Some websites are designed smart enough to find whether the adblockers are installed or not? You might have crossed websites that ask you to disable the adblockers with a message.
Even some advanced adblocker plugins couldn’t hide the ads in facebook 🙁 . Recently I found a adblocker that works in different way. The way, it looks the page like a human. Not like a machine. Unlike other adblockers, this uses perceptual techniques. Thus called as ‘Perceptual Adblocker’.
This plugin with frequent updates improving gradually, now works better with AdChoice ads and other few more ad types (which usually evade Adblock Plus). What’s better about this is, It works well with facebook ads on timeline.
Instead of abruptly hiding the ads, this plugin overlaps the ad with “THIS IS AN AD” text. Ethically played well with adblocking. I am using this concurrently with AdBlock Plus in Chrome. Gave me appreciable results apart from few random glitches while using certain web chat apps (esp. hangouts).
