Adblock Plus for Microsoft Edge
Say goodbye to annoying ads

Adblock Plus is an Edge add-on that makes ads disappear (and has plenty of other useful features, too).

Just install the tool, restart Edge and it'll begin filtering your web pages immediately. Most, if not all of those annoying Flash ads will disappear right away, speeding up your browsing and allowing you to concentrate on the site content.

The program hasn't worked for you? Adblock Plus provides a choice of more than 40 filters, and you can choose the ones that are most effective for you.

There are filters for many languages beyond just English, for instance, from Dutch, French and German, to Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, and more.

And you can also install filters for many specific purposes: to block ads on adult or P2P websites, to protect you from privacy risks, keep you safe from known malware domains, and even a blacklist for known Rickrolling pages (no, really...).

What's new in 3.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Icon popup: Added ability to whitelist individual pages
- Extract domain from URL when whitelisting a website
- Prevent users from adding filter lists from unsupported URLs
- Refreshed settings page design
- Issue reporter: Added link for reporting other issues
- Removed notification for recommending filter list that hides offending messages
- Updated extension description
- Fixed: Don’t focus first-run page when shown due to data corruption
- Fixed: Keep number of blocked requests in icon popup updated while it’s open

Verdict:

Adblock Plus's Edge edition needs some work, but that's no surprise for such an early edition, and given the developer's track record we're sure any issues will be resolved soon.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.20.22

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.20.22?

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
- To reduce data usage, enabling your iPhone’s Low Data Mode will now disable media auto-download in WhatsApp.
