The EasyList filter lists are sets of rules originally designed for Adblock (adblock.mozdev.org on WayBackMachine (archive.org)) that automatically remove unwanted content from the internet, including annoying adverts, bothersome banners and troublesome tracking. The filter lists are currently maintained by four authors, Fanboy, MonztA, Famlam and Khrin, who are ably assisted by an ample forum community.
The links listed below allow you to select filter lists for use in your browser provided that you are using a compatible ad blocker (tested with Adblock Plus, AdBlock and uBlock Origin). Furthermore, EasyPrivacy Tracking Protection List is available for Internet Explorer 9 and higher.
EasyList is the primary filter list that removes most adverts from international webpages, including unwanted frames, images and objects. It is the most popular list used by many ad blockers and forms the basis of over a dozen combination and supplementary filter lists.
EasyPrivacy is an optional supplementary filter list that completely removes all forms of tracking from the internet, including web bugs, tracking scripts and information collectors, thereby protecting your personal data.
Fanboy's Annoyance List
Fanboy's Annoyance List blocks Social Media content, in-page pop-ups and other annoyances; thereby substantially decreasing web page loading times and uncluttering them. EasyList Cookie List and Fanboy's Social Blocking List are already included, there is no need to subscribe to them if you already have Fanboy's Annoyance List.
If you should encounter unwanted items or problems with the EasyList filter lists you should report the issues in the EasyList Forums. This will allow members to assist you in resolving problems and will notify the authors that the filter lists should be updated, a change that will rectify the issue for all users. You can also request assistance by e-mailing the EasyList authors directly.
Problems with other filter lists should be reported to their respective authors.
