Im looking for new ad blocker. Till now i was using Adblock plus with Google chrome, but there is this site that i have to use (because of work) that have really aggressive ads all over it. Itryed to add as many lists as possible to ABP so it can block them, manually added tons of elements to block and yet every time i refresh the page it still loads the ads. Tested Adguard and it worked even worse with that site :/  any other suggestions? Or it will be better if i just move to FF for better security

scriptsafe for chrome, you can allow/disallow scripts (and at same time, ads since ads run scripts) based on source.

not working that good for me... when i try to access the site it says " you need JavaScript enabled to access this site" :/ 
I really hate that site but i cant get my boss to stop using it since its a mail and we get ~100 new mails daily and changing to another mail would cause major fall

well, the drawback on scriptsafe is that by default, it blocks ALL scripts on site. you need to allow scripts you deem safe, then reload and see what scripts said scripts load.
after a few reloads, the site should work normally.

As noted, it disables scripts on ALL sites and to get Tom's to work decently, you need to allow quite a lot of them.
So.. for personal use, I like it, if I would have to suggest it to someone who doesn't know about it... nah, allowing scripts on site by site basis is a lot of work.
That said, it likely isn't best thing to apply in this situation.

yeah i guess. I also have to set it up on multiple computers used by people with no tech knowledge so i prefer something simple

I've seen some in 30's and 40's blocked but that one takes the cake.
