Online advertisements can become really annoying and might beg for an ad blocker. Adblock Plus is one of the most popular browser extension all over the world and is a great solution to blocking ads. Up until now, those who were Internet Explorer, had to rely on a beta version of Adblock Plus. The software is now officially out of beta and can be downloaded and used on all Internet Explorer versions, from 6 to 11.

Internet Explorer still remains a browser with so many users all over the world and it’s weird that AdBlock Plus was made officially available for download only now. Internet Explorer users who really wanted to try Adblock Plus on their computers had to use the Beta or prereleased version. But those version had bugs and posed security threats to your system.

Adblock Plus Finally Comes to Internet Explorer

Adblock Plus addon for Internet Explorer will block advertisements, annoying banners, video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, flashy banners, ad block plus internet explorerpop-ups, pop-unders and much more. It has definitely more functions than Internet Explorer as the browser offers only built-in tracking protection and InPrivate filtering. Advanced users can even set up Adblock Plus to block domain spreading malware, thus adding an extra layer of protection against viruses, Trojan horses, worms and adware.

Till Faida, managing director of Adblock Plus said the following:

We have been available for years on Firefox, Chrome, Android and Opera, but we could no longer ignore Internet Explorer users. If we want to change the world, we need to support one of the largest web browser communities in that world, and that that’s still IE. Our goal is to ‘make the Internet better for everyone’ by encouraging websites to run user-friendly, responsible advertisements instead of intrusive banners, overlays, and pop-ups. Users can still opt to white-list certain sites, but we created Adblock Plus to give every user control over which kinds of ads they are willing to accept, and then we block all the rest.
