Adblock Browser 1.0.0 Final
Overview: AdBlock Plus releases an ad-blocking browser app for Android.
AdBlock has never been in the browser business beyond providing plugins to help you get rid of ads, but the company is breaking the mold with their latest app. They have released a beta version of AdBlock Browser for Android.
The premise and promise are simple: you browse the web, except you do so without any ads mucking up the experience. Early usage reports suggest it’s just as fast and capable at browsing the modern mobile web as Google Chrome and Firefox Mobile, so there shouldn’t be any qualms using it if you value it for its ability to block ads.
Follow the instructions below, OTHERWISE IT WON’T WORK!
Before you download Adblock Browser to your Android device, make sure app installation from unknown sources is allowed by Android:
