Is it possible that you guys put a download link to the CRX-file on your website? I'm currently in a country where the chrome webstore is blocked and I want to install AdBlock.

Thank you,

    Hi Jeroen,

    Recent versions of Chrome don't allow installing CRX files from outside the Chrome Web Store. You can however grab the source code of AdBlock and load it as an unpacked extension. Please note that you will have to repeat the process periodically, since automatic updates are only distributed through the Web Store.
