    I found this - http://www.edgeadblock.com/ - an adblocker for Microsofts Edge browser. Anyone using this blocker or knows more about it?

    Yeah i saw that. So then i wonder if it is a siteblocker or an adblocker? I downloaded it and open the files and there where some info saying that one had to - "sourcing back" - meaning giving info back so then i of course wonder what that really means and works.

    Interesting if it works but the info about it and the company is little. I am not interested enough to try it myself.

    It just copies Dan Pollock's hosts file to your hosts file. ;)

    If you are interested in hosts blocking, it would be better to use a hosts manager like Hosts Block or HostsMan.

    idd, this "adblock" is crap - it block servers but not ads - and get no updates. AdGuard is descent for IE/Edge.

    I'm using it and works just fine. It works by blocking ads via host file and is a simple solution to block ads in Edge browser if you don't have money to spend on Adguard or other similar payware.
