I read often on here that "it's more complete" but nobody explains why. Adblock Plus's experimental build blocks the actual http requests within a page (I thought the stable version does this too?), it blocks ads in videos (including Youtube). It can block html elements, not just domains (does the .ini do this? I don't remember) and non-same origin xml http requests. Iron 14 and 15 have the 'experimental extensions' selection so it will work in either version.
Adblock Plus also autoupdates both itself and its lists. Fanboy lists are preloaded, doesn't get easier than that. I'm starting to form the conclusion that in terms of capability of solely blocking the domains they're told to, they're at minimum, equal. I can't find anything pointing to the contrary.
