Default ASUS mobile browser to come with Adblock Plus starting next year

Adblock Plus

Let’s face it, we all use #Adblock from time to time (or always) to give us a break from those annoying ads. A new report now mentions that ASUS is taking this aspect of the user experience very seriously as it plans to incorporate Adblock Plus with its default browser beginning next year.

This might leave some people at Google sour faced, so it will be interesting to see how the Mountain View giant reacts to this news. In addition to blocking annoying advertisements, Adblock Plus also lets you save mobile bandwidth and enhances user experience to a great extent.

We’re guessing there will be some “whitelisted” sites within Adblock which will be let through, as is the case with the browser version. However, these ads do not interfere with the user experience in any way. These are also known as ‘acceptable ads’.

We’re yet to get the full details from ASUS or the creators of Adblock as of now, but this appears to be a very bold step by the Taiwanese manufacturer and could help them score a lot of brownie points among the customers. What do you think?
