    "A lot of your modern day browsers have an ad blocker built into them, but there are still a few things that are better viewed and worked on in IE thanks to some coding issues with website. When I have to go in an edit a website with Internet Explore it's hard to concentrate with the constant random ads coming up into my work space. When I found AdBlock Plus that all changed and I was able to work on coding websites again for Internet Explorer without a problem as it seemed to block any and every pop up I ever got before."

    "I've had trouble finding an ad blocker for internet explorer that doesn't slow down my browser or give me even more ads, but Ghostery has worked wonders so far. It's very fast and gets rid of all the annoying junk and even gets rid of website tracking details about me. Blocking ads and helping me be more anonymous, these are the two main reasons to try it out."

    "I had heard ways of earning money by viewing ads while online, however I was never really sure how to do it. Then I heard of AdBeaver and everything changed. I love how I am able to collect Adcoins while viewing and surfing the web as I normally do. I can earn rewards for spending time online like I always do? What's not to love. "

    "I believe that Adguard is a fairly competent piece of software. It blocks ads and tracking requests and it helps secure your client. It is comparable to some of the other ad-blockers that exists on the market. It is also slightly faster and offers some features you may not find in other ad-blockers. AdGuard also works for Internet explorer or Microsoft Edge as a browser so its a viable choice for these types of internet browsers. "

    "If like myself, you are sick of constant pop-ups when you are trying to work, you need PrivacyChoice. This is user-friendly, affordable, and doesn't become your most annoying pop up like many products in this genre. It sits quietly in the background and does not alert you every second that it is doing it's job! You can work uninterrupted and if you do want to see how hard it worked, you can click on your app and check it when you want."

    "Ad Blockers for IE are pretty rare, but Quero works. There's a few times where it blocks some scripts that are necessary for the page to function, however generally it does what it advertises itself to do and it does it well. It's easy to turn off if needed and the default settings are solid."

    "I was looking for a program to use to help block ads while I am on-line and found information on EasyList. I went to the website hoping it would alleviate my problems; however, I am so confused by the website and the information it holds that I don't even know if EasyList would help me! There are so many additional links and further info that I am not sure even relate to what I'm looking for. I attempted to read through the website and the product descriptions but would need a dictionary - or Google - for a lot of words/phrases therefore making the process so much more difficult. I consider myself to be fairly intelligent but after looking at this website...I feel completely baffled and confused! If all ad blocker sites are like this, I'm not going to be able to find the solution I need!"

    "I am a big fan of anything that will block advertisements from my internet browsing. It seems that being on the internet these days is a journey to look over advertisements to get to the meat and bones of things. The fanboy is easy to use at you simply click on a TPL and it is even divided by different countries ads you may want to block. I did not see United States listed but oh how I want to block all political ads from my mind and daily living. "
