New Firefox Extension Is Killer

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Blinky the Shark, Mar 9, 2007.

  1. I just discovered a killer new (January, IIRC) extension for FF that
    works with Adblock Plus.

    You're not limited to blocking images and Flash, now...this one lets you
    block by element. Text, a bunch of images...whatever's in there never
    gets to your screen. And this is accomplished by clicking a cursor
    cross-hairs on the element you want to block, the hover having
    highlighted it and shown you its description. Kill a whole paragraph of
    text and images? Sure! :)

    As a test, I played around with the IMDB pages. I don't use any of the
    clicky stuff at the top, and I don't need the Amazon ad towards the
    upper right corner. (You may; I only offer this as an example.)

    Go look at this IMDB movie page (Ben Hur):



    That only took about four point-and-shoot actions.

    On your recommendation, I am going to give it a try.

  4. Sometimes you have to go shopping for elements. In my example IMDB
    page, there is a series of buttons at the very top for various IMDB
    features. I found that a couple of them could be individually nuked,
    but by sweeping my cursor around that area I also found the division
    that included *all* of them, and nuked that in one satisfying blow.
