Adblock Resumes Android Journey to Let Users Browse Ad-free

May 28, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The shunning of one Adblock plug-in came as a big blow to many of the Android users. They could now hit cloud nine as their beloved ad-blocking plug-in is making a return to the Android platform.

The compensation for its prolonged recess is that this time around, Adblock comes out as a stand-alone browser.

Adblock Browser lets users surf through websites without being bothered by the interference of ads. Developed by Adblock Plus, the app is now returning to Android devices in the form of a beta edition.


The app is not yet listed on Google’s app store, which had it discontinued from the list for “interference with another service or product in an unauthorized manner”.

However, users could get the browser installed from the community page on Google+, where you can also be a beta tester by joining the community.

Adblock features services that let users to get rid of those ads that aren’t acceptable. Users could also opt to shut down non-intrusive apps while browsing with just a few taps under the settings page.

Currently, the browser adopts a layout that is heavily inspired from other browsers. This is due to the fact that Adblock Browser makes use of the open source coding by Mozilla to enhance its browser. The company doesn’t rule out a future version of their own.

If you go through this blog, you would know that the company has been striving to bring about a self-developed browser that would grant it greater freedom to work with its ad blocking plug-ins.
