adblock-plus doesn't require root, and can block ad from both web browser and app via both 3g/4g and wifi

Does Adfree just populate the hosts file like Adaway?

Adaway is open source and does exactly the same thing. I prefer open source. Adfree is not, i can't see how one could be better than the other beyond the politics of software. They both use the hosts file, so it's moot.
