Ratings and Reviews
Ok for an extension on the App Store is actually a relatively positive endorsement. I'm still finding the uBlock Origin extension from the Extensions Gallery working much more efficiently and completely, but at least with this new version of AdBlock Plus I am not noticing a huge hit in speed. It also does a pretty fair job at blocking ads and being able to turn off "Acceptable Ads" is a good thing. It still does not block ads in Twitter. I guess Adblock Plus finds them acceptable whether or not you turn off Acceptable Ads.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback and making us aware.
If you are seeing ads despite having Acceptable Ads turned off, this is not feature. It means the website is using circumvention software to get around our Ad blocking efforts. We're always thankful to receive user feedback on this, as it allows us to respond quicker.
does the job
Can't beat the price for getting rid of a major amount of irritating ads
Caused problems, not worth the trouble.
Made safari somewhat slower, but it wasn't too bad. However, soon after I enabled it, I had problems with Safari freezing and causing all sorts of issues across the system. Disabled it, and all went back to normal. Waited a few days, and thought I would try again. Same result, froze safari and ended up having to do a hard shut-down because I couldn't get anything to respond. Not worth the trouble.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
