Is it possible to extend the adblock feature in the way firefox adblock plugin does ?
http://adblock.mozdev.org/

The main feature is that it popups a window in which you can choose the content of the current page to block.

It is a more speedy way to blacklist contents...

In OW, you can right-click and choose "Filter image."
 
I think that that option is quite unuseful; first of all it doesn't work with flash ads and moreover it block a single image without letting you customize the url.

I think that the firefox adblock plugin i posted early is the best way to integrate simple ads-blacklisting.

If you look at some of the other threads on this topic, you will see that a better way to block flash ads has been discussed quite a bit. I think there's even some messages from the OG on it.

Here's one thread on it: http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=990

I disagree. I use Adblock and find it horribly user unfriendly. For example, if I go to a site that has 30 ad images on it and 50 other images on it, I have to scroll through the long list to try and find the file I want to block. Finally I find, for example, asldjkdjkl09834980ejadkjfd.swf and block it. Oh, wait, that wasn't the right one, I needed to block asldjkdjkl098349803jadkjfd.swf.

That works, but when I reload the page now there's a new ad, jafidusodiufo9d8f08sdfj.swf. Sure I can go through and enter a string that blocks that image server, but I can do that in OW too.
 
:) I prefer the adblock way ... which for me runs smoothly...
