Ad Block functionality

Post by Flynn_Taggart » Tue Dec 25, 2012 4:10 pm

Hi everyone,

Been lurking for a few months so I decided to sign up and ask some questions, if you all wouldn't mind.

Regarding the ad block function on the latest version of Avant, it doesn't necessarily block all content even if you put the correct commands on the black list. Wouldn't there be a way to simply enter a directory of sites you visit that you want to block ads on?

Citing the Iron feature where can create the text file and add in the sites you want to stops add on, wouldn't that be easier here? Also I know how much of a scam Iron is having used it.

I'm not adamant on using the Chrome Ad Block extension as it openly states full access to your data undeniably, I was wondering if we can get around this or maybe I've just missed something on this forum...

Thanks in advance.

For example, if you want to block the small ads on Gmail, it won't block. Some websites use different ad services, so if you enter the command for the current one, the ad service will change when refreshed, thus re-appearing intrusively.

Iron seems to be worthless due to the functions it claims to outright remove when you can disable these features on vanilla Chrome anyway. I don't really support the ideology of developers' ideas, but furthermore it doesn't really do anything different from Chrome other than the manual ad block listings.

Avant does indeed need to improve its adblocker feature.
