Lightbulb Testing out Ads Killer Adblocker Plus ex AKP

While I have an hour or 2 to spare I'm going to Disable Adblock Plus and see what Ads Killer Adblocker Plus listed on the Chrome store can do by comparison and will that kill/suppress the ads when viewing VPN links AB+ fails on that count = finds a Minority
typical comment

Actually works as intended, was pleasantly surprised. Try it at least once and see how it does away with a lot of those annoying page ads.
I shall do just that and see how it fares

Playtesting:
Testing now and it is working well (Not used any VPN Urls yet) Here is the Stats tag numbers from 10 minutes surfing

Further information. Compare this against Adguard (which is Protecting my Yandex.Browser> free version) and is also listed on the Chrome store (since Spring 2018)and of course AdBlock+ Open the Filter Tab on all of these Apps and a lot of the internal App database links match. OK ,we don't have the AB+ or AdGuard Numbers to Hand (Very large) But without any User addons, the Numbers for Ads Killer Adblocker are 88,047 network filters + 49,795 cosmetic filters and its a 1 click to update on that modest sized list Does not include The White list folder and Personal Filters folders

Also something useful AKA has added a "Block Element" Link on the Right click Chrome menu

This one is a definite Keeper (well made) 10/10

It looks good Mike. I wonder how effective it is compared with something like uBlock Origin which I've always found to be very good?

It is not listed for Tablets so our search continues for something to work reliably with those devices.

Working too good in Places My Facebook Sidebars are total Wipe outs. But can retrieve links using the Address box also some static link Images are being taken out ( work when clicked on)
Nevertheless it is a Good product. and I'll get FB whitelisted on the custom filters

Hmm. It sounds a bit over-zealous! I think I'll stay with what I've got now, I don't usually see any ads anyway.

Have rectified that issue it was due to a Facebook Settings> Option setting. Not this Adblock Program OK?

Have really Tried it out on some sub URLs which are "Noisy" And AB+ "Dealt" with it but some Links remained but Ads Killer somehow managed to squeeze them down further. Not 100% but sufficient for me
As for WU We have a Clear page. Facebook also seems tidier . Am still running this Program @ Default. Deserved kudos to the dev team who are not a listed company ,only contact link is a private Gmail address
