  Description     : Advertisement blocking extension for web browsers

Adblock Edge is a content-filtering extension for Iceweasel, Firefox,
SeaMonkey, and several other applications; it allows users to prevent webpage
elements, such as advertisements, from being downloaded and displayed.

On the first run, Adblock Edge will ask you if you want to subscribe to
a filter list, which is automatically updated and blocks a lot of common
advertisements. Additional filters can be added at will, and it's also
possible to use wildcards in order to block e.g. all images or JavaScript
files from specific servers or directories.

Adblock Edge is a fork of the Adblock Plus version 2.1.2 extension for blocking
advertisements on the web. This fork will provide the same features as Adblock
Plus 2.X and higher but without "acceptable ads" feature.
