AdBlock 0.3 Available for Mozilla Firebird

Monday June 9th, 2003

mrtech writes in with news about a new version of AdBlock, the image filtering add-on for the Mozilla Application Suite and Mozilla Firebird: "AdBlock 0.3 has been released for Firebird. The interface has also been updated and it's now a Firebird extension. The great thing is that AdBlock doesn't have to be reinstalled after installing the daily builds because it's a user level extension." A 0.3 version for the Mozilla Application Suite is in the works.

You can get rid of the symptoms of your annoyance much more easily. I agree. I hate the ads that loop at a very high speed. So I only allow them to loop once.

Not only can you control if images are allowed to animate, and how many times.. but you can also just press the stop button. The animations will cease. The scrolling Marquee isn't even standard HTML, and can and should be disabled--instructions are at Firebird Help.

I think that Mozilla strikes the right balance with what it chooses to build in.
