For Chrome you can also check µBlock. It's a MUCH lighter and faster adblocker but with features similar to AdBlockPlus.

If you care about having more control on what you can allow/block, its big brother HTTP Switchboard by the same author is even better. When configured correctly it can act as a traditional adblocker, as a script/plugin blocker like NoScript, as a Cross-Site filter like RequestPolicy, etc...
