Adblock Plus for Dolphin browser (Android)?

Postby TBolt » Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:59 am

Hi all. :)

I'm a long-time fan of Adblock Plus for Firefox. Unfortunately, Firefox isn't really proving itself to be a solid browser for Android, yet. The Dolphin browsers, though, are REALLY good. Is there any chance that Adblock Plus might be made available for the Dolphin browser?

Currently using Dolphin HD for phones and Dolphin for Pad (beta) for a Honeycomb tablet.

Thank you.

The latest Firefox mobile has support for AdBlock Plus. Although, the Firefox mobile browser isn't quite ready for daily use, imho. Waiting patiently.

I replied to somebody's mail on this topic - the Dolphin browser doesn't even support extensions. The existing "extensions" are all produced by the browser maker and communicate with the browser via some undocumented interfaces (likely binary interfaces). This isn't a mechanism that third-party developers can use.

Thank you for the response, Wladimir.

I was happy to see AdBlock Plus working in Firefox mobile. Now, Mozilla just needs to get that browser more developed.

Thanks again.

They are improving it, Firefox 12 is going to have a native UI which will make it a lot faster.

The Mozilla wiki says the native UI is coming in 11.

Yes, that's what I've been told as well now.

IMO, the goals of ABP are not compatible with commercial browsers with a history of anti-user behavior: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphin_Br ... y_concerns

We need greater adoption of FOSS in the mobile ecosystem. Fighting back against the commercialization and walled gardens must be made a priority before it is too late. Keeping ABP on Firefox mobile draws users away from the commercial browsers.

The real problem is that the technology isn't compatible; you'd think in fact that if a browser allows extensions then something like ABP would be a loophole around certain privacy-invasive practices...

I never paid the 'donation' fee to get the ad-free Dolphin because Dolphin Support never confirmed to me that it block ads on web sites. I read elsewhere that ads on sites aren't blocked.

This was the confusing email from Dolphin:

We have already added the feature of Dolphin license (removing ads in Google apps) into the latest Dolphin Browser HD v 6 version. You can have a try. :)

Regards,

Dolphin Support

No, the ads that *dolphin* are talking about, are those *internal* to the browser! :(

adblocking for websites, now that needs an addon...

http://www.freewarelovers.com/android/app/adblock-plus is one, Its starts up, but it cannot be found anywhere, except in 'settings, applications'... and it does not seem to work..

plenty of others about, but they need root.. (no, I'm not doin that... :P) My Opera works perfectly fine, its easy enough to add fanboys adblock list to that..

If you want to use your browser for web flash, youtube, etc, then mozilla is a hopeless heap of.., when ALL the other browsers have no problem!!

There is a lastpass and on for dolphin, which is third party.

I just found this thread by googling because I recently started to use Dolphin on my Droid.
On Dolphin's website they write about an SDK: http://dev.dolphin-browser.com/get-started/
Would that be a way to get ABP running on Dolphin?
