As the name implies, Del Ad is an Internet Explorer plugin that is capable of blocking advertisements, enhancing web browsing experience by removing these irritating page elements.
It comes packed with powerful, yet intuitive options that can be handled by all types of users, regardless of their skill level when it comes to these types of tools.
Once installed, Del Ad becomes active. Its options can be configured from a button that is placed at the end of the URL bar. So, you can change the UI language, enable tracking protection, as well as allow acceptable advertising.
As far as the GUI is concerned, you can show extended and developer menus, as well as hide the Del Ad toolbar icon (with support for a hotkey combination that triggers the GUI popup).
The plugin is capable of regularly checking for updates at a user-defined time frame, to automatically download adblock filter updates and to send notifications when a software update is available. There are no other notable options provided by this IE extension.
Del Ad does not affect Internet Explorer's performance, since it runs on a low CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and works well, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. We have not come across any problems in our tests.
When it comes down to it, Del Ad provides Internet Explorer users with a smooth web browsing experience, free from those annoying advertisements, and it should satisfy everyone's preferences.
