Ad Block

Post by relation » Tue Sep 18, 2007 11:48 am

Firefox uses an extension named Adblcok Plus, it is better than the one in AB:
1. use of subscriptions to lists of advertising links: so most of them are blocked by themselves based on a good source.
2. customizeable blocking: one can block one link, a website, part of a site, and almost anything one the internet using this tool, and it is very user friendly. you can right click on a picture, a link, a frame or anything esle and add it to the block list, or edit it to apply it on similar links before adding it.

this Adblock Plus works best with NoScript and if both of them are applied in AB it would be great.

that's becasue most all ads I see are script based, to allow the advertiser to keep track of views/clicks/etc.

So can anything be done about it...
this is probably the only drawback, but also a major one, I have experienced from using Avant...
