Best Google Chrome Extensions

According to Alphabet my Favorite Google Chrome Add-on’s are:

1. Adblock for Pirate Bay

Piratebay is one of my mostly used browser. But it really anoying getting pop up ads. This this extension removes banner, pop-up, and pop-under ads on TPB only. There are also other great extensions such as AdBlock and Adblock Plus that block banner-type ads but do not block pop-unders, and it may be a good idea to use one of those in combination with this extension.

Install Adblock for Pirate Bay

2. Adblock Plus

Another great plugin to block all kind of Ads in the website. Not helpful for the Pop up though. But great to block flash ads, Adsense ads, Chitika etc. These ads are really annoying sometimes. Adblock Plus is the world’s most popular browser extension, and is used by millions of users worldwide. It is a community-driven open source project, and hundreds of volunteers are contributing to the success of Adblock Plus to make sure that all annoying ads are automatically blocked.

4. Pop Block Pro

See how much I hate pop up blocker. Even using more than one pop up blocker. Dont know which one functions more better. Pop Block Pro improves the default Google Chrome pop up blocker by blocking pop up windows opened by javascript & other annoyances that it misses like alert, prompt, and confirm boxes. They often occur when you simply click on what looks like blank space or text that shouldn’t do anything, let alone annoy you with a pop up window.
