Imagine an advertising corp breaking an ad blocking app...say it ain't so?
Maybe Gorhill will go back to supporting the XUL browsers again.
AdGuard for Windows.
It blocks ads at network protocols level so they never reach any browser.
haha I'm using Adguard Premium here and never had issues simply fantastic
Thanks Mr X and Tiger-1 for this recommendation about Adgaurd. I've never had a chance to check that one out, I also do not use Google's Chrome browser either, but there are many that like this browser which is provided by an advertising corporation
haha I also Joe C no longer use Chrome only Firefox and Tor
PiHole, blocks ads before they reach the PC (Or any device connected to the network)
downloaded adguard straght away. thanks for the info, mr x. the hell with google!
No hay problema.
Be sure to download AdGuard for Windows not the AdGuard Browser extension.
For geeks there's also betas at your leisure, pretty stable.
yep dude also is good see this one https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForWindows/releases/tag/v7.1.2817.0
Yes and I think this is the best solution so far although not easy to setup a config like this, at least not easy for me.
Ah it's pretty simple, just write a Rasp Pi OS image to an SDCard like you would a Windows ISO, stick it in a Rasp Pi, boot it up, open Terminal and copy/paste one line from the PiHole website, that will install PiHole on the Rasp Pi, once you've gone through some fairly basic settings you just point your router's DNS to the IP of the Rasp Pi and you're done
Can likely be done on any Linux box not just a Rasp Pi
PiHole works on debian, great
PiHole, Supported Operating Systems
The following operating systems are officially supported:
Distribution Release Architecture
Raspbian Jessie / Stretch / Buster - ARM
Ubuntu 16.x / 18.x - ARM / x86_64
Debian 8 / 9 - ARM / x86_64 / i386
Fedora 28 / 29 - ARM / x86_64
CentOS 7 - x86_64
Whitelist and Blacklist are your friends, and mass blocklists can be added via settings, you can also use it as your DHCP server if you want to disable that in the router
If something stops working, check the query list page and see what the latest block was, chances are it was that and you can just hit "Whitelist" to allow it
Thank you MrMagic
One of the many reasons why I don't use Chrome - ever.
- Brave, Vivaldi as well as (some) other Chromium based browsers will still continue to allow ad-block
- The manifest comes first in place starting with Chrome 80+
- You still can use AdGuard Home for global based blocking or use AdGuard to inject their method in order to get ad blocking into Chrome. it's also unclear if people are not able to "unlock" ad-blocking support somehow, Enterprise users can "unlock" this feature, the information that ad-block entirely was removed is simply wrong, normal users are simply not permitted.Pi-Hole itself will drop hosts blocking too, it's inefficient and gets replaced, however AdGuard Home was always better than Pi-Hole.
The ranting against Chrome is unnecessary, this does not solve the "support" question, content creators as well as bloggers need revenue. Donations via Paypal are critical since you expose more to PayPal and the website you like to support. Only brave comes with the Crypto idea. However, every "solution" comes with a drawback.
Yes, I'm going to sue Adguard for slowing down my broadband speed!
I'm sorry, but what do you use or recommend? I personally do not know of any other browser that runs on Windows.
