Publisher's Description

Ad Muncher is a system-wide ad blocker, dealing with annoyances like banner ads and popups along with new rich media ads like video ads, interstitials and floating ads. Many types of spyware and adware installers are also blocked, as well as third-party tracking systems. It works out of the box, without the need to choose what you want blocked or configure third-party filter lists, and works with all browsers and many advert-displaying programs such as ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Music Jukebox, SopCast, iMesh, BearShare, Pando, PalTalk, etc.

2015-December

Ad Muncher is officially dead in the water, admitted to by Jeff. Murray has other priorities that do not include Ad Muncher. Sorry folks, but the list below will remain (with features promised since 2007).

Still slows down browsing.
Still fails to work on IE11 (Release date: October 17, 2013)
Still fails to work on HTTP 1.1 (June 1999)
Still fails to support gzip (First mention by devs that it was "being worked on" was in 2007 on their forums)
Still fails to block https (First mention by devs that it was "being worked on" was in 2007 on their forums)
Still the same, tired excuses from Jeff about how over-worked they are and how we should trust that they will release all of this functionality for a now free product.
Does NOT block youtube ads, despite claim below. Youtube is https based and as such falls under the comment above.

Promises have been made and broken too many times to count. Stay away and go with Ad Guard or Ad Block Plus.

What's not to like? What is there to like more to the truth?

It doesn't work in IE 11.
It does not remove ad's on encrypted pages, such as Facebook etc.

Reason to like it:

It's free.

Although if you read to the end of the main page you can donate a beer a month at $5 (wonder where Murray get's his beers)
Or $10 a month for Pizza
Or $20 a month for c***tail
(well 30 people did ask so he succumed) :-)

'At some point in the future, I may need to offer complimentary software products to Ad Muncher users (for example, a recommended spyware blocker or antivirus). These will be done respectfully, and will only be products that compliment Ad Muncher and which I genuinely use myself'

Will that be when version 5.xx is released I wonder?

Works perfectly at blocking ads [No Ads], with practically no setup and zero overhead. And now it's free, too. What's not to like?

Years behind the competition. Devoloped at a snails pace.
They give it away for free since it is useless in Win8.xwithout HTTPS filtering. Can't charge for useless software.
Switched to AdGuard a long time ago.

It doesn't work at all in IE 11, despite claims it works in all browsers, added to the point it doesn't work on encrypted pages on any browser has now made it pretty much useless - Version 5 is as elusive as ever.

As an ex premium user I stopped using it when it stopped working on half the internet despite having a viable licence - Being free now doesn't change that - Hopefully version 5 will be available in the near future!

Though 5 was talked about almost 10 years ago & the interface was done 6 years ago?

Out of the Box, this adblocker blocks TEN TIMES the ads that extensions such as adblock. Nothing against ABP, but it only works on one browser, where this program works across many browsers and programs.

I have been a paid user with lifetime updates since 2005, but now the developer has made this FREE!!! It doesn't get any better than that, and I hope many of the naysayers will actually give it a try instead of bashing it. Https support is coming in future version.

Yep, free and almost useless without https filtering.
WTH is V5?
