What kind of ads does Block Ads block? How does it work?

Block Ads currently uses ‘host’-based blocking methods (so in practice, it works similarly to a Pi-Hole). While in its current form you’ll still see some ads (like video ads), Block Ads does block the vast majority of ads.

We’re currently in the process of adding in HTML content filtering (so that Block Ads will include additional ‘page’ filtering — similar to how AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin work — nixing those pesky video ads, among a few other types) — Block Ads v2 should be available soon! Stay tuned for updates!
