+ - Blocking annoying ads, leaving the okay ones 2 2

kestasjk writes: Is there an AdBlock system which makes it easy to block annoying flash/gif/image based ads, but leave the text ones? I feel guilty about running AdBlock, but when I turn it off the non-textual ads just bug me too much (even though I find the text-based ads often interesting).

I could go through the massive AdBlock filter list and prune out the flash/gif/image ones, or start my own list and have to block out new ads, but hasn't anyone else dealt with this problem?

  • " Flashblock is an extension for the Mozilla, Firefox, and Netscape browsers that takes a pessimistic approach to dealing with Macromedia Flash content on a webpage and blocks ALL Flash content from loading. It then leaves placeholders on the webpage that allow you to click to download and then view the Flash content. "
  • Just stop feeling guilty.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?

Working...
