New: Adblocker integrated in Iron

Postby SRWare » Sat Oct 11, 2008 4:00 pm

The wish of many users comes true: We integrated an Adblocker in Iron!
With a filterlist so nearly all online-advertising can be blocked. A working list can bedownloaded under http://www.srware.net/downloads/adblock.ini and just has to be copied to the Iron folder (e.g: C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\). Note: You must first get the latest version of Iron you can find under "Downloads".
So Iron is the first Chromium based webbrowser worldwide which has an adblocker included.

I use a program called BFIlter which is a filtering web proxy. I think it is the best and works with Iron.
Here's a link if you are interested: http://bfilter.sourceforge.net/

Newbie here and currently very impressed so far.
Re Adblock, above suggests downdoading adblock.ini. This downloads a very large list of "stuff" starting with:-
# Fanboy's Adblock list (Iron-Chrome)
# Checksum: m1ZnEHitzqjyUOcmtWJ9Dg
# Updated: 16 May 2012 (5:40:10 PM)
# License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5
# Email: fanboyadblock@googlegroups.com - Project homepage: http://fanboy.co.nz/
&ad_height=
&ad_number
&ad_size=
etc, etc

Do I just copy/paste all of this straight into my C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron folder? I already have an adblock.ini (1KB) file there

Only reason I'm asking is I don't see the adblock logo/picture in my browser as I do in Chrome

logo for adblock.ini ? there isnt one. It is not a dynamic app like any extension, its a static one builtin feature.

OK, thanks. I only asked as there's one next to the bookmark "star" on Chrome but as long as it works that's fine by me
thanks again
