AdFender is a lightweight application built specifically for helping you block annoying ads that may appear while surfing the Internet. This way, you can speed up your Internet bandwidth and navigate in a clean environment.
The program sports a clean and straightforward interface which displays an overview of the current blocking session. In addition to that, it offers details about the date, requested scans, active connections, banner or flash ads, the total number of blocked ads, as well as saved bandwidth.
Support for many items
AdFender enables users to choose what applications the program should filter. It offers support for a wide range of web browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Avant, Comodo Dragon, Epic, Flock, K-Meleon, Lunascape, Maxthon), instant messaging programs (e.g. AOL, ICQ, Trillian, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger), and P2P applications (BearShare, BitComet, iMesh).

Futhermore, you can apply filters or set custom rules, as well view a log with the filtered items and a list with the websites where ads were blocked.
Last but not least, the program comes packed with cleaning capabilities for helping you keep data private from unauthorized viewing by removing the selected cookies (for Chrome, Firefox, or IE) and browsing history.
