    Just a week or two ago I wouldn't have even understood why this is an interesting Vote. However thanks to Petruchio's home node and some hand-holding by ybiC I now know enough to keep it switched off when I'm out on the wild side of the 'Net.

    Thanks folks.

    Well said!

    I also block undesidered banners with it! Unfortunately, you can't block shockwave banners, and images that are in a subspace of the same web site you are viewing. I hope that it will be possible to filter shokwave's, and to filter banners by URL and not only by web site (e.g.: have http://this.site/banners blocked but all other images from http://this.site/ displayed).

    Ciao!

    The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).

      The Mozilla Firebird browser can block banner ads using CSS level 3 properties. Go here to set it up. It can do what you asked for.

        Yum! Seems to work with Mozilla 1.4.0, too! ++ for you, bunnyman!!! Thanks!

      On a related note to Bunnyman's post, there's also a useful little plugin for Firebird (it might work with Mozilla as well, I don't know) that replaces flash animation with a "Click here to play flash..." box. I find it especially useful when a site is determined to force feed me their stupid flash animations and I'm logged in to my main box from another city using my laptop and (slow) DSL service.
