Is AdBlock available for Internet Explorer?

No, sorry. We make AdBlock for Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Opera on the desktop, 64-bit iPhones and iPads running iOS 9 and later, and some Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 devices (Samsung Internet browser only).

Why don't we support Internet Explorer? It's more that Internet Explorer doesn't support AdBlock. AdBlock is a JavaScript extension, and IE doesn't support JavaScript extensions.

But wait, I have AdBlock and I use Internet Explorer!

Check the button in IE's toolbar. Does it look like a stop sign with a hand or does it contain the letters "ABP"? Adblock Plus (ABP) is an ad blocker that doesn't use JavaScript and does run in IE. ABP is an unrelated product developed by a different company. (Why the names are so similar is an interesting bit of Internet history.)
