It was working a few hours ago and is working now. Great article even as an intro to Chrome.

Terrawarra,
It says that Adsweep complements AdThwart:

For a more comprehensive blocking "blacklist" you don't have to do anything with to get working, AdSweep complements AdThwart nicely.

Yeah, that first link was the dodgy one,.. Rhiannons' latest link working just fine,.. thank you.
I learnt a few more tricks for Chrome on this site ! I have a question regarding the last post by "Nikkoli" on this paricular articles' forum where a point was mentioned that "Earth feature" from Google Maps will not display on their own Browser(Chrome).
A reply from someone said that he should "Use the plug-in dude!"..
What plug-in is he referring to ?

Thanks vasa1,.. sometimes I just need to be pointed in the right direction,.. "the older I get, the better I was"

Also appreciate the fact that "AdSweep complements AdThwart nicely".

cheers

Running Chrome 5.

Took a look at AdThwart and saw this here:
Seeing some ads momentarily as the page loads? Extensions can only remove resources after they are loaded, not stop Chrome from fetching them.


Me no like. This isn't how AdBlock Plus works for Firefox. So the question for me is this: do any of the extensions work as AdBlock Plus does? Meaning, I don't want to download the ad.

Here's something similar for the "AdBlock":
Quote:
3. We're waiting on a Chrome feature that will allow us to block ads from being downloaded. Until then, we remove them after the fact. This means that even if you subscribe to the EasyPrivacy list, your browser will still be pinging the URLs that track you.
+++++

And what follows is for AdBlock + Element Hiding Helper:
Quote:
For now, AdBlock Plus subscriptions are supported, but only for "elements hiding rules", because Chrome does not yet have “content policy”. However, you can use checkbox "use blocking rules" for conversion "blocking rules" to supported format.
And a difference between Chrome and Iron is here (ibid):
Quote:
Also you can use this extension together with Iron or ChromePlus which supported real ad-blocking.
And this bit is confusing to me but sounds promising:
Quote:
Latest versions support the real blocking google-ads. (original idea by aaafwd, afaik).

Wow, it makes me want to ditch all the ad-blockers and use the HOSTS file to block stuff.

Just in the hope you're not being sarcastic , I too rely a bit on the HOSTS file and rules in my firewall (PCTools) to block some of the easier ads.

If you are looking at HOST files and have some advice I will be grateful but we better do this in the appropriate thread or else ...
