Adblock's Android browser blocks annoying adds, beta version now available for download
Adblock is one the most popular and most useful extensions for Google Chrome and Firefox on the PC, as well as for the Safari browser on Macs, and it looks like the company's quest against annoying ads will soon expand to the most popular mobile operating system as well. 

Adblock is currently working on an Android browser, one that will come with the ability to block the ads that it deems to be annoying. Ads that are deemed as unobtrusive will be left untouched when you browse the web using the Adblock Android browser.

In a post on the Google+ Adblock Browser for Android community, a developer mentioned that the Adblock Browser for Android is based on Firefox for Android, and that the Adblock team pretty much left the Firefox features untouched while adding its world-renowned ad blocking technology. You can turn the feature off, but that's probably the reason you're interested in Adblock's browser in the first place.

Looking into the future, the developer says that the team will integrate features that are not available on Firefox. One example shared by the developer is the upcoming ability to play YouTube videos directly from the browser, with none of those pre-video apps disturbing the user experience.

The company has just released a beta version of the Adblock Browser for Android. To grab it, follow the instructions detailed in the source link below. The app is currently not available from Google Play, as the Adblock Browser for Android app is still pending Google's review.
