Ads are definitely annoying and stopping images from animating and / or blocking them is the way to go. But removing the ads from displaying or just hiding them does nothing to improve the performance of the page loading.

To do ad blocking right, this product needs to block the request. Then the page can load without also taking the hit of the request for the ads. For some of the sites I visit, when I remove the ads there is a very noticeable difference.

Did you actually read the Dev. page before you downloaded?

It does block ads -- and before they're requested. Make sure you've set Adblock to "Remove", not "Hide".

I was using an older build. This one is much nicer. Keep up the good work.

If images / flash animations / advertisements are blocked rather than hidden, won't advertisers become more aware of (annoyed with (afraid of)) adblocking software? Isn't it better to just let them think that their ads are being "properly" displayed? Or is there actually no way for them to know that their information is being blocked? Is there really no way for them to retaliate? I suppose we will end up seeing more text-based ads in the future.

So, what percentage of Internet surfers might be running Adblock? 0.001%? No one will notice...except us perspicacious and brutally-handsome Adblock users.

I won't tell them if you won't...

I hope we do....if ads were static text, I'd be far less annoyed by them than I am the flashing, talking "rich media" ads we're bombarded with now.

Heck, I MIGHT consider clicking on a text ad every great now and then. I never intentionally click ANY ad nowadays, just out of principle.
