AdBlock releases AdBlock browser for Android, waiting for approval from Google

Ad Block BrowserAdBlock is one of the most popular browser extensions for both Chrome and Firefox, but the buck has always stopped there – it is an extension. But what if AdBlock was also a browser?

That’s the idea behind AdBlock’s newest app for Android. The smart people behind the popular extension have now released a beta version of AdBlock Browser for Android, which promises to block all mobile ads in your browser that ruin your mobile browsing experience. The best part is, you don’t need to root your phone to block ads, and Phandroid reports that it seems to be just as fast and capable of browsing the internet as the mobile versions of Chrome and Firefox.

To try it out yourself, you can download it through AdBlock’s Google+ community. The developers are also waiting on approval from Google to publish it to the Play Store as a beta app. However, given Google’s not-so-stellar history with previous ad-blocking apps, it’s up in the air whether or not this app will actually make it to the Play Store.

In any case, check it out in the source link below.
