AdBlock Plus has launched its first browser, "AdBlock Browser for Android."

According to the company, the browser "will block annoying ads automatically, which can save you battery power, keep you safe from threats and give you control of your browsing on the go."

AdBlock cited problems with its existing mobile software, AdBlock Plus for Android, as the main reason for building its own mobile browser. These included visibility and privacy issues.

The browser is currently in open beta, and can be tested by joining the Adblock Browser Beta Google+ community.
