The only way to take advantage of the Adblock Plus functions is to integrate the respective add-on with a web browser. The project provides extensions for Firefox, Opera, Safari, Internet Explore, or Google Chrome. Moreover, you can also install the Adblock Plus on your Android device.

Once the procedure is over, when you browse the internet using any of the web browsers supported by Adblock Plus, the visited websites will not include banners, video ads, or popup windows.

Keep unobtrusive adds to support developers

Note that Adblock Plus includes and “Acceptable Ads” criteria that identifies the advertisements that are not invasive: you can leave those enables to support websites that need advertising to provide a certain service.

The extension considers as being acceptable static ads, the ones that include only text, the banners that are placed in a sensible manner so they don’t block the webpage content, and so on. Even though the “Allow non-intrusive advertising” function is enabled by default, you can easily disable it via the Adblock Plus Preferences window.

Adblock Plus is a great tool to have around if you do not want to spend your Mac’s resources for displaying obtrusive ads and banners: the service comes with extensions for most popular web browsers, and can be quickly integrated with your apps without too much hustle.
