Adblock List for Internet Explorer 9

IE9 TPL (Tracking Protection Lists) for blocking ads and tracking sites. Not only you block ads, you also save bandwidth and system resources (CPU and RAM), because your browser doesn't need to download and render all that crap anymore.

More info, plus lists:

Be careful not to add too much of those. Each list can be pretty big. Fanboy's Adblock list without tracking sites has 5100+ entries. I use combined list for Chrome/Iron with ~8000 entries + AdBlock Plus. :)

Comparison of various IE9 TPL lists from JUN-04-2011:

Fanboy Adblock List for Internet Explorer 9 - 5175 entries
Fanboy Tracking List - 3685 entries
both Fanboy TPLs combined = 8860 entries !!
EasyPrivacy - 3151 entries
PrivacyChoice All Companies - 611 entries (includes "no oversight" list)
PrivacyChoice No Oversight Companies - 462 entries
TRUSTe - 106 entries
Abine - 104 entries

Besides Fanboy's list, EasyPrivacy is one of the best. Others are most probably covered by either of those two.

Update: Fanboy's list is better for adult sites, it has faster pattern matching because it's optimized better, and has more universal rules to match unknown ads. Easylist has more international rules by default, however Fanboy's site also has lists for other regions which can be added to active subscriptions.

yes true dyn ads and them small video shows they do on a page eats up lots of connection and suks big time...cant even dl a file without having 4 to 5 ads showing crap and videos of new movies. this is why in windows 98 times.. it was easy and less BS.

IE was #1 until 2008, but not anymore. Now Firefox is #1 and Chrome is getting more and more popularity as well.

MAY 2011, IE is only at 24.9 % [ http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp ]. I couldn't believe it, but it seems to be true. It was like 80% years ago. I guess people learned what brings them most trojans. IE9 is secure (so far), but damage was done, IE is responsible for millions of infections and they deserve to be at 25% now. For those who don't get it -- infections mean DDoS attacks on servers, stolen credit cards, stolen identity and so on. Most trojans are not there to steal your CD Key, but to form botnets and to steal financial information.

If you are still among those 25% using IE:
http://www.firefox.com/
http://www.google.com/chrome/
http://www.opera.com/

w3schools stats may show lower figures than other sites for IE, this is because sites they gather data from are not sites all people would visit, however it clearly shows general trends and what can you expect to be reality elsewhere very soon. Stats reflect browser usage among web developers and other tech savvy users, which in turn will influence less experienced users. Even when you include all users many agree IE usage is below 50% for some time already.

StatCounter Global Stats - includes all sorts of sites, not just tech sites, IE is below FF in Europe.

European stats:
http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser-eu-monthly-200807-201106
IE 35.15%

Worldwide:
http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser-ww-monthly-200807-201106
IE 43.38%

Keep in mind this number is even lower, because many people at workplace or schools are still forced to use IE. We could say IE usage is around 35% worldwide, and even lower (25%) among more experienced users.
