    The Tracking Protection Lists do the work of blocking Ads just fine. Plus I run IE in Enhanced Protected Mode which prevents unwanted extensions from running (of which I don't need) anyway, and with ActiveX Filtering, Flash won't run unless I allow it.

    ABP may be good for some, but I don't think it will be customisable as the FF/Chrome versions.

    Edit: You may be better off with a desktop installed Ad Blocker.

    But then again it is only preview for IE so ram usage will most likely go down

    Don't Microsoft's TPL use the same lists as ABP? It won't work on IE10?

    Not by default. Their default lists are crippled somewhat to keep advertisers happy, but nothing is stopping you from adding the right one :)

    Working for me, Tested on various websites and loading times were quicker by a second or two but some ads were still missed.

    Also memory usage could be better.

    For now using the fanboy tracking lists are still a better option in my opinion.

    Known problems are here.

    Thanks :)

    I have been using Fanboys TPL on IE10 and it works very well.
    I believe it is a little late for Adblock Plus on IE unless it works on older versions of IE without Tracking Protection.

    I really see no benefits over just using IE's Tracking Protection with Ghostery.

    Thanks.:D
