Alternatively known as ABP, AdBlock Plus is an extension that may be added to any of the major web browsers. Its purpose, as the name would suggest, is to block advertisements, effectively keeping them from being displayed to users on the websites they visit. However, unlike its predecessor AdBlock, ABP, by default only blocks "intrusive" ads, which helps those sites that generate revenue through advertising.
Additional benefits over AdBlock:
- ABP blocks tracking, malware, and social media buttons.
- ABP block all Facebook ads.
- ABP blocks all video ads on YouTube.
- ABP allows the user to decide which types of ads to block.
