    Great to hear! Using an ad blocker on IE11, I went without for a bit and was shocked to see how much intrusive garbage some so-called "respectable" sites (Forbes.com, anyone?) were shoveling onto me.

    Now if only phone had extension support. Edge is practically unusable when trying to use Continuum for phones to browse a desktop site on a large screen, mostly because of how long ads take to render.

    I'd also prefer uBlock Origin instead of Adblock / ABP, but anything is better than nothing.

    Now where's that LastPass extension? The WinRT app is a mess.

    I'm a big fan of Adguard, even though it's a paid solution. Has many more features which are nice and well worth the money.

    Curious: such as what extra features? Freeware AdBlock seems to do everything I want an ad blocker to do.

    It's got a very nice stealth mode. You can block any webpage elements which is awesome when you go to websites with a ton of clutter, video boxes, or those annoying menu buttons that follow you around as you scroll. It's also system wide ad blocking so no ads anywhere such as apps. It may or may not be worth it to some as it's a paid solution, and I happened to hit on their 40% sale which is over.

    That seems like the same thing as AdBlock filter lists? I can block specific elements on specific pages. The adblocking within apps is cool, but I really don't use any Windows apps enough for me to desire that.
