Adbock detector detector

What is really annoying is going to sites that nag you that ad-blocking software was detected. In most cases its dismiss-able but some have been denying access to their whole site. Is there a way development can detect when other sites are using "detection" and emulate or make the web site "think" they downloaded all the ads, but obviously do not display them?

Have to stay one step ahead of some of these guys and if there was a mode that emulated everything is all ok to a site, but still provided adblocking services to the end user, that would be phenomenal.

Sounds like you'd need a dual layered rendering engine, and I'm not sure that is something that the scope of a browser plugin has access to accomplish. I think something like that would need to be done within the browser itself.

Imagine if you will the browser requests the site in its own virtual layer, and any scripts that check for particular elements to be loaded would be found because it is in this virtual layer. However a rendering engine on top of that after the fact these scripts were run and checked would reporocess the images and from there ads selectively stripped out from display. In memory they are there, and to all the code on the webpage they are there, but just not rendered or transferred to the display driver.

It sounds a little complicated so maybe to protect the integrity of the browser, Google and Mozilla do not allow plugins to achieve this level of integration between the browser and the system.
