Bothered by pesky web ads? Are you searching for a complete solution to purge them? Then you have just come to the right place. Today I will write about a software which will help you to automatically remove all the annoying ads from the web pages without distorting the main content from it.
Ad Muncher, yes the name of that software is Ad Muncher, is an effective, light weight and easy to use ad blocker that works with all browsers. Not only ads, it is capable of removing unwanted popups, video ads and third-party trackers. It makes browsing fast, secure and can significantly reduce your bandwidth usage.
Ad Muncher- Description and Features:
Ad Muncher is extremely easy to install and configure. You don’t need to spend hours configuring the filters. Just install and it will start to work immediately.
It also comes with a simple and easy to use interface. All the features and settings are well placed in horizontal tabbed structure. The first tab is the Logs menu. It keeps a log of the links, image urls, blocked popups, scripts, triggered filters etc. All of those are classified under a well-designed drop down menu. The next tab is the My filters tab. This feature allows you create your own filters. It helps you to customize the filters and it is very good for the advanced users. Even creating a new filter is very easy and this shows the flexibility of Ad Muncher. The next tab lists all the default filters and Ad Muncher comes with a whopping 11755 filters.
The developers are constantly updating the filters for best results. The next tab is the tools tab. It has 3 sub tabs- Replace text, IP Scramble and Load/Save/Reset Configuration. Then comes the options tab. I have already mentioned that Ad Muncher is very flexible and the option menu reflects that. A large number of configurations is there on the option menu. Though the default settings will work quite well but for advanced users it a very interesting addition. I found this part quite impressive and made quite a few changes on how the filters work and actions taken on popups. This kind of flexibility keeps Ad Muncher ahead from the rest of the ad blockers.
The next two tabs are Contact and About. Another very good feature which I noticed on this application is that you can have a live chat with the support team or email them from the application only. This is quite a new feature and I have rarely seen it. In many cases you have scan the official website for hours to get the contact details of the tech support but with this feature it is certainly easier, faster and much efficient way to get in touch with them.
