Default Blocking Adverts

some, but not all people are aware that Adblock Plus,
has since v2 - been expanding it's whitelist.

this has the effect of 'allowing supported advertisements'
- from certain companies - that paid to be on that whitelist.

But now:

- things get even more interesting.

so- some other people - are moving over to it's fork:
- Adblock Edge.

I haven't noticed any big whitelisting under Firefox.
Another reason to steer away from Google Chrome hé!

You're right.
Just feeling a bit irate against Google for getting pushy against adblocking.
But there are a few others on the horizon too!
Adguard for one, and μ Adblock (not ready for Firefox yet).

In the end, if they respect Adblock Plus whitelisting rules, i could live with that but i do like the option to decide. After all, who pays for my monthly internet bill?

Adblock Edge will be discontinued in June 2015:

- if you search for it via the FF add-ons list. ..

I stick with adblock because of the element hider extension for it. I don't mind blocking ads when I see them myself
