    What is it?
    Adblock is a content filtering plug-in for the Mozilla and Firebird browsers. It is both more robust and more precise than the built-in image blocker.

    Adblock allows the user to specify filters, which remove unwanted content based on the source-address. If this sounds complicated, don't worry: it's not.

    Just add a few filters. Every time a webpage loads, Adblock will intercept and disable the elements matching your filters. See?- nothing to it.

    heck if I can find a download of the product at that site.
    it looks like a program worth trying if someone ever locates where it can be download from.

    i recommend using the filterset.g as well, and if want to give whitelisting a try (filterset.g whitelist beta also available) then use adblock plus. to add to brians suggestion, if u want more power and ur not afraid of potential issues or the fact that mozillazone highly doesnt recommend it, then i suggest tabbrowsing extensions

    While Tab Browser Preferences is pretty good, I much prefer TabMix FROM HERE which gives much great configurability IMO. :)

    I've used the first one, then discovered this little beauty.

    Especially love the 'mouseover' on the TABs to 'steal focus' without clicking.

    You also have the option of altering it directly from the Tools Menu.


    Cheers, TAS

    PS: Also in case you are wondering, the theme is SphereGnome 1.2 FROM HERE :)

    Depends if you want it simple & working or if you want it advanced & working ;)
    I like it simple as I don't wan't any advanced settings for my tabs :)
    As long as it works, I'm a happy man.

    I think I may have to check out Tabmix.

    As for Adblock, I use Adblock plus with filtersetg. I will be sure to check out Rezjor's list tho.

    Thank you. :)

    KISS = Keep It Simple Stupid = going down the most simple path usually results in a better result.

    Ah so anyone not interested in making their tabs advanced, are stupid.
    Not really a good argument to make me switch from the stupid to the uh.. more clever side?

    If you want certain websites to work, yes. :D

    But will FIREFOX WORK ? Am not all that concerned about the websites working being very selective of which websites I visit. Don't really use java but on very rare events.

    Thank You J for responding.....was about to install firefox when this thought hit me......guess I will just pass on using Firefox.....if it requires sun java

    You don't need the Java plugin. Give it a whirl.
