Blocking Snap and IntelliTXT pop-up bubbles in OmniWeb Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi folks,

I'd had just about enough of those snap.com bubbles that pop up on links, at sites like this one:
http://castingoutnines.wordpress.com...-time-machine/

To banish them, you can add this string to your Blocked URLs List in the Ad Blocking Preferences:
spa\.snap\.com
Wheeee~
 
Bill is my hero!
 
Sweet! Thanks. :)

Yes, I hate those stupid things too, and now they're gone!
 
Also! You can block the similarly annoying "IntelliTXT" ads on sites like this one:
http://www.macnn.com/articles/07/11/...us.first.look/

By adding the following strings to your block list:
intellitxt\.com
vibrantmedia\.com
 
Thanx for that great advice!!! WoooHooooo!!!

I hate those stupid things too. Grrrrr....
 
This page has more of those disgusting pop-up's. And the above blocked URL's are in place. They worked for a while, but now don't. Any idea's?

Look here.

I usually pull up the site preferences an disable javascript for annoying pages like this. i just want to read the content, pages load way faster with javascript disabled.

Thanx for the advice. I disabled javaScript and those little stinkers are now gone. I just love it that in OmniWeb we have individual site preferences.

Looks like:

/.*\.kontera\.com

Would get rid of the pop-ups on this page.
 
Works for most of the page, but still ended up with one of those crappy links.
