The popular Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome/Opera addon now available for Google Android too. :thumbup1:

Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads on your Android device. NO ROOT REQUIRED!

It blocks all online advertising when browsing, and when using your favorite apps like Angry Birds. It is 100% free and makes your Android device much more enjoyable.
Adblock Plus blocks: mobile ads, video advertising, banners, push notifications, display advertising, HTML5 advertising, and much more.

PLEASE NOTE: Adblock Plus might have limited functionality, depending on the Android version on your device and whether your device has been rooted:
Rooted: Blocks ads over Wi-Fi and 3G
Non-rooted with Android 3.1 or later: Blocks ads over Wi-Fi
Non-rooted with Android 3.0 or earlier: Some manual configuration is required. Please visit our website to learn how to setup your own proxy: https://adblockplus.org/en/android-config#proxy
Also, Android does not allow ads to be blocked on SSL encrypted websites.

Adblock Plus is an open-source, community driven project. Many volunteers are contributing to the development and maintenance of Adblock Plus. Currently, there are over forty continuously updating filter lists in over a dozen different languages, ensuring that all obtrusive ads remain blocked.
Please note that Adblock Plus will probably become the highest data-using application on your Android device. However, this is only because Adblock Plus needs to filter the data to ensure that the ads can be blocked. Adblock Plus is actually only using a fraction of the data shown on your device.

Adblock Plus is also available for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera.

Don't install this app on a lower end Android having low heap like mine Micromax A50. ABP's blocking technique is to route internet through them. On lower end phones like mine, which can barely allow one or two apps to run simultaneously, the ABP crashes in background as Android's garbage collector frees memory for my browser. If this happens you lose internet connection.You either have to relaunch ABP or uninstall it. Sometimes you may need to reboot after the uninstall to get internet back.I am better off without it. 'AdFree' app that uses the traditional host file method is good enough for me.
