Documentation note Developers should see the [https://adblockDevelopers should see the [ development builds section], the [ project roadmap], and the [ contribute page]. Users can use the [ forum] and the [ documentation]. Adblock Plus shows “acceptable ads” by default, which works against the purpose of the add-on.

By default, nonintrusive ads aren't blocked in order to support websites. The add-on is supported by over forty filter subscriptions in dozens of languages which automatically configure it for purposes ranging from removing online advertising to blocking all known malware domains. Adblock Plus also allows you to customize your filters with the assistance of a variety of useful features, including a context option for images, a block tab for Flash and Java objects, and a list of blockable items to remove scripts and stylesheets. Starting with Adblock Plus 2.0 there is an option in Filter Preferences to allow some non-intrusive advertising. The goal is to support websites using non-intrusive ways to advertise and to encourage more websites to do the encourage more websites to do the same.
