    Default Adblock for Chrome

    How long, oh how long?

    Probably many like me out there sticking with Firefox until Chrome gets a plugin for blocking ads.

    As soon as Google release the API it will be done. Considering Chrome is Open Source there's really not much stopping people releasing Adblock for Chrome even though it's against Google's whole business model.

    The way i see it is people who run Adblock don't want to see ads and won't be clicking them anyway, so implementing measures in to Chrome to stop ad blocking is kind of pointless.

    I'd hope never. Or if they do come up with a way to block people from visiting my site that block ads so that I can then charge them for use. Most sites are funded by ads, I don't think its much to ask a user to view them in return for the great content they get.

    Default an adblock bookmarklet for google chrome

    Here is some bookmarklets that are useful, the first one filter java/flash/...

    http://blogote.com/2008/featured-art...fox-addon.html

    in case the page does not work, here is the adblock script (put this in a bookmark) :

    javascript:(function(){function R(w){try{var d=w.document,j,i,t,T,N,b,r=1,C;for(j=0;t=["object","embed","applet","iframe"][j];++j){T=d.getElementsByTagName(t);for(i=T.length-1;(i+1)&&(N=T[i]);--i)if(j!=3||!R((C=N.contentWindow)?C:N.contentDocument.defaultView)){b=d.createElement("div");b.style .width=N.width; b.style.height=N.height;b.innerHTML="<del>"+(j==3?"third-party "+t:t)+"</del>";N.parentNode.replaceChild(b,N);}}}catch(E){r=0}return r}R(self);var i,x;for(i=0;x=frames[i];++i)R(x)})()

    also: since Chrome is so fast with Javascript, I think a more powerfull bookmarklet could filter objects based on the domain that they link to (ex: ad.publicity.com). This script could download an adblock list from : http://easylist.adblockplus.org/adblock_rick752.txt and filter elements. If I have time I will try to do something and post it back.

    But if your good in javascript your contribution is welcome !

    update: I found another adblock bookmarklet which is better !
    From : http://subsimple.com/bookmarklets/collection_layout.asp (use the Netscape 6+, Mozilla, Opera 7+ one)

    Here is the code :
    javascript:function C(d,o){v=d.createElement('div');o.parentNode.replaceChild(v,o);}function A(d){for(j=0;t=['iframe','embed','object','marquee'][j];++j){o=d.getElementsByTagName(t);for(i=o.length-1;i>=0;i--)C(d,o[i]);}g=d.images;for(k=g.length-1;k>=0;k--)if({'21x21':1,'48x48':1,'60x468':1,'88x31':1,'88x33':1,'88x62':1,'90x30':1,'90x32':1,'90x90':1,'100 x30':1,'100x37':1,'100x45':1,'100x50':1,'100x70':1,'100x100':1,'100x275':1,'110x50':1,'110x55':1,'11 0x60':1,'110x110':1,'120x30':1,'120x60':1,'120x80':1,'120x90':1,'120x120':1,'120x163':1,'120x181':1, '120x234':1,'120x240':1,'120x300':1,'120x400':1,'120x410':1,'120x500':1,'120x600':1,'120x800':1,'125 x40':1,'125x60':1,'125x65':1,'125x72':1,'125x80':1,'125x125':1,'125x170':1,'125x250':1,'125x255':1,' 125x300':1,'125x350':1,'125x400':1,'125x600':1,'125x800':1,'126x110':1,'130x60':1,'130x65':1,'130x15 8':1,'130x200':1,'132x70':1,'140x55':1,'140x350':1,'145x145':1,'146x60':1,'150x26':1,'150x60':1,'150 x90':1,'150x100':1,'150x150':1,'155x275':1,'155x470':1,'160x80':1,'160x126':1,'160x600':1,'180x30':1 ,'180x66':1,'180x132':1,'180x150':1,'194x165':1,'200x60':1,'220x100':1,'225x70':1,'230x30':1,'230x33 ':1,'230x60':1,'234x60':1,'234x68':1,'240x80':1,'240x300':1,'250x250':1,'275x60':1,'280x280':1,'300x 60':1,'300x100':1,'300x250':1,'320x50':1,'320x70':1,'336x280':1,'350x300':1,'350x850':1,'360x300':1, '380x112':1,'380x250':1,'392x72':1,'400x40':1,'400x50':1,'425x600':1,'430x225':1,'440x40':1,'464x62' :1,'468x16':1,'468x60':1,'468x76':1,'468x120':1,'468x248':1,'470x60':1,'480x400':1,'486x60':1,'545x9 0':1,'550x5':1,'600x30':1,'720x90':1,'720x300':1,'725x90':1,'728x90':1,'734x96':1,'745x90':1,'750x25 ':1,'750x100':1,'750x150':1,'850x120':1}[g[k].width+'x'+g[k].height])C(d,g[k]);}A(document);for(f=0;z=frames[f];++f)A(z.document);

    I for one am tired of searching and finding a whole load of sites claiming to have the adblock plugin but all have a tutorial on how to use privoxy. I could have done that with Internet Explorer.

    People should stop posting fake crap just to get attention.

    You can use GreaseMetal to implement adblocking capabilities to Google Chrome as discussed here:

    You want to block people from viewing your site because they don't want to click on a bunch of *&^%$#@ stupid ads? Good luck to you buddy. Your site mustn't be that important if you're willing to lose so many users. I'm sick of being offered ****** and half price memberships to online dating agencies...

    Well, you could always give ChromePlus or SrWare Iron a try... both have adblocking before page loads.

    Firstly, t4tipu please just go and die somewhere will you? Spamming idiot. Your site is full of outdated crap, and you aren't going to win over members from here, I can tell you. Just shut up, close down your site, and die. In any order.

    Blocking ads in any browser is very easy. Start here and follow the simple instructions.

    Nothing more required, I promise you.

    Oh, and any other idiot starts blabbing about Adblock+/Plus and Chrome? Spam the crap out of them, report them for spamming, whatever. Do anything you feel in the mood to shut the pricks down or turn legitimate users away. Time ordinary folks kicked these morons into the gutter they crawled out of.
