    Hi, I have been looking at adblocking for IE 9 and wondered if anyone is using simple adblock or if there are better options that run better/smoother

    Thanks

    Andy

    I'm going to assume you've tried using TPLs?

    No, I havent but I have been reading a few bits but didnt know if a standalone program is better or worse and if using TPL'S which would be best

    You can give Adfender a whirl.

    I've tried many including TPLs butn othing comes close to ADBlock plus on Firefox or Chrome which is why I decided to stick with Chrome as Firefox is too slow for my liking

    IE is the crappiest browser ever made. Just my 2 cents

    Well, Ive always grown up using IE and generally find the layout easier to work with.

    For now I have added both the Fanboy tracking protection and Fanboy Adblock and see how it goes from there.

    May have a look at Adfender as well

    I did try that as well but it missed some ads on www.majorgeeks.com
    Try visiting that site and see

    The solution was to install many TPLs at the same time then the MajorGeeks ads went away

    But in return, some programs stopped working like XMARKS so I just got frustrated and uninstalled IE altogether and switched to Chrome

    Calm your sensationalism for a moment berryracer.

    Like I've stated before it didn't miss anything, IE blocks 3rd party content, the ads you saw were 1st party. Luckily 1st party ads are usually not intrusive, there is also no privacy/tracking issues with them as you are already visiting the site in question.

    1st party advertising is quite uncommon luckily, but if you find TPLs insufficient, there are system-wide programs available that don't require you to switch browser. If you do feel like switching, ABP is an excellent plugin for Chrome and Firefox.

    TPL's for IE 9. Use the ones that suit your needs best. East List, East Privacy and Fanboy come to mind.
