Microsoft Edge now has AdBlock Plus built in

Microsoft adds native adblocking to Edge for Android Microsoft Edge now has AdBlock Plus built in
Sandy Mccarthy | 26 June, 2018, 11:55

Microsoft's mobile browser, Edge continues to cross new important milestones on the Android platform.

Native AdBlock Plus integration for Edge will roll out for iOS users in a separate test programme. It's also been added to the iOS beta program. Furthermore, the best part is there's no requirement of installing an add-on to get this functionality as the feature can be enabled by heading over to the browser' settings page. Mozilla also includes ad blocking in Firefox for Android though the feature is only activated while browsing with in-private tabs. The adblocking feature, which is available right now in the Edge Android beta, is likely an effort to change that. Google previously unveiled its own ad blocking in Chrome for Android, but it's not as aggressive as Adblock Plus and most ads aren't blocked on the majority of sites. Now weighing in at 64MB, Microsoft Edge works on Android devices running Android 4.4 and higher. Google's Chrome comes integrated with every Android smartphone and already has over 1 billion installs, while Mozilla Firefox for Android has been installed more than 100 million times.
