Just a quick heads up... I've used Microsoft Edge browser for a while now. It has got much better since its first appearance and I actually prefer it over Internet Explorer.

For those who use Microsoft Edge, I've discovered an absolutely fantastic ad blocker that works with Edge.

It completely strips all webpages of ads. It has a little icon at the top which tells you on each page how many ads it has prevented from showing.

Just look at how different these webpages look. What do you see when you click on the link compared to Microsoft Edge with Adbock installed?

It even stops all the ads showing on and in videos as well as between videos on YouTube

I know other browsers also have ad blockers, but it is only recently that Microsoft Edge has allowed extensions and Adblock makes surfing so much better. You can find Adblock to download from Microsoft here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p ... blggh4rfhk

And it is free (Donationware)
