Experimental new ad blocker using machine learning to identify unwanted ads on pages and remove them. Use at your own risk!
Improved ad blocker using cutting-edge machine learning techniques to identify advertising and user tracking on websites and prevent the unwanted content from loading.
Still in early testing - use at your own risk!
This extension managed to block annoying ads by Yandex, which other ad blockers similar to uBlock Origin failed to block (it was nearly impossible to manually create reliable blocking rules). I work this extension in combination with traditional ad blocker, and it works great.
Some suggestions to the developer:
Still a Beta, some time not enough like YouTube ads and some item too much like www.nytimes.com.

I would really like it if such a "kind" of adblockers would be developed further or even more would use such "real" Machine Learning models like this one! Here a "real" Machine Learning model is used, this can be recognized first of all by the size and by the contained model, which is in the extension! A really highly interesting approach to blocking ads! It would have been cool if someone had taken up this idea to develop it further, possibly in the form of a "tracker and ad blocker". Probably only the computational effort to train this model is not in any relation to the "effect" of this model. This one is also a bit error-prone, but if you see from which year this extension is, namely from 2016, then you see that nowadays much more and more accurate models would be possible! That's a fact! Maybe sometime someone is so "intelligent" and pursues this approach further, I sincerely hope that this is so!
