I love it. It is indeed lightweight as it promised. The best lightweight adblocker. (Edit. Unfortunately I have to deactivate it and activate another adblock while I am on youtube, because it fails to block the video ads on youtube or it half blocks the video ads on youtube making the real video under lagging like crazy. So overall that is great except on youtube.)

I use this Ad blocker and I'm quite happy from my choice to switch from Ublocks. SmartAdBlocker do better job blocking ads, on sites where none of the other ad blockers can't, and even better having better anti detection from sites recognizing the ad blockers.Although sometimes make some sites act funny and unexpected, or not managing to stay undetected. Good things is that lets people report the sites that the blocker fail on, so the devs or whoever maintain it to patch the specific rules fo... Show more

Seems like a good blocker for users that want to install and forget. I suggest you provide more info about what is blocked for advanced users who may wish to use complementary privacy extensions.

i haven't been through with this adblock yet but been using this with and it keeps detecting my open in new tab as popup and block it. It also detect rapidvideo links as popup and block them too. Not so smart if it can only block ads on page. EDIT: I was on Chrome. When clicking with middle mouse button, i ask me wether it's a popup or not. Most of the time it will open the new link in the same tab and make me leave the current page. It's a known thing without AdBlock becoz it w... Show more

Please, add feature to view what is blocked. Not only numbers. And we can see the built-in filters and with the ability to turn them off or on.

Ok, I have used this extension for some time now. All I can say it that you don't have to think about anything. They, the developers will handle everything from their bat cave. If one thing I want to see from SmartAdBlock is that it be an open source extension, so that any other developers around the world can examine its codes. Also, if I can whitelist some sites, that would be nice too. Kudos to all of you that have developed this.
