Confused Ad blocker for android

Hello, I'm in no way tech savy but I'm looking for an ad blocker for using on my phone.

I dont want to block ads in apps just in the browser,

I imagine some sort of ad blocker where you type in the address of the ad and then the ad will no longer load.

Realy I dont want to block ads either I just want to block certain websites.

The truth is there are some websites that I shouldn't visit even though I do and I want to use an app or a plug in of some sort to make it harder to get to these sites.

Because of there pornographic qualitys.

I dont want to have to root? My phone.

If it matters im using a Huawei Ideos x5

Hopefully someone can help me with this.

You will need to get firefox for android. https://market.android.com/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox&hl=en Get it from the market. After it is installed on your phone, move it to your sd card ( you have to do this, required, no way round). Then go to ad block plus website, development builds, with firefox. Install the development build, Development builds. It may or may not lock up the phone. Got to application task manager and stop firefox, if it is still running. Restart firefox. If it does not ask you for the blocking list, you need to uninstall it and reinstall it. It will only work with firefox, but it does work.
