Watch YouTube videos without annoying ads.

Adblock for YouTube is an ad blocking tool that lets you watch any YouTube video you want without ads. It's an extension for the Chrome browser that installs and is ready for use in just a few seconds. You'll simply need to have the latest version of the Google Chrome browser installed on your system. As it's a browser-based application, it works on any PC with Chrome. Therefore, you can use it on any operating system, including all versions of Windows, macOS or Linux.

Watch YouTube Videos Without Delays or Interruptions

YouTube is the world's most popular video sharing site and has millions of videos available. However, many of them contain ads that show up at the beginning of the video or during playback. Some ads can be skipped after a few seconds, while in other cases you'll have to see the entire ad. This can be quite annoying, especially if you're shown ads that you've seen dozens of times before.

Ads also use up bandwidth and take time to load, which can be inconvenient if you're on a slow or unreliable Internet connection. Adblock for YouTube makes your YouTube viewing experience a lot more pleasant by getting rid of them entirely. It uses a powerful ad detection algorithm to detect and block all forms of ads. The playback of the videos you want to see won't be affected in any way. If you have a favorite YouTube channel that you want to support and don't mind seeing ads on their videos, you can disable the ad blocker simply by clicking on a button.

Useful Ad Blocker With Some Limitations

Adblock for YouTube is a useful little tool to add to your Chrome browser, but it's not entirely perfect. It only works with the Chrome browser, so you'll still see ads on YouTube videos if you use Firefox, Internet Explorer or any other browser installed on your system.

Another downside of this program is that it only blocks ads on YouTube. Banners and popup ads on other websites won't be blocked by it. As its ad blocking engine is made specifically for YouTube, it also won't block ads on other video sharing and streaming sites, such as Vimeo and Dailymotion. This can be a problem for some users, as other video sites are gaining in popularity.

There are some more powerful ad blockers out there that are available for all browsers and will block ads on all websites. But if you only use Chrome and just want a tool that blocks ads on YouTube, you'll probably be happy with Adblock for YouTube.

Pros

  • Blocks all ads on YouTube videos without affecting playback
  • Available for the Chrome browser on all operating systems
  • Lightweight and simple to install

Cons

  • Only works with the Google Chrome browser
  • Doesn't block ads on websites or other video streaming services besides YouTube
