Suggestion: Provide the option to disable Adblock by default

Postby Icecube » Sun Oct 26, 2014 12:18 am

Hi,

I am OK with Ads on most websites, and want to support the websites that I like by allowing them to show ads. My main reason for installing Adblock is that on some websites, the ads are so annoying that I just want to block that single website (or maybe just a hand full). In the Adblock menu, there are three options:

1) Disable on whateverdomain.com (The current website)
2) Disable on this page only
3) Disable everywhere

With this system, if I want to only block ads on 1 specific site, I'd have to surf the entire web to disable it everywhere (except on the 1 site that I want to keep blocking). It seems kind of logical to provide the user the option to have Adblock disabled by default, and then enabled for a specific site when the ads are just too annoying.

What do you think?

or ...you could use the filters to achieve what you want:

use the filter (which whitelists all the domains with some exceptions):
Code: Select all
@@*$document,domain=~example1.com|~example2.com|~subdomain.example3.com


where ~example1.com, ~example2.com and ~subdomain.example3.com are the domains on which you want ABP activated.
