The best way to block advertisements and third-party tracking scripts, protecting your privacy and web browsing performance.
A static content blocker that blocks all third-party content (images, scripts, ads, etc.). It uses a simple rule set that does not need to be updated. Although there may still be unwanted content in the requested resource, all third party tracking is prevented effectively.
Enjoy browsing the web with Roadblock, a free content blocker. It blocks all forms of annoying advertisements on webpages, blocks all forms of tracking media used by websites, comprehensive and optimized block lists. Using Roadblock will result in fast webpage load times, less bandwidth usage, and better battery life.
