    Is there a free ad blocker for IE 10 that doesn't slow it down too much?
    Thanks.

    A few more extensions would definately lure me back to IE.

    Yes, that's the best option to block ads.

    The Tracking one is to block trackers and those with flags are to block ads in sites of other languages.

    All of them work on IE 9 and 10 as well.

    Admuncher is the best thing for IE.

    Simple Adblock has always worked well for me.

    Adfender is free. The tray icon looks 16bit but it will do the job and block adds. Admuncher is better but it costs $$$ and would log me out some flash based programs. Never got simple adblock work for me.

    Sorry if this is off topic, but what do you mean Ad Muncher will log you out of flash based programs?

    I'm not aware this is even possible, no one has ever reported such a thing.

    Have you tried reporting this to us?

    Link is shown as 404, while it still was alive this Thursday AM. I had asked in Fanboy's forum to update that homepage due to merging changes with Easylist and now I'm wondering if they're doing so? Time will tell huh?

    Yes, if IE7Pro hadn't been abandoned I would be using IE right now. The ad blocker was great. Would be nice if someone would create something similar for IE10.

    Adfender slows browsing - dramatically. That's not what a good adblocker is supposed to do.

    Adguard is another one, free, also stops malware, but also slows browsing.

    I have a requirement of under 0.75 for all page loads, anythign that increases that is ditched.

    All of them work and updated automatically on IE 9.

    Heck, I didn't realize that the lack of TPL updates in IE10 was this old!!! :eek: I wonder when they will fix this? I mean ~ 7 months have passed since someone started to complain about it. Wouldn't it be about time they fixed this? :blink: o_O

    Considering that I rarely use IE, I've been manually updating the TPLs whenever I use it.
