    Default Adblock That Works-- Not Software, Just Javascript

    There are a lot of solutions for Adblock, but not many actually work like the mozilla version. I have checked a whole bunch of solutions in the forum, but I have only found one that works. And it does not require software. I found it on a blog located at mark8t.com

    Here are the details:

    It's a bookmarklet like most of the Google Chrome "Plug-in's". You click it on the page you want to hide the ads. Want to see them again? Just reload the page. Works like a charm in the testing I have done.
    Enjoy

    Looks absolute useless.
    Proxomitron with PEraser should be the best solution for now.

    There's a much better one than this (not a bookmarklet !!)...

    This is also a Javascript but far superior ...

    It totally removes all signs of the ad from the page being viewed ...

    Its called Adsweep, you can get it here ... http://www.adsweep.org/

    The new one at mark8t is not a bookmarklet, it is a Google Extension using the new Google Extension documentation. Anyway, it does not matter, no ads is no ads. Whatever works if fine

    Got to be honest didn't notice your 2nd post so was just quoting from your original post.

    However to be fair, I've gone back to the Mark8T site and looked at their latest version of AdBlock ...

    It works fine (on what I've tested)...

    I didn't follow their installation (on the C drive), I put the extension folder in my Chrome installation which is in keeping with the Chrome philosophy ..

    So I guess it's a matter of choice, User Script or Extension ...
