Difference between Adblock Plus vs Adblock

I originally used Adblock Plus back when I used Firefox. I refused to use Chrome because the YouTube ads were harassing me. I've given Chrome another go and Adblock Plus now has the capability to block Youtube Ads (as does this one), but it sports a cleaner and prettier interface than this, Adblock. I'm curious as to know what the difference between Adblock and Adblock Plus aside from the fact that Adblock has more detailed stats regarding ads blocked and has a less clean interface. Thanks!

    The main difference is that they are competing pieces of software, made by completely different groups of people! See this article.

    We don't keep a list of feature differences between AdBlock and our competitor, Adblock Plus; all we can say is that you can try both and see which one you prefer.
