Hard to believe, but IE is worlds second most used web browser with over hundred million users daily!

While developing add-ons for Internet Explorer is not less than a nightmare, I could still find one for skipping YouTube ads.

While it’s not a browser add-on and you don’t install it the way you install add-ons on Firefox or Chrome, it pretty much does what it’s meant to. It can block ads on all sites, videos and flash games including YouTube. And using it is simple. Simple download the latest AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer from here and once the setup is downloaded to your computer, install it like you install other software and you are good to go. You might need to restart Internet Explorer to see AdBlock Plus in action.

This add-on is compatible with most versions of Internet Explorer including IE6.  It’s compatible with Enhanced Protection Mode, the mode available by default on Windows 8.1 based IE11.
