Default Internet Explorer 10 Addons

Currently, I am using both Internet Explorer 10 (Metro) and Nightly(Desktop Application) (unofficial firefox 64-bit latest version). I love IE10 but the reason i stick to Nightly most of the time is because i can add custom addons - my favorite being Adblock. this is basically the only reason i use nightly. is there a similar adblock extension for IE10? if so, please instruct me on how to install it so i can just dedicate my entire internet usage to IE10. Additionally, is there any way that i can make the metro version of ie10 show up on the desktop?

Thanks

you know nightly just refers to nightly builds, not just specifically firefox. Nightly builds exist for many software packages.

Metro IE on desktop, thats what desktop IE is for, they are the same render engine, just altered UI and more plugin support on desktop I think.

There are several ad-blocking extensions for IE. a quick search on "ad block ie" turns up a few of them. Some of them use AdBlockPlus filter sets, so you can use the same filters you use in Firefox.

However, there's also IE's built-in Tracking Protection filter. While technically not intended first and foremost as an ad blocker, it does the job well enough. Several popular Tracking Protection Lists, or TPLs, are available. The maintainers of EasyList (probably the most popular ABP list) build their list as a TPL as well, and there are several others that are highly rated. TP isn't quite as feature-rish as a dedicated ad blocker - for example, it won't hide the space where the ad *would* have loaded, and while you can turn it off per-site, you can't turn it off per-element - but it's built in, fast, carries no risk of malware, and I believe it works in Metro mode (I wouldn't actually know; I have no use for such a crippled browser mode).

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
