Ad block plus blocking Adsense

Recommended Posts

I hate obtrusive ads that are obnoxious and take longer to load than the page I'm trying to read, so naturally I use adblock plus (with the default filterset, EasyList). However, I'd like to contribute to websites I visit, especially those using unobtrusive ads like text-only adsense. I know I can add individual exceptions, but I'd kind of like to have a different approach.

 

Is there a filterset for adblock plus that blocks only obtrusive ads?

Hello, Mr Skeptic, if you are using Mozilla Firefox I know there are several add-ons available through their add-on portal. If you search for the keyword "ad block" you should see all the available add-ons and some recommended options. If you are using Internet Explorer, I'm afraid you only option will be to search through Google. I hope this was help.

Yeah, I'm using Firefox. The thing is I am considering getting a filterset for my adblock that doesn't block unintrusive ads. You know, to reward them for not being intrusive.

 

However reading some more, it seems that it might be better to just whitelist websites I like instead.

Hmm... Did you sign up for their public service ads, or are they paying you for those too?

Mr Skeptic...This is what I do. Your question prompted me to ask on the Adblock forum about a filterset that allows only text ads but as yet no response..will post when I know,
