    I've been using admuncher for years on all my pc's. But it doesn't work on Windows 7 (and the looks like the developers don't plan to add support anytime soon for a beta OS), so I have to look for a replacement.

    Freeware would be nice. Admuncher was one of the few programs I gladly paid for, so far I haven't found anything close to it. FF+AdBlockPlus is what I have.

    And that's not sufficient o_O I can't believe it. ABP is the best ad blocker I've ever used. Perhaps you're using the wrong subscriptions? I recommend EasyList, EasyPrivacy and Malware Domains. Feel free to add some others if necessary.

    There has been a new beta version released of AdMuncher. This version is supposed to support Windows 7. As is always the case with betas, use with caution.

    Some software supports 32-bit. Some software supports 64-bit. Some software supports both. Wouldn't the use of this program be more widespread if the users knew if their OS was supported? After all it's only a fraction of them who are clairvoyants or consult a such...

    I fully agree. Besides SUPERAdBlocker isn't just any program. It's leading in it's field.

    You don't have the option of using the admuncher beta with caution. It's either not get updates or have the beta forced upon you.

    Just an FYI. AdMuncher 4.8 has been available for ~1 week now. It is the latest stable version.

    I'm quite happy with my ABP w/ Easylist subscription + Proxomitron w/ Sidki filters combination.

    Why both? Because ABP w/ Easylist seems to catch about 95% of the stuff and Proxomitron catches the rest.

    Plus Proxomitron is just so amazing. If I knew how to mess around with configuring my own filters, I'm sure it would be even better. Sidki's filters are already pretty good though! :thumb:

    Not "pimping our product" - simply updating threads (the whole purpose of forum threads ) where our product was mentioned, and/or users are asking for an updated ad-blocking solution, but thanks for linking to all the threads!

    I also think it is perfectly legitimate what you are doing as I'm sure of the majority of members here.

    Yes, for Opera users....but not for the the other 99.99% of users in the Internet world using IE and Firefox :)

    Opera is a nice browser and is fast, it's just not as widely used as IE and Firefox at this time.
