AdblockPlus

26 posts in this topic

is it possible to have the list used by AdBlockPlus in Maxthon? The current adhunter is somewhat ineffective. But when I use CoolNovo, I'm able to filter out all ads and pop-ups and click-jacks.

Is there a way to port ABP to Maxthon? Or to somehow fuse it with the current adhunter?

Thanks

How do I do that? I'm using Mx 4.1.1.1600 beta. Portable version.

D/load and install the addon. Click the button and select preferences. In the subscription tab select the rules you want from abp and click the download button. That's it :)

It does not work with latests maxthon version 4.1.0.4000, or beta, last update:2012-10-25 ;P

ad-hunter works poorly as well, Maxthon lack most important extensions (addons) :(

Another option is to download the Violentmonkey extension and get some scripts like AdRemover + New Ad Killer for facebook both that you can find on userscripts.org

I really hope there's AdBlock Plus for Maxthon.. the browser seems to be light compared to other browsers.. but I'm not a fan of ads.

Could you please give an example of where it's not working? I KNOW that it is working on my machine, most certainly on the sites I visit such as FB, google news, yahoo, etc.

And when I do come across an ad I can use Noads to block them with a simpe click, not always, but most of the time.

Well actually i have tried 3 forms for block ads on Maxthon,

No Ads, it make my maxthon a little slowly maybe my pc.

Violent monkey + scripts fast but doesn't block all ads depends on the web.

URFilter being using this for a bit with Fanboy list and 0 issues blocking ads, it even got a pornographic filter. :p

It would be nice to see this implemented to make the Ad blocker more friendly and less dependable on addons.

I noticed the slow down with No Ads as well (doesn't block everything like Adblock like Youtube video ads), haven't tried Violent monkey and URLFilter didn't seem to work on some ads (like Youtube)

Adblock is the only thing holding me back from using Maxthon as my main browser. Everything else seems great so far, I actually like it better than Firefox.

Hey Imanerd thanks for AdFender suggestion!

Finally something that works on Maxthon, though I'd prefer native support/extension. Not a fan of adding more software for something simple as blocking ads but AdFender is free and works well enough (Adblock Plus still better :p).

Iv also had problems with noads extensions the more you block the more Maxthon becomes sluggish, plus it is outdated.

Currently AdFender does not filter https requests (source: Adfender support).

Same here, it's not filtering https. Blocks partially, I don't see the ad, it's the ones with X click to close ones so far.

For the average user, Ad-Hunter in its standard guise is pretty poor. To block a decent range of ads and pop ups requires a user to delve into what is probably a more technically challenging area than what they are comfortable with. I'm sure that this is an area that could be better managed by the powers that be.

What do you think ?
