AdBlock Plus

Adblock Plus is an open source project that blocks annoying online advertising. Created by Wladimir Palant in 2006, the browser extension has been downloaded over 250 million times and is available for Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera and the Android operating system. The company Eyeo GmbH was founded in 2011 by Palant and Till Faida to manage this project and to develop similar solutions. The extension manages a group of filter and exception lists, maintained by an open source community of over 27,000 members.
