Simple Adblock is an easy to use adblocker for Internet Explorer. Install it, select your country and enjoy. Simple Adblock offers a simple approach to adblocking. There is no need for creating advanced filterlists, just select your country. Adblocking is a technology for blocking ads on webpages, before they are being loaded by the web browser. Advertising can exist in a variety of forms including pictures, animations, text, javascript layers and flash. Advanced filters allow fine-grained control of advertisements through features such as blacklists, whitelists, and regular expression filters.

We follow the development of Adblockplus for Firefox to make sure we use the same filter formats. That way the filterlists maintained by many online communities can be used. Learn more about the adblock filters used.
