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.

google and k5 should be commended for their non-obtrusive text ads, and salon's "view one big add to get a premium pass for hte whole day" idea is wonderful. there are other ways of making money than slamming your readers with popup adds and animated images embeded in the text that make it impossible to read the page like this one i actually foudn in the wild: <http://eds.org/~joschi/web_ads_suck.gif> ... trying to make money like that is a dead end, and mozilla is forcing the content creators to be more.... creative in how they make money. terrrific.
