    In answer to the question in your title, I didn’t know anyone was still using IE.

      There are plenty of people that use it. On the Surface Pro 2 I love the touch version. It is really easy to use and well designed for touch.

      On my desktop, I use it as my secondary browser.

      Internet Explorer is quite widely used. Take a look at these stats:

      IE has the best favorites sidebar!

    Although it’s good to see ABP on IE, it’s definitely unnecessary because IE has included Tracking Protection since version 9. I even use the EasyList TPL, which is the same filter used as ABP by default.

    1. Codrut Neagu says:

      Very true. However, in Adblock Plus there’s an easy way of adding exceptions for the websites you want to support 🙂

  3. anon says:

    Well, using IE’s Tracking Protection, I can simply click on the blocked icon in the address bar and turn it off for that domain. Is this what you’re referring to?

    1. Codrut Neagu says:

      That’s a way too, yes 🙂

    My wife still likes aol desktop. Yes, I know, I know, but that won’t/can’t change. Having said that I can’t get Adblock plus to install. Does the aol desktop lock itself to any additions or modifications?
    Any advice appreciated.

    I looked the forums and so far, I know the following:
    1. The status bar must selected in the “view” selections and “locked” to prevent inadvertent changes. That’s done. Thanks.
    2. AdBlock Plus 1.4 is the most current (I think) but how do I confirm that in my computer VAIO using IE-10 & Windows 8.1?? Must the previous versions of AdBlock Plus be removed/uninstalled and how do I do this??
    3. I see the “ADP symbol” in the bottom right of the status bar (enabled) but I still see some imbedded ads (on YouTube) but how do I know that ABP is updated properly when I “check for updates” ??? I see nothing happening when I click on “update”.
    Thank you.

    Needs to be more configurable — more like the FireFox version. If I can’t add to the lists, or add my own list, it’s at best a mediocre filter for my needs. I would also like to see the capability for blocking widgets like Facebook, Twitter, etc.

  7. Elto says:

    I don’t understand the language selection in the settings.
    What are the options? What do they mean?
    What is EasyList?
    What is RuAdList+EasyList?
    What is RoList+EasyList?

    1. Ciprian Adrian Rusen says:

      EasyList is a list of ad blocking filters, maintained by Adblock. ROList or RuAdList are local lists for local countries like Romania or Russia. EasyList is a generic list, filtering international ads. The others also include local filters, for local markets.

    i m very happy to knowing that now adblock plus is available for internet explorer. but Adblocking has become a major concern. We are in need to beat them as they’re hurting online advertising business revenue. This steps seem damn simple! I can try it for short-term solution. As yet I have used Adzsafe to deal with adblockers. It supports my ads to load and to be seen. I started profiting revenues instantly. Your simple steps can help me to get rid of adblockers for short-term. Thanks though!
