Adguard, takes care of all browsers at once in terms of ad blocking and userscripts.

Advertisement Blocking.
Glorifying the fact in posts here on Neowin is strictly forbidden. We understand that some members could not care less to display advertisements on any website, and therefore block a stream of revenue that is required to keep this site running. We can not do much about that but please do not glorify the fact.

We have a subscription package that professionally removes all advertisements from Neowin for a small annual fee. We never ask members to click advertisements, and for those that do; we greatly appreciate this. Simply allowing the advertisement to load (without clicking on it) also returns revenue for the site. If you feel that you can not whitelist Neowin or afford the subscription but would like to contribute, you are very welcome to donate via PayPal to subscribe@neowin.net and make a post here.

Does it block application ads too and is it free to try?

I thought that was glorifying the fact that you specifically adblock Neowin? I know of several people that claim to put Neowin on their Whitelist for Adblock.

Most people use this but it does not block applications ads. Like in Skype.

Skype doesn't run inside firefox, so no it obviously won't block adverts in skype...

I got rid of AdMuncher when the development went stale and moved to AdGuard.

If I specify applications by process in the browser section, yes (it doesn't matter if it says browser - it'll work for any executable specified). And yes, it's free to try.

ABP for Chrome however, i have some crazy rules setup to whitelist certain websites but block certain elements within them as well as blocking certain websites while allowing certain elements and a whole lot of other stuff in there.
