don't connect to foreign servers Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
A simple network preference to prevent connections to foreign servers.

Example if I enter an address in the address bar such as http://www.pcper.com/
I want the browser to connect and load data only from http://www.pcper.com/ and not:

http://ad.doubleclick.net/
http://bitcast-b.bitgravity.com/
http://ctxtad.tribalfusion.com/
http://edge.quantserve.com/
http://partner.googleadservices.com/
http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/
http://static.chartbeat.com/
http://www.google-analytics.com/

Page loads are slowed considerably while the browser is trying to connected to so many (often excruciatingly slow) 3rd party servers.

It has become a never ending battle keeping my Hosts file up to date with all these servers.
 
We have ad block settings for this now. The Ad Block setting for "From third-party sites" will only load content from the primary host. And then there is the "From blocked URLs" that will not load content from anything matched in the black list.

We have requests for some form of "subscription" for the black list that would keep it up to date with the latest ad hosts.
