Adblock Edge
***This addon has been discontinued

Reason: Discontinued in favor of uBlock, a general purpose blocker, that not only outperforms Adblock Edge but is also available on other browsers and, of course, without "Acceptable Ads Whitelist". Ublock Origin is also recommended, the main difference with Ublock is that "advanced mode" is available. This page will be kept for archival purposes. You can still contact me on GitHub or Bitbucket as Adstomper.***

***However, this add-on is still useful for Icedove until uBlock have been Icedove compatible. -***

Adblock Edge is a fork of the Adblock Plus version 2.1.2 extension for blocking advertisements on the web.

Adblock Edge was primarily branched off from Adblock Plus 2.1.2 source code package created by Wladimir Palant. It attempts to block all ads, unlike Adblock Plus which no longer blocks unobtrusive advertising by default.
