I just got a new computer and wanted to know which blocker is the best. I had one on my old computer that blocked utube ads and was really good, but can't remember what it was. Thanks.

Ublock origin works well for me, maybe someone will know something newer thats better.

Ad Blocker Plus (ABP) seems to work good for me. It's the default ad blocker used in Maxthon browser, but lately I'm using Chrome. ABP is available as an Extension for Chrome and I'm using it in Chrome now. Seems effective.

Adblock Plus for past several years has been excellent. Prior to this the ones I used let stuff in all the time. Using Firefox browser.

I use the Opera browser. It has an ad-blocker built in and works great. I switched from Chrome and Opera is a lot less invasive.

Thanks all. I remember the little stop sign icon for the adblock plus so I reinstalled it on my new computer.

Adblock Plus doesnt block all ads, but rather operates what it calls an acceptable ads program, where ads that meet its criteria for things like placement, size, and distinction, are whitelistedthat is, if the company displaying the ads is willing to split the revenue gained by whitelisting with Adblock Plus. Companies can apply to have their sites whitelisted, but Adblock Plus has also reached out to some to solicit their business.

We use uBlock Origin on all tablets and phones and browsers

uBlock Origin. Aside from a less slick UI it kicks AdBlock's tail all over the place: https://techonation.com/ublock-origin-vs-adblock-plus/

Even the standard AdBlock works wonders. Its programmable and I haven't seen ads for ages. When I am on other computers I don't own I am amazed at the ad pollution I never see.

The best add blocker is the one that coordinates with your browser the best. If you go to your browser's website, they'll have an add blocker extension that they recommend.
