    Default Hm, best Adblock on Chrome?

    I've seen alot of Adblocks on the Chrome Plugins homepage.
    But now, which adblocker is the best one? At the moment I am using Adsweep, whick I think, works really good, but is there a better one?

    Adblock and Adblock+ Element Hiding Helper. Same as on FF. Great blocker.

    None of them actually block ads afaik they hide them so the full page loads you just aren't supposed to see the ads. I use Bfilter which is fairly effective at blocking and flashblock.

    I'm hoping the new content settings in the Dev version will allow for an Opera like arrangement in the future where content can be blocked on a site by site basis and possibly allow a content blocking by an extension versus content hiding.

    I switched to AdThwart. It seems to render pages quick. IMO

    Is there anything like Firefoxs "No-Script" plugin for Chrome? I've tested all kind of ad-blockers but didn't find what i need.

    I made reference to this elsewhere in the forum but here's a review that claims that Proxomitron can function similar to NoScript.

    I haven't tried it and I'm not even sure that Chrome needs a NoScript equivalent (from a "security" point of view).

    Still the same?

    Because I want a REAL blocker, like Adblock Plus on Firefox...

    The latest version of AdBlock for Google Chrome can now truly prevent ads from downloading at all by using the “beforeload” event.

    Some snippets from the Adblock extension page:
    AdBlock by gundlach
    https://chrome.google.com/extensions...lidom?hl=en-gb
    New in version 2.0: Ads are actually BLOCKED FROM DOWNLOADING now, instead of just being removed after the fact!

    Note that Chrome doesn't actually support this all the way, so a few resources might still load before AdBlock can get to them, in which case we'll remove those as usual.
    ...
    3. We're waiting on Chrome to fully support resource blocking. We're most of the way there, but a few ads still can slip through. Star the issue at http://bit.ly/chromebug35897 to get this fixed sooner!
