  2. Popular and efficient blocker for Chromium, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Thunderbird.
    • Open Source
    uBlock Origin (not to be confused with uBlock or µBlock) is a stellar extension that runs on a wide variety of browsers. But be careful which version you’re installing — those with similar names are not the same program. The project went through several name changes as different people contributed or modified it, but the most advanced version and the one sustained by the original creator is uBlock Origin.

  3. Ad blocker for Chrome, Safari and Opera on desktop and Safari for iOS devices.
    AdBlock is an incredibly popular extension. It has widespread use across all browsers and has been around for a long time. The extension features a very simple interface without too many frills, but it gets the job done. Don’t get it confused with AdBlock Plus, Adaware AdBlock, or any other interesting name variations — it should have the red hexagon logo and be called “AdBlock” only.

  4. AdBlock Plus is a browser extension for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and several other popular browsers that prevents intrusive ads like pop-ups and malicious code from appearing on websites you visit.
    Adblock Plus (again, not to be confused with any variations on its name) is a standalone ad blocker that’s been around for quite some time. It is not the premium version of another ad blocker or a special edition. Adblock Plus is its own application.

  5. Privacy Badger blocks spying ads and invisible trackers. How is Privacy Badger different from Disconnect, Adblock Plus, Ghostery, and other blocking extensions?
    • Open Source
    Privacy Badger is a unique extension. It is not a traditional ad blocker, and will not automatically block ads on the pages you visit. Instead, it functions more on a need-to-block basis. It pings all ads on a page with a “do not track” request. Ads that don’t comply with the request, or trackers that appear on three pages or more, are then blocked automatically by Privacy Badger.

  6. Adguard AdBlocker browser extension, see review on Medium.
    AdGuard AdBlocker is a browser extension from AdGuard, which also makes mobile ad blocking applications and ad blocking software for Mac and PC. The extension is free, but will immediately ask you if you want “premium protection”, AKA if you want to buy one of their software licenses, which will set you back around $2 a month (or $50 for a lifetime license).

  7. Poper Blocker is an extension for Google Chrome that blocks the popups and popunders whenever you enter in a website or visit a page.
    Poper Blocker is great when it’s relevant, but it was hard to test this extension because pop-ups are surprisingly difficult to find on most modern websites and web browsers. Most browsers already have a built-in, and enabled by default, option to block pop-ups on all pages. Theoretically, Poper Blocker could fill in any gaps, but it might never have the opportunity to do so.

  9. Ka-Block! is a special adblocking extension for the Safari browser so it can be used by the OS X users only.
    • Open Source
    For Safari fans who want a simple and easy experience, Ka-Block! is a reasonable choice. It’s built specifically for Apple products and is extremely lightweight. Just download it from the Mac App Store. Once you do, you’ll have to enable it in SAFARI > PREFERENCES > EXTENSIONS.
