Download Adblock Plus

Unpack this package with any ZIP unpacker into the directory of your K-Meleon browser, all files will be placed into the right directories. Then start K-Meleon, it will ask you whether Adblock Plus plugin should be activated — confirm this. That's all, Adblock Plus should work now.

For K-Meleon 1.5 you can download Adblock Plus 1.0.2.
