The Play Store is against apps that affect other apps, not against ad blockers. The Adblock browser doesn't interfere with other apps and is allowed on the Play Store, my guess is that Apple Store doesn't have such a rule and so Apple doesn't care, for now
Do you mean like this? Or just because google doesnt allow apps that interfere with other apps and chrome doesnt allow extensions
They have their own browser: [link]
EDIT: Parent edited their comment, which included a request to show them Adblock Plus in the Play Store.
For those who want adblock without rooting, I would recommend
AdBlock Browser - Android
AdBlock Browser - iOS
I am using it for a while. If you delete built in youtube player, you can view videos from phone without ads.
Downside? Some videos don't play, because "cannot be player on some restricted devices" or something. But it's worth it.
Also, I have some crashes here and there on longer videos (20min+)
If you're crazy enough to try living without root then this will ease a lot of pain:
Source: recently went without root for 5 days.
Reason #1 Europe is upset that no one in the EU can develop an OS anyone wants to pay for
Reason #2 Google gives away their OS for free. But, if you want your device to use the Google Play store instead of your own app store, you have to install their free apps. If you don't like this you can of course start your own store, like Amazon did. But, of course, no one in the EU can seem to do that for some reason.
Reason #3 Money. Google has it and they want some of it in return for the privileged of allowing EU citizens to use Google's products.
No one is forcing the end users of Android products to use Google products. They can download apps from anywhere they like, run any app they like, and if their device manufacturer supports it they can even replace the OS. They can even use another search provider like Yahoo, Bing, Baidu or whatever dominant search engine the EU IT companies create (don't laugh, it could happen). If website owners don't want their content displayed in Google's search engine they can prevent that with a simple robots.txt entry which Google respects when they spider sites. If user's don't want to see Google's ads they can even install a browser like Adblock Browser which you can install right from the Google Play store, or any other android app store that hosts it.
So, ELI5 - EU companies do a poor job of competing, Google gives their stuff away for free, EU wants money for hookers and blow.
Why do people even use Chrome on mobile? I've found AdBlock Browser for Android to be perfectly awesome.
That aside, I'm glad Google is finally doing this, but it's disappointing that the pendulum had to swing so goddamn far into the wrong territory before they actually decided to do something about it.
There's also an adblock browser but Firefox with ublock (and https everywhere and whatever other plugin your want... why chrome didn't do this is way over my head) is better.
What I'm saying is that people who don't install adblock are much less likely to hear of Brave to begin with.
People who do hear of adblock, use one form or another and hear about Brave are likely not going to use it since the problem is solved by adblockers. Or if they do chose to use Brave, at first at least, only a small portion will.
As for the mobile adblockers, there are actually quite a few options.
This is what I use.
I'm not saying the project will fail. Not by a long shot. I very much encourage competition. It's awesome for users. More features, more time spent on development.
My point is, there are a lot of solutions already available, there's nothing wrong with a new player, just don't expect it to take off any time soon.
I'll say this again:
>From an investing point of view that would make me, personally, invest in something else with more potential for revenue.
Personally, I use uBlock. It works for pretty much all browsers on all systems for regular computers. On Android it seems only to work with Firefox and not with Chrome, if I see this correctly. (Although they might have fixed this by now?!)
Apparently, AdBlock has its own browser app. No idea if it's any good, though.
If you're rooted, you can install Ad Away which should block those adverts.
If not, you can switch to Ad Block Browser and do your regular browsing in that.
Other than that, there's not much more you can do other than complaining to the website owner.
There is an adblock browser for android that worked rather well the few times I tried it. It's just another app, you don't need to set a proxy for your wifi or root your phone as was necessary for previous mobile adblocking software I tried.
I've been using the AdBlock Browser ( [link] ) for a couple of sites that I like the content of but are just choked with ads to the point that they're unusable on Chrome. On half-decently made websites, Chrome is OK. There's still lots of unnecessarily crappy mobile sites out there, though. It's weird, all the movers and shakers in Silicon Valley are saying "The future is mobile!" but so many websites (big, popular websites!) don't seem to give a crap. And in general, browsing on a smartphone or even a tablet is never going to be as pleasant as browsing on a computer. I've got an Ipod mini, it's no better for browsing than any of my Android tablets or my OPO.
If you're talking about Adblock Browser for Android, then you're better off just getting Firefox and since Adblock Browser is based on it. My preferred adblocking extension for Firefox is uBlock Origin, which has been shown to have a lighter footprint than Adblock Plus.
that was the name, a browser by Adblock Plus
But SOME youtube videos disable watching the video because it appears to play it through another source to avoid ads.
i think there is a chrome fork that has adblock included (might not be based off chrome)
never tried it though i usually use my desktop for web
This is a huge reason I use all kinds of ad blockers. The ad blocker browser on my phone has saved me a number of times. Just the other day I was actually trying to read something with some rather important information on my phone and I couldn't read it. Opened it up in the ad blocker browser and read it no problem.
Theres a bunch on the playstore [link]
But this is the one I am using. It is the first result. [link]
Make sure you use an adblocker. I use the Adblock Browser on Android 5.1, OPs link doesn't work for it but this does: [link]
You may have to hit slow download - wait for the page to refresh - hit slow download again. This is because of the ads.
Ah, for mobile I really don't have an answer besides Adblock browser. I use it daily. It works well, but it's not a silver bullet.
Apparently there is an ad block browser for iOS and Android. I'm not sure if it works though.. iOS: [link] Android: [link] If you end up trying it out let me know.
Im assuming you use android. If so use adblock browser for android. [link]
If you have a samsung phone they also have a adblock extension for the stock samsung browser.
EDIT: Oh, it's an app app, not a browser app. I'm linking to browser blockers. Whoops. Never ^mind ^^then.
There's also "AdBlock Browser" which is literally Firefox with AdBlock integrated. I was skeptical, but it seems to work perfectly.
Adblock browser: [link]
(You can get ublock origin from the addons page inside the app)
Yep - host file editing is a solid way to do it, but not every phone is rootable (or should be rooted, work phones or where you don't want to bother with the extra security implications for example). There's an official Adblock Plus browser that works fine on phones that aren't rooted.
Obviously you need a device-specific fix for a mobile phone that goes out and about, but this kind of wireless gateway is a good all-round, at-home fix for everything else (and phones on wifi).
They had to be adopted when Internet Explorer was the only option, and both were miles ahead of IE when they released, which is why the adoption was explosive.
I agree with you that getting people to use it on desktop would be a humongous challenge. It offers very little innovation on top of existing browsers.
But even on mobile, ad-blocking browsers already exist (see something like [link] or [link]). It's not like they're doing something new by integrating adblock/tracker blocking in a mobile browser.
The only differentiator is the possibility to make a bit of money from viewing some ads, which to me is extremely meh.
Get an adblocking browser:
Or adblock browser from playstore:
GET ADAWAY if you are rooted of course or just download this browser [link]
they both work to blocking those ads.... if you are rooted then adaway IS A MUST..... I have it and ads are non-existent on my phone :)
and some people might not know this but adaway blocks 3rd party ad networks thus blocking Malware ads yay! it is basically IMPOSSIBLE to get one of those fake av rouge sites IF you have adaway installed it just out right blocks the site Ive tested this extensively.... and it works fucking beautifully.
also there is an ad block browser on the play store which basically is like adaway for browsers only if you are not rooted [link] not sure how well it works since I havent been using it that much cause I have it on my Nvidia Shield TV
well to put it simple I for one don't hate normal ads (by normal I mean the ads that are somewhere in the corner of the page and don't bother me at all) I only hate thous intruding ones like you enter a site and you are redirected to 10k other sites witch are ads or the ones that are in the corner of websites but follow you as you scroll down or the fucking ones that you have to close to visit the site but you fucking can't cause if you click the x button you are redirected to another website so till this bullshit ads disappear from the internet I will have addblock and keep it on !! By the way if you are using an android device and want addblock on it then I suggest take this browser : [link]
Yup. Used it specifically for the manga sites with really intrusive ads that re-directs you to another site/google store every 5 seconds.
I know I'm really late but just in case :)
This isn't the same adblock browser from the guy who made Adblock Plus browser extension. [link] this is the one you want.
> And adblock browser isn't in the Play Store.
List made using List My Apps
Adblock Browser for Android: [link] also available on the App Store
If you're on android, you don't need root anymore.
I wonder how it compares to this one?
Ad block plus has an add free browser you can get from the app store
There's the Adblock Browser, but I'm not sure if it'd work for that or not... it might.
Pour ceux que ça intéresse et qui ne connaissent pas: [link]
doesn't work amazingly though
There is an adblock browser idk about iPhone.
There is an adblock browser
Only thing worth comprehending here is how much you suck at the internet:
Adblock Browser for Android?
The AdBlock Browser is alright. It doesn't work perfectly, but it blocks some ads.
Fear not! Adblock just released a mobile browser (better than mobile chrome, IMHO)
Adblocker has it's own browser for Android and it works great!
You can install something like this:
> hone contract is due to e
I'm dooing fine with Adblock Browser for Android
It's actually it's own browser
For non rooted devices, there's adblock browser. I haven't used it (rooted and use adaway) but people say it works.
Mobile browser made by the AdBlock Plus guys for Android.
Yup, Android has Adblock Browser and you can find it in the Google Play store. It blocks all ads, even on Breitbart.
I use the AdBlock browser
Always use protection [link]
This is a web browser that blocks ads.

Yes. There's ABP Browser, Adguard (not on Play Store) and DNS66 (it's on F-Droid) for Android.
The best one however is AdAway. It's free and open source and blocks ads by directly editing the host files, so it's not as battery hungry as the others, and, no matter what kind of trickery YouTube tries to pull off, the request for the ad page simply won't go through because it's blocked on a much lower level. It also blocks in-app ads (!!). It requires root and is available on F-Droid (app store for free and open source software).
Here ya go
This is what I use and it works fine
I don't know about an app but if you use an adblocker or adblocking browser you might want to check out this site:
EDIT: Forget that link, try this:
EDIT 2: Same selection, different site:
It's based on Firefox and uses the same permissions [link] and [link]
> standard play store app
I mean it's on the Play Store: [link]
Perhaps kissmanga has less ads (but this version is censored :0). If not,
Adblock for Android
Adblock for iPhone
It's for Android and it's an entirely new browser, only option I guess.
Adblock Browser for Android
AdBlock has its own browser for Android that I prefer over the chrome add-on. Here
you can get an adblock browser app and all links become mobile friendly :)
if u have android... this is what i use: [link]
It's apparently its own browser but says it blocks youtube ads
On android at least, download adblock browser then disable the youtube app and it should work just fine.
Yes. Use the app AdBlock Browser.
or adblock browser, which is surprisingly decent.
Adblock Browser is great, and one of the smoothest browsers out there in my experience...
Just download Adblock Browser. It's like Chrome, but with Adblock installed.
There's also [link] which has full extension support.
Adblock browser works well
Alright here you go: [link]
On android? You can use Adblock Browser whenever you hit a site like this one. [link]
Adblock browser. No frigging ads , great.
This one: [link]
You can have an ad-free browser by using AdBlock Browser (which is on the Play Store and I believe is based off of Firefox). If you want to use any browser and adblock, read below.
Probably more in the Play Store.
You CAN adblock without root, but it involves a VPN. There are ones which run locally on your phone and therefore do not impact your speeds because the data is not being re-routed through a server: [link]
Edit: Device-wide blocking is apparently paid; by default it's just within your browsers. A lifetime license is a pretty steep $25 per device (or $10 for a year). I just installed the app to try. Though to be fair on iOS it's within Safari only.
> We use a unique technology that allows filtering the traffic on your device without ROOT privileges. This means that it can Filtering speed does not depend on the work of a VPN server, as it is embedded right in your device.
I use Adblock Browser on an android phone. Works like a charm :)
This one? As far as I know, that's the only alternative based on Chrome, unfortunately.
this seems to be it. i had to dig.
I mean, it is a new app so that may be why it's not really pulling up where it should
Possible, I'm an iPhone user, so I'm mostly familiar with Safari on iOS. But Google Play apparently has an official AdBlock browser for Android which does the same job: [link]
For the enthusiasts, jailbreak away, I don't judge. But I think as a generic advice for security, it's a bad idea. Always check out what the standard OS and app stores offer.
There are a few browsers that block ads on android. This one works pretty well.
Well, mobile adblock?
Adblock has their own mobile browser
How about trying adblock built-in browser?
Edit: nexus 5x here...i cant find ublocker in the play store...
Adblock Browser baby.
Yes you can.
