If you've ever dreamt of browsing the web with Internet Explorer without all the annoyable ads, you can finally do that with the new add-on created by Eyeo Gmbh, Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer.
It is very simple to install and easy to customize it to your personal interests. For example, the application blocks pop-unders, banners and ads on Youtube, Facebook, and other sites by default, but you can personalize it to fit your unique browsing needs by adding or removing sites, pop-ups or banners on the filter list.

Another important feature is the Disable Tracking that allows you to hide your online activity and browsing history from the ad agencies. This way you can browse the web anonymously and avoid being spammed.

It doesn't stop here. This add-on is able to increase your computer speed and protect its health by blocking domains that spread malware thus protecting your computer against viruses, Trojan horses, adware, worms, spyware.

Furthermore, if you want to stop social media buttons to send requests to the social network's servers, in order to not allow them to create your browsing profile, you can do that by simply disabling those buttons.

Overall, I would say that nowadays every Internet user needs to have this add-on installed because it helps to make Internet browsing faster, safer and lastly but not least, more ad-free.
