superior to AdBlock Plus (and a note on importing AdBlock Lite filters) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I tried this addon as an alternative to AdBlock Lite and so far Adblock Edge is the better addon in my experience. Page load times and browser performance are better than AdBlock Lite (only a bit, but noticeable enough to be worth the switch), and I particularly like the Adblock Edge's settings/filter manager.
* ISSUE : "Adblock Edge fails importing AdBlock Lite custom filters"
I've noticed other users have had this problem and it would appear to be a bug... but luckily there's a simple workaround. The problem is that AdBlock Lite exports custom filters to a .txt file that begins with a line of text that says "[AdBlock Lite 1.1]". However, Adblock Edge will only accept imports of files that begin with "[Adblock Plus 2.0]". The fix is simple: open the file in a text editor and change " [AdBlock Lite 1.1]" to "[Adblock Plus 2.0]". Voilà, Adblock Edge will now accept the file and the import proceeds as normal.
