Bluehell Firewall, lightweight Ad-Blocker addon for Mozilla Firefox.


Bluehell Firewall is a lightweight ad-blocker add-on developed by Diego Casorran for Mozilla Firefox. This the same developer who created an add-on to prevent facebook phishing on Firefox. This add-on weighs only 30 Kilo Bytes which makes it non compromising with browser performance but comes with price. Lightweight means no configurable settings. So, you can't depend on this add-on for complete elimination of annoying ads, particularly those non Google ads and private ad pop-ups.

So, Bluehell Firewall an alternative to Adblock Plus? My answer, definitely not.
