Option enabling Adblock Plus only on certain sites

Postby poshoholic » Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:40 pm

I would like an option added to Adblock Plus that allows users to enable it only on certain sites.

Rationale:
To really manage the ad problem properly, multiple solutions are necessary. There simply is no one-size-fits-all solution that really does the job. I think Adblock Plus comes the closest, but it runs client side, which can be resource intensive if you have many tabs open in a browser (I always have *many* tabs open), and has to be managed on multiple devices independently. Pi-hole runs as a DNS/DHCP server, effectively blocking ads across all devices in a household, but it doesn't block as much content as Adblock Plus (Youtube ads, for example). As a Pi-hole user, I would like to fill in the gap where needed by running Adblock Plus, but I only want it to perform ad checking/blocking on specific sites, so that I can work with more optimal resource usage on sites where ads are already blocked while still keeping ads under control where extra blocking logic is needed.

Make sense?

Thank you for considering this enhancement.
