Dunno if this has been suggested before (btw you should ad a suggestions forum or something), but i thought up some other suggestions Very Happy

1. What about blocking/removing tables, nowadays alot of annoying ads have started using textlinks and tables instead of images since alot of people use blockers, id like an option to remove the table (and also its content)

2. And undo button/shortcut, simple enough, a shortcut that lets you undo the last thing you added, incase you add the wrong thig or something. If youve got a long list (or a sorted one) it can be quite a bother finding the link you just added, would be easy enough to add a function for this, right?

you can use Nuke Anything though the effect is only temporary (until page reload)

"Undo Last" would be a good option to add to a right-click menu for the "Adblock" in the lower right (preferably as part of making it an icon instead of text).

I don't know if it's better or worse then Nuke Anything, but the Quickblock freature of Adblock works perfectly for me. It is also temporary, blocked elements are shown again after page refresh.

Adblock can temporarily block things too. Just Shift+Double Click on whatever you want to remove. With Shift+Click+Click'n'Drag you can remove several things at once.

The tempory removal of the ads is not good enough. I don't even bother removing ads if I don't think I can remove them on the next visit, unless they are overbearingly obtrusive.

The ability to remove selected HTML elements, like tables and forms in addition to iframes will be the key to Adblock's future success.
