Powerful program which helps individuals block advertisements and popups for some of the most used web browsers, and configure a huge list of parameters

editor's review






Most browsers available today come with built-in ad and pop-up blockers, so why use a different application for this purpose? Well, because Ad Muncher has so many features that it is undoubtedly able to make the whole browsing experience a lot more pleasant.

The application is able to filter website data and block unwanted content, regardless if we are referring to advertisements, links, images, sounds or various scripts.

Support for many web browsers and context menu integration

Ad Muncher runs separately yet it integrates perfectly into most browsers, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera and Mozilla Firefox, creating a special context menu option to block content on the fly.

Right clicking on a website gives you the power to block a given link, an image, a whole frame or disable filters on the entire page. In addition, there is a special option to report the page and thus help the developer make the app better in the next releases.

Set up ad parameters and block popups

The configuration screen allows you to remove music and sound, background images, colored scroll bars, bookmark scripts, automatic reloads, window resizing, browser status bar changes and even address icons.

In addition to that, it is possible to customize the way the application handles advertisements, seeing that there is an option to leave small text-only ads alone and replace removed images with a description of the image.

As for the popups, Ad Muncher blocks them all, including automatic JavaScript alerts and messenger service popups, showing you a notice in the browser status bar when a new popup is blocked.

A last assessment

Ad Muncher is impressively easy to use, yet it has so many features that you may spend even a half an hour setting it up. After that though, you will definitely know that no advertisement or popup will ever see daylight on your computer.

All in all, given how many features it boasts, Ad Muncher seems to be just the right way to improve your browsing experience, without putting a strain on your computer’s performance.
