    Yes, the icon is annoying. CTR+ALT+B closes (hides) the bar. Makes only sense if you don't have any other extensions at the bottom. If you have.. then you are out of luck *g*

    I love the extension, but an you make it so that it doesn't go on the toolstrip. I like the sleek look of Chrome without the toolstrip.

    Hit CTRL + ALT + B to make the bar go away

    Default Why doesn't it work as well

    I thought that since Adblock+ uses the same EasyLists as Adblock Plus(firefox) that It would block all the ads just like ABP does on FF. It doesn't though. The easylist don't do as good of a job. Adblocking is weak with this extension.

    Why doesn't it give the same results even though it uses the same lists?

    It's my understanding that it doesn't block ads, they are still downloaded and Adblock+ just hides them. I think I also read that Chrome still doesn't have an API to block content. Meanwhile I'm using Privoxy plus this extension.

    Can anyone tell me where this extension stores the strings for the content it hides? Thanks.

    This sounds reasonable since I don't see any speedup from using this extension on "heavy-ads" pages.
    Can anyone confirm that Chrome doesn't have an API to block content?
