    Again another poor test I think. Show some results with adblock plus on. But they never do.

    Not hard to believe...IE 8 has some good protection in it.
    Against todays malware, the rogues, Firefox with Adblock Plus..well, Adblock doesn't do a thing to protect you against rogues.

    It helps against some popups that get by FF on their own. I put the malware block list in as an adblock filter.

    i think "SmartScreen Filter @ IE8" = "WOT @ FF/Chrome"

    I use it now 'n then. Guess I still use Firefox more...probably just out of habit. I don't see a big difference in performance vs FF.
    To the best of my knowledge the adblocking capabilities for Chrome based browsers is still quite limited. I don't think images and such can actually be blocked (prevented from ever loading). I think everything is just hidden.

    Ya it does only hide them, but its still nice. Hopefully down the road the adblock extension will be mode like adblock plus.

    Yet the visual effect of some, such as AdSweep, yield cleaner sites than even Adblock Plus.

    Of course on many of my clients networks...I stop ads at the gateway, done via Untangle UTM appliance.
