Ad Muncher: ad-blocking utility for Windows, now free!

bigcow2I know I don’t post much on this site anymore, but I definitely have some post-worthy news today. Ad-Muncher is now free!

For those who have never used the program before, it’s something that came out about fifteen years ago and has always been a paid utility. It’s an ad-blocker, but it’s a separate utility for Windows – ie, not a Firefox addon nor a Chrome extension. It filters ALL web-based traffic in the operating system which means it works with multiple programs – RSS feed readers, Outlook Express and so on. And it’s extremely small and efficient; I assume it’s written either in C or straight-up assembler. I’d rank it as one of the greatest utilities of all time for Windows. As of October, the developer is now offering it completely free.

Everyone should get this program ASAP. It was worth every cent when it was $29.95.
