Default Adblock Plus

Can someone tell me about Adblock Plus ? After installing it, I was really happy that I don't have to see ads on youtube video anymore. But someone told me that this extension is spyware.

I've been using adblock for years. Never had a problem with it.

No it's not spyware, It is to stop unwanted pop up ads and other annoying things in your browser. It's a great extension for your browser.
