How good is a content blocker? You could say that it is great if undesirable content is blocked while content that you want to access is not, but that is only taking content that you could identify visually into account. Most content blockers reveal information about the level of blocking, e.g. how many items were blocked and how many were not.
Ad Block Tester is a free service on the Internet to evaluate content blocking solutions. It is not designed to be a benchmark, but it reveals the level of blocking against a set of hosts that are very popular.
Just visit the Ad Block Tester website to get started. The test runs for a couple of seconds before the results are displayed. You get a percentage score, e.g. 84% of hosts blocked, and a list of blocked and allowed hosts afterwards.
