Default Add blocker on rt?

I'm looking in to buying a rt tab, more specific the surface 2.
I know I can't have everything but is there a way to install a add blocker?

Are there things to do as we android hardcore users are always dooing stuff to make the experience better on our devices.

Within IE, the built-in Tracking Protection feature makes a pretty good ad-blocker (there's only one 'd' in 'ad' or 'advertising', by the way; 'add' is a verb meaning to combine things or create a sum). Outside of IE, your best bet is to either use a custom HOSTS file (you may need to tell Windows Defender to exclude the HOSTS file from monitoring, as it resists efforts to change it) or use an ad-filtering proxy server.

These are approximately the same way the Android tools (that I'm aware of) work, by the way.
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


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.

You can edit the host same as pc. Just need to add host to exclude on Defender or it will revert.
Giant signatures are annoying.
