AdBlock Plus Returns to Android So You Can Surf Ad-free

AdBlock Plus, the company behind the popular ad-blocking browser extension, released AdBlock Browser Wednesday — a mobile browser for Android that has the company's ad-removing service baked in. The new app comes more than two years after Google removed AdBlock's first Android app from Google Play. AdBlock Browser isn't available through Google Play yet, but any Android users can get their hands on the beta version by joining this Google+ group and following the download instructions. The company says it hopes to eventually have an iOS version of the app as well. The browser's default settings block all ads that don't meet specific guidelines for "acceptable ads." The company has a whitelisting process that automatically unblocks ads on certain sites that meet its criteria for being non-intrusive, users can also choose to opt out of all advertisements in the app's settings.
