AdBlock Plus (ABP) is among the most popular ad blockers, with versions available for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. ABP features a quick setup, loading preset filter lists that allow users to quickly block most ads, as well as the option to filter malware and social media buttons. Savvy users can chose additional block lists as well as set custom filters or whitelist their favorite sites to keep their ad revenue in the black.

Users can stick with the default block lists, subscribe to additional ones, or even create their own, as well as white list their favorite websites. As one of the most downloaded Chrome and Safari extensions, AdBlock has the trust of many users worldwide.
