    Wink Block Flash + Disable "Most Visited Sites"

    Hello,

    A few AdSweep users have requested an addon to block Flash animations in Chrome. I have developed one that works in Chrome, Opera and partially with Firefox. You can download it at the bottom of the www.adsweep.org page, along with another addon that clears the "Most Visited Sites" page in Chrome each time you open a new tab.

    I have been the only one to test them so far but it should work fine!
    Should you need help, feel free to discuss on the discussion list. I hope you like these addons.
    Cheers,

    Charles.

    I need help, I went to http://adsweep.org/ and at the bottom of the page is the thing I need but I open it and it's a bunch of code or something. I'm thinking I need to download one of the Chrome files (at the top of the page) and then put that code somewhere. Anyway I don't want to seem stupid, but I want that feature can someone please help me out

    See http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/...rome-7483.html for more info on how to install User Scripts with Chrome.

    I'm pretty sure that this is what you're looking for.

    Kyrax solution is half there if you know how to create the user Script in the 1st place ...

    To create open Notepad ...

    Copy the content on the AdSweep page to Notepad

    Then Save as document type > All files
    Name your document eg > NoSpeedDial.user.js

    The '.user' is very important

    Then follow the instructions as per the link above ....

    Enjoy :-D

    Quoted directly from adsweep.org

    ---------


    If you use Chrome, extract AdSweep.zip, rename the AdSweep.js file to AdSweep.user.js (important!). Check out your version of Chrome. To find out, open Chrome, click the wrench icon, and select "About Google Chrome". It will display the version in the subtitle of the "About" window. Then:
    If you use Chrome 1.x, create a folder C:\scripts, copy the AdSweep.user.js file into C:\scripts. Right-click the shortcut icon of Google Chrome, either on your desktop or in your "Start" menu, and click "Properties". Select the second tab named "Shortcut", and in the "Target" field, append --enable-greasemonkey with a space inbetween. For instance:

    Before: C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
    After: C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-greasemonkey

    Don't forget the space in between; the command flag --enable-user-scripts has to be outside the double quotes, if any. Click "OK" to save changes. When you're done, close your browser, reopen it and access www.adsweep.org, you should see a red notification in the upper-right corner of the page (only displayed on www.adsweep.org), saying AdSweep is installed.
    If you use Chrome 2.x, find out your user data directory (mine is C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\ on Windows Vista). Create a "User Scripts" directory inside your user data directory (in my case, that is C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User Scripts\). Copy the AdSweep.user.js file into your "User Scripts" directory. Right-click the shortcut icon of Google Chrome, either on your desktop or in your "Start" menu, and click "Properties". Select the second tab named "Shortcut", and in the "Target" field, append --enable-user-scripts with a space inbetween; the command flag --enable-user-scripts has to be outside the double quotes, if any. For instance:

    Before: C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
    After: C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-user-scripts


    Don't forget the space in between. Click "OK" to save changes. When you're done, close your browser, reopen it and access www.adsweep.org, you should see a red notification in the upper-right corner of the page (only displayed on www.adsweep.org), saying AdSweep is installed. On the dev channel, you can also install the AdSweep Chrome extension. Please take a look at the documentation to install the extension. Also, if you decide to use the extension, append only the --enable-extensions command flag (see the aforementioned documentation for details). Once you have installed the AdSweep extension, restart Chrome (with only the --enable-extensions command flag appended), and access chrome-ui://extensions/ to make sure AdSweep is listed.

    ---------

    Make sure your shortcut is similar to the bold text.

    EDIT: And just to make sure you understand, the file should be named AdSweep.user.js [not cloud.js]

    Good luck !

    Don't give up like that !

    Make sure that you double check the following and please post these information so we can help you !

    - What version of Chrome are you running ? (Wrench -> About Google Chrome)
    - What is the "target" of your Google Chrome shortcut ?
    - Where is your user script located ? What is the path / file name ?

    We'll be in a much better position if you give us these informations.

    Don't give up yet !
