I guess you should ask Microsoft, this is the forum of ABP, an extension for Firefox and Chrome. Nothing in common with IE 9.

Sorry i thought the list came from Adblock
javascript:window.external.msAddTrackingProtectionList('http://easylist-msie.adblockplus.org/easyprivacy.tpl', 'EasyPrivacy Tracking Protection List')

ABP is the Firefox extension.

Easylist is just one of the several "subscriptions" you can use with ABP, where "subscription" means a pre-made list of filter rules.

I did not know that Easylist maintained also a list for IE, anyway their site is:

LorenzoC, EasyPrivacy is the only subscription that we officially maintain for Internet Explorer, although an adapted version of EasyList is also available.

peters, whitelists are required to prevent items from being accidentally blocked by other filters. The rules are limited in scope and only protect content when there is no other viable alternative that will allow a domain to function correctly.

Thanks for explaining what the whitelist is for Michael, I was worried it was something "sinister"

Michael, could you tell me how to get the other list you mentioned (easylist for IE 9) please, it looks more comprehensive.

The address of the combined EasyList and EasyPrivacy Tracking Protection List is http://easylist-msie.adblockplus.org/easyprivacy+easylist.tpl; it may be installed using the link provided at http://tpl.funkydude.co.uk/. Please bear in mind that we do not officially support the EasyList rules and that many cannot be converted to TPL format due to the constraints of Internet Explorer, although I still suspect that the number of false positives should be relatively low when using the subscription.

I added a function to the script that generates EasyList and EasyPrivacy to automatically convert from Adblock Plus to TPL format, but have not heard of any other subscriptions that have been adapted for Internet Explorer.

Any plans to generate a German Easylist+EasyPrivacy in tpl format?

Where could I reach the maintainers?

EasyList Germany is available in TPL format at http://easylist-msie.adblockplus.org/easylistgermany.tpl; EasyPrivacy is located at http://easylist-msie.adblockplus.org/easyprivacy.tpl and must be installed separately. The EasyList Germany authors may be contacted in their section of the EasyList forums.

I certainly hope Fanboy, Hubird, and the maintainers of Malware Domains, Malware Patrol, Rickroll Blacklist, and Peter Lowe's Ad Servers start using this to make TPLs from their ABP lists.

How do I manually add the link to IE9?

Could you add javascript enabled links to the supplementary subscriptions to http://tpl.funkydude.co.uk/ ?

I created a simple HTML file for EasyList Germany + EasyList. Download it, open it with IE9 and click on "EasyList Germany + EasyList zu Internet Explorer 9 hinzufügen", click on "Geblockte Inhalte zulassen" and on the link again.
