Heartily agree. I don't even see a hint of an ad with uBlock Origin. Whereas, if you go to cnet.com with Adblock installed you're in for a big surprise.

If I use uBlock Origin, do I need AdBlock Plus at all, then?

No, it replaces AdBlock Plus, you can even use the same filter lists.

^ This. The "non-intrusive" option has been there for at least two years.

Unless they are broadening that scope

I've only heard of ABP doing it.

I have the "allow non-intrusive ads" turned off yet I have been getting some ads for the last few months. I can tell them to be blocked manually but they are no longer automatically blocked.

Yes! You still can't watch South Park episodes on the main site, without getting 10 Old Spice commercials thrown in your face, each episode!

How about we just click on 'Filter Properties' and then un-check 'Allow some non-intrusive advertising'? Voila! No more sellout ads.

Not really sure how a free add-on for a web browser could afford shills, but whatevs.

The shit that they're doing is enough of a reason not to use their app anymore. It's like the bullshit bitcoin miner from uTorrent. After the shitstorm calmed down, they took it out and apologized, but they try to pull a fast one on their users and it blew up on their faces. No thank you.

I stopped using uTorrent and switched back to classic Azureus (2.5). Vuze is a POS. Yes, you have to use Java but it's better than having shitware installed in a fucking torrent program.

Most newer versions of apps are useless ad-laden junk anyway. You're better off installing a rollback from oldapps.com or oldversion.com.

Even better, let's tell people that we're not blocking non-intrusive ads by default on a page that comes up after you restart your browser, and not only tell you how to disable it but GIVE YOU A LINK TO THE OPTION DIALOG THAT HAS IT as well.

People that badmouth ABP for this are a special kind of stupid.

If you're using CNet for downloads, don't. Either download the program directly from the developer's website or a reputable software site like Softpedia or FileHippo. Even Tucows has a stupid ad-tracking downloader now.

The program DDownloads gives you direct links to the installer program so you don't have to jump through stupid hoops. I don't read CNet's blogs, so I can't comment on those. AFAIK they're not worth reading anyway because CNet is owned by CBS, which of course is part of the M$M.

Link? The only ads I've seen get past ABP without 'allow some advertising' checked are ones that sites build into their pages and serve themselves (ie. internal rather than syndicated advertising).

yeah - it's not that bad - the ads they let through are quite non-intrusive and all ads can be overridden and hidden. if they forced you to see sponsored ads then that would be different....

...why the fuck would they do that. Let ads through your blocker, but don't ruin the other ones out there!

Because adBlock looses value if it is the only one that sells out. He wants to sell out but also mitigate the cost of selling out.

My answer is uBlock Origin, faster (noticeable), not sold out and does the same.

Add ghostery, disable Java, and no more ads or tracking for me.

I just call up my cousin Jerry, get him to visit the site I'm trying to look at so he can describe it to me. No more spyware, malware, ads, nothing but pure Jerry action.
