Avast! Ad Blocker
« on: October 27, 2013, 03:50:39 PM »
Dear all,
I write to express my worries as to why i do not have Avast! Ad Blocker in the recent avast update. I used to enjoy the ad blocker intergrated in my browser which made me have a great experiences in browsing.

Is there any where that i can get my ad blocker back? or it has been deliberately removed?

As far as I'm aware the feature was removed.

What browser were you using it on ?
If firefox then AdBlock Plus is more configurable and you can add additional blocking databases. Since the avast AdBlock was based on AdBlock Plus, it wouldn't install on firefox if ABP was already installed.
