AdGuard Browser extension for Chrome

Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers on the Internet. For over a decade, Internet Explorer dominated the web browser landscape, only competing with Mozilla’s Firefox and Apple’s Safari after Microsoft effectively crushed Netscape. This has changed radically since the introduction of Google’s Chrome in December 2008, an open-source app that now claims over 66% of the browser market. Let’s look at why users and developers have embraced Chrome and why it’s overtaken Internet Explorer and Firefox in such a short time. In addition, we will recommend you the best free ad blocker for Сhrome.

So, why is Chrome so popular?

The most important thing about Chrome is that it's much faster than other browsers. It starts more quickly than Internet Explorer or Firefox and it has a special engine that downloads web pages in less time. In comparison with other browsers, Chrome provides a better navigation experience.
What’s more, Chrome has a user-centric approach from Google. If you use Chrome on a single computer at work and then use another device at home, you’ll have the same browsing history and plugins as long as you’re signed in with the same Google account. It's very convenient. But Chrome is popular not only among its users, but also among developers. A benchmark test on demonstrated that Chrome has 505 out of a possible 555 points. In contrast, Firefox had 458 and Internet Explorer had 372 points. This test shows a web browser's accuracy in implementing HTML5 and Web SQL Database web standards, as well as the WebGL standard. What’s more, Chrome has Developer Tools that make developers' life easier by informing about issues. But even such a great and functional browser can’t protect you from all types of adware but AdGuard can.

Hun Ha Block all the ads in internet. Great software.

Sarah Phiri Really nice and annoyance relieving.

iwantgizmos Adguard is what you need to get rid of ads. Free version only works in safari. But get the paid $5/year version and it works in all other apps -- including other browser apps. This app is worth it. The app premium version is definitely worth paying1
