Say goodbye to pesky mobile ads as Eyeo, the team behind AdBlock Plus, have released a new beta of an Android browser that disables all those annoying ads that stop you actually browsing the web.
Eyeo GMBH, the company behind the popular web browser addon, AdBlock Plus, is rumoured to be creating a full on web browser for Android, for release on May 20th.
Makers of the popular Adblock Plus browser extension have reportedly been sued by multiple marketing companies and media outlets for affecting their advertising business model for websites.
AdBlock Plus has announced that it will no longer support Microsoft's older Internet Explorer 6 and 7 web browsers, citing their low market share and turning off the TLS 1.0 protocol by default in IE6
The well known Internet adblocking service AdBlock Plus announced today that only 9.5 percent of the advertisers that apply for exemption end up being whitelisted by the group.
If you use Internet Explorer to surf the waves of the web but have been lusting after the Adblock Plus plug-in for other browsers, it's time to rejoice, as it is now available for IE.
More shady goings on from Google! A new report claims that Google is paying Eyeo, the company behind the popular AdBlock Plus browser add-on so that Google's own ads are not blocked by the software.
AdBlock Plus has launched a preview version of their popular ad-blocking browser extension for Internet Explorer, enabling those who can't stand ads to block them using a rough-around-the-edges tool
Recently removed from the Google Play store along with all other adblocking apps, Adblock Plus, is back on Android handsets. However users will have to side-load the app to use it.
Google has quietly removed a number of apps designed to block web advertisements from its Google Play store this week, telling one company that such apps interfere "with another service or product."
Adblock Plus, the popular browser plug-in that eliminates ads from your PC web browser, has launched for Android... and it'll even remove those pesky ads from your smartphone and tablet apps.
