Improved ad blocker using cutting-edge machine learning techniques to identify advertising and user tracking on websites and prevent the unwanted content from loading.

Still in early testing - use at your own risk!
Risk impact

Content-aware Ad Blocker requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Content-aware Ad Blocker if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Content-aware Ad Blocker has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

I would really like it if such a "kind" of adblockers would be developed further or even more would use such "real" Machine Learning models like this one! Here a "real" Machine Learning model is used, this can be recognized first of all by the size and by the contained model, which is in the extension! A really highly interesting approach to blocking ads! It would have been cool if someone had taken up this idea to develop it further, possibly in the form of a "tracker and ad blocker". Probably only the computational effort to train this model is not in any relation to the "effect" of this model. This one is also a bit error-prone, but if you see from which year this extension is, namely from 2016, then you see that nowadays much more and more accurate models would be possible! That's a fact! Maybe sometime someone is so "intelligent" and pursues this approach further, I sincerely hope that this is so!

its a very great site. I work this extension in combination with traditional ad blocker, and it works great.

This extension managed to block annoying ads by Yandex, which other ad blockers similar to uBlock Origin failed to block (it was nearly impossible to manually create reliable blocking rules). I work this extension in combination with traditional ad blocker, and it works great.
