I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I searched and couldn't find anything.

 

I downloaded the edge beta today and is the built in ad blocker gone?  I recall it used to be in settings... I think it was based off adblock Pro based on the icon?  you could enable it and then had the option to turn on or off acceptible ads.

 

I looked through each settings page and unless i'm blind, i don't see the option anymore?    FYI i'm not referring to the one in site settings that seems to do nothing.

Hi,
Edge insider Doesn't have any adblocker, what you saw was probably an extension that you had downloaded before.
try searching and installing it from here:
