Description

Suggestion: Add the open source ad blocker AdBlock Plus (https://adblockplus.org) to TBB.
Main reasons and benefits:
1-It is already in TAILS' IceWeasel
2-Saves TONS of bandwidth for the Tor network
3-Removes a vulnerable platform, which is the ad networks, cookies, scripts, objects, etc... which the NSA is using to track Tor users, therefore increasing Tor users' privacy and security.
