Ad Blocker Roundup: 5 Ad Blockers That Improve Your Internet Experience
Ad Blockers are a specific kind of software called an extension, a small piece of software that adds new features or functionality to Firefox. Using Ad Blockers, you can eliminate distraction and frustration associated with online ads popping up in your browser when you’re on the internet.
Extensions can do all kinds of fun and practical things like enabling new features, foreign language dictionaries, or visual appearances and themes. Using different extensions, you can customize Firefox to meet your needs and personal tastes!
But First, A Word of Caution
Many of the most trustworthy add-ons for Firefox come through our website, addons.mozilla.org (AMO), where we have collections of browser extensions subject to approval by Mozilla’s development team and to user feedback and review, as well. We catalogue and organize them for you, so you can find the best resources for your browser and minimize the risk of performance issues.
You can get add-ons from third party sites, but be careful installing any extension, especially ones that are unvetted, free and publicly available, as they could harm your computer.
