 

Step 1: Please go to https://adblockplus.org, which is the official website of the extension.

 

Step 2: Hit the big green “Install” button, which will download the extension and install it in a few seconds. (Please note, you will require Firefox/Chrome/Opera, if you do not have one of these browsers, please install this first).

 

After installing the extension, no configuration is required – all annoying ads will be blocked automatically.

These filterlists are constantly maintained by a vast Adblock Plus community, which will ensure that all the latest ads will be blocked too. Also, there is a wide choice of local filters, which block ads on local websites, as well as an option to create custom rules for blocking of whitelisting any elements.
