Ad Muncher 4.93 Build 33707
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.
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.

- The biggest new feature in v4.93 is the new Ad Muncher Toolbar. This is normally hidden to avoid annoyance, but can be shown by holding CTRL or SHIFT and right-clicking on a filtered page. You'll then see options to exclude or report the page, as well as an option to munch specific content.
- You can also see when popups have been blocked, and easily open them if needed. CTRL or SHIFT + Right click on a filtered page = This toolbar removes the need for the old browser-specific extensions, and in future will make it much easier to provide functionality on other platforms.
