FadBlock Origin: Friendly YouTube™ Adblock
Item media 1 screenshot


A fast, lightweight, and undetectable YouTube Ads Blocker for Chrome.

A fast, lightweight, and undetectable YouTube Ads Blocker for Chrome. This blocker is designed to monitor advertisements, automatically seek the ads and skip them on YouTube and YouTube Music as well. It's important to note that this doesn't classify as traditional ad blocking, as the ad content is technically "loaded". Nevertheless, the extension's underlying logic enables it to fast-forward through the ad content to its conclusion. The entire process is optimized to occur within an extremely brief timeframe, typically <=50 milliseconds, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted user experience. FEATURES: This extension effectively eliminates all categories of YouTube and YouTube Music advertisements: Category 1: Ads visible on the homepage. Category 2: Ads overlaid atop the suggested video list. Category 3: Ads displayed below the video description. > Starting on April 6th, 2023, the “Overlay ads” ad format will no longer appear on YouTube to help improve the viewer experience and shift engagement to higher performing ad formats on desktop and mobile devices. Overlay ads are a legacy ad format that only served on desktop and are disruptive for viewers. Category 4: Skippable 5-second-must-be-watched video ads, which may be positioned at the video's start, midway, or at the end. Category 5: Ads similar to Category 4, but with two consecutive video ads instead of one. Category 6: Inescapable 10-second video ads, which must be watched. Install now and experience YouTube and YouTube Music the way it was meant to be—ad-free!

YouTube is now somehow detecting and blocking this adblocker as well (https://github.com/0x48piraj/fadblock/issues/194#issuecomment-2144287012). I wouldn't leave a negative review over that normally, as adblockers are always in back-and-forth fights with advertisers, but it is disappointing to see the creator denying the issue no matter how many FadBlock users report experiencing it.
