As the name suggests, these extensions are used to block certain annoying advertisements that may pop up while you search for certain contents over the web. But till today it was used as just an extension that is available in the various browser giants such as Google Chrome, Firefox etc. But last day they came with a full-fledged web browser which can be used in Android handsets.
The Adblock Plus Browser for the Android platform was developed basically on the web browser Firefox37. The application is currently in beta. Inorder to test the functioning of the application, you have to join ABP’s (Adblock Plus) community in Google+ and then you will be able to download it from Google Playstore.
