    AdBlock Plus is going all out with its own web browser on Android for release on Wednesday May 20th. Is it true? Click here to read more.

    Interesting. I wonder if Google would allow it in Google Play Store. I think they don't allow ad-blocking apps since they violate terms of service (by blocking legitimate ads).

    Wow never thought about it that way. I just dislike ads, whether in is on Android or Windows PC. Go to the weather channel and you get Dodge Truck ads, go to CBS and you still get 8 commercial ads every 12 minutes of the show you are watching.

    Agreed! But as you can imagine, it is a big part of Google's revenue. I just wish we could have some stricter guidelines on the more gimmicky ads (like those auto-play video ads, or popup ads).

    I hope they do, I would use it instead of chrome and/or firefox if it works. Add blocker plus now has an app (from their web site) for android. Unfortunately, you need to reconfigure your wifi. Could not do on my tab pro (would not allow). I do most of my surfing from there instead of phone. Maxthon browser is supposed to have add blocker built in, I have downloaded it, but have not used it much


    edit: Spent a while using Maxthon (this forum using Chrome or Firefox has adds) on my tab using Maxthon - no adds. Went to several other sites,- no popup adds
    I would say works very well at blocking adds. Not NEAR as polished as Chrome; has a few problems. On yahoo (att.net) the sponsered adds in news feed would still show, but when click on link - " web page not available" would show instead of the content. May not be usable on smaller screen (phone) because goes to full web page instead of web version. Some setting may change this; I did not spend much time in the settings.
