I must note an extremely useful improvement over the previous versions: it seems to block image *downloads* instead of simply not displaying the images. Thus it saves bandwidth for us dial-up users. My only complain (wrt the ui) is the lack of "new" button when defining new filters. It would be quite confusing for novices to understand that one needs to press Enter.

Cudos to the people working on it!
