    Thumbs up Adblock for Edge

    Here is an Adblock which works with Edge Browser. It also works with Opera & Chrome.
    It has a disadvantage in that it leaves a blank space where the advert should be.
    The normal Adblock Pro when used with Chrome & Opera will override it and is not effected.
    As it is a Registry entry, please back up the Registry before you install it.

    You will find the file at http://kenyapages.net.nz/downloads
    The file is EdgeAdblock_10.zip

    I have used this for a while now with no adverse effects.

    Sounds like it just does the same as using the hosts file - which works for all browsers.
    Personally I'm sticking with FF and Adblock plus for the moment.

    I switched to U block origin on FF seems to let the pages render a little quicker than Adblock did

    Not sure, but AdMuncher may do the trick. It basically acts as a proxy server on your PC, so should work across all browsers.

    Can someone tell me please, are ad blockers illegal? It makes sense to me for them to be against the law but they're so widely used that it seems like they aren't?
