Adblock plus is a con and should actually be called AdBlock plus ads because the fact of the matter is this “ad blocker” is just getting paid millions of dollars by big online advertising companies such as Google to display “acceptable” ads to you and plans to take this even further and screw us all over!
Adblock plus has just announced that it plans to not block ads but will instead replace ads that it deems bad with ads that it gets paid for instead.. This means instead of the website owner getting any ad revenue for their content ad block plus will instead steal the publishers revenue with its own ads instead.
Not only is ad block plus screwing with web publishers but it is also deceiving its users to click on ads because once you have installed the program many will automatically assume that all content that they will then see online will be totally be ad free and may click on an add thinking that it is not an ad.
I say boyoctt ad block plus all together and use one of the many free alternative out there that actually block ALL ads and not just the ones it aint getting paid to not display. One really good alternative that does everything ad block plus does is Ublock origin which available for FREE for firefox and Chrome.:
Or if you know what you are doing you can block anything and everything you like using the hosts file which you can read up more on here http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm
