Block All Online Ads Without Draining Your Computer Memory

Adblock Plus is a popular browser add-on for blocking all online ads, but one criticism about it is that it uses a lot of memory, which can slow down your computer. Now there is lightweight alternative called uBlock that blocks all online ads while using minimal memory or less than the memory consumed by Adblock Plus.

 uBlock is a Chrome add-on for blocking all online ads. It uses many of the same filter lists of Adblock Plus to determine which content to block on web pages, including EasyList, but it requires less memory and CPU footprint.

How to Use it? 


It is very easy to use. You can turn on and off ads on pages with a single click. Just click the uBlock icon, and then click the big power button. It will disable/enable ads on current page. However, it does not offer the option to allow ‘acceptable ads’ that you find in Adblock Plus.

You enable and disable filters through its Options panel. Go to uBlock option, choose the filters and save changes. Keep in mind that the more filters you select, the more memory uBlock will use, so it is wise to deselect any that you do not need.

You can install uBlock from Chrome webstore.
