New Malwarebytes Browser Guard makes Ad Blocker obsolete

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

🙂 And all other ad blockers as well, because not only does it block advertisements just like others, but it also blocks Ad Trackers, potential tech support scams and malware attacks. Its basically just like the malwarebytes software you installed on your computer, except its in the browser itself as an extra layer of security, and its free forever.

This is great to hear about, as I know the guys at MBAM are constantly working to keep people safe online. (Used to be a reseller / part of their techbench program.) However, I switched back to uBlock Origin because the MBAM Browser Guard doesn't always remove the whitespace where ads would otherwise be, creating large gaps on certain sites, whereas uBlock Origin does this. I'll have to give MBAM Browser Guard a try again later when they've had a chance to update it.

Firefox already does a lot of this but I could see it being useful for chrome users

Well, you can get it for Firefox too if you use that.

it looks old, the customization feature is super annoying, like i have to go into a whole submenu to move an extention to the right or wahtever, in chrome i can just drag, and it's slower than both Chrome and Safari for me. that might be a Mac optimization thing, but still.
