***App is removed from the Chrome WebStore. The Adblock Plus Extension is still available***
Until about a week ago, there was no significant difference between the apps and extensions in the Chrome Webstore. Both were featured next to each other in the ‘Most Popular’ and ‘Trending’ sections of the webstore. But then, Google decided to remove all extensions from the Chrome Webstore, and relocated them to the bottom of webstore. This caused quite the stir amongst the developers of Chrome extensions, because it suddenly became very difficult to search for extensions. For regular users it can tricky to find and install an adblocker. Therefore, Adblock Plus created this very easy app, which will check whether you are protected against obtrusive advertising. It you have no adblocker installed, it provides you with the best adblocker currently available: Adblock Plus (http://adblockplus.org).
