    ABP has a setting to allow advertising that's non-obtrusive (meaning no flash voice/video shit and no complicated scripts), and it's on by default.

    I can appreciate the point of this, and I say yay.

    I suppose if it was for Chrome, google probably gave them an ultimatum.

    Nice idea. I sometimes feel a little guilty about blocking ads. But I still do it, cause ads suck. Although, this doesn't seem to be in the Chrome version yet?

    Must read changelogs properly more often- thanks for alerting me to this. Debating now whether to leave it on or off for clients when I sort their machines out but I have got lazy this year and switched to automated installs (got to love mozbackup) of all the addons and such. Also I guess I have to wonder what will slip through when wound together with my usual selection of ghostery, requestpolicy, beef taco, noscript and greasemonkey not to mention with flash finally thinking about going downhill.
    I do hope however they achieve their goal of making adverts a bit nicer for all concerned, I wish there was a better/easier way of monetising websites but I suppose I have to be a realist.

    lol, I sort of misread the title as "APB" the game... anyways, good for people with limited bandwidth.

    One question though, will this block those video ads that play before a youtube video starts..?

    It seems to for me, but that might be a result of flashblock or something instead.

    Opera has its own ad blocker.

    yeah I know there's a Block Content feature, but this looks like it has more features and I just found the K-meleon build odd. on the other hand, the K-meleon community may be small, but some of the people there are really active, so maybe someone just adjusted the Firefox code to it, or helped the makers adjust the code.

    not that I block ads anyway. I used to have a decent HOSTS file for that, but I dont use it anymore, so the sites I go can have their revenue. the blocking ad videos could be useful tho.
