Hi there. I'd like to say thanks for AdBlock - 0.3 killed the vast majority of browsing annoyances, and 0.5 has gone even further. The list of blockable elements is absolutely superb!

I'd like to offer some feedback for the next build.

1) What happened to version 0.4? Did I miss something?

2) Would it be possible to replace the AdBlock label in the status bar with some sort of funky icon? I was thinking of something along the lines of the Firebird Stylesheet Selector icon...

3) Could some form of AdBlock Wiki possibly be established? I'd like to give a big thanks to Rue for explaining in the forums how to uninstall AdBlock 0.3, and some form of Wiki with similar entries (e.g. what overlay Flash does, examples of simple and regular expressions) would be really useful.

(Puts flameproof trousers on) This isn't meant to be a criticism, but rather a way that I can help to make AdBlock THE essential Firebird extension.

Does anyone else have any feedback to offer?

1. The 0.4 development branch utilized a much less reliable approach to blocking. Its backend was based on userContent.css modifications, and once the limitations of this approach were evident, it was dumped in favor of an XPCOM approach.
.
Adblock's version-num. was incremented to indicate the new backend. If you hadn't guessed, we're perpetually remaining a development branch, now.
.
2. An icon is definitely coming.
.
3. Since Wiki's have no inherent author, why don't you start one? I can't say I see an audience for this, but hey- stranger things have happened.
