    Maxthon now has ABP included with its new Android release.

    So far it seems to be working fine and I welcome this as I don't run an adblocker on my Android tablet. I've been experimenting with particularly ad-filled pages which normally take their time to load and can be very trying as you try to read text on a page dancing up and down as a zillion ads load.

    The Star Trek Memory Alpha Wiki page for example, seems broken at first, but the search box does work and you can scroll down to an ad-free page eventually.

    I'll need to experiment more but overall this is a huge improvement for Maxthon. It was already my favourite browser on Android. Oddly, on Linux/Ubuntu, I now prefer ABE on Firefox and ublock on Chromium.
