Adblock plus and feedview

Postby Julan » Wed Aug 03, 2005 4:01 am

Ok, i don't know if this is possible. Deer Park just got the ability to view atom and rss feeds from within the browser window. see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=302121. if you view the rss feed from slashdot, you see the ad. is it possible for adblock to be able to block ads in rss/atom feeds?

Well, it looks like feedview is going to be removed for 1.5 and put back in for 2.0 when it's more ready.

You can get a similar effect in Firefox if you use bloglines.com to read your selected rss feeds. For example, Scientific American has text ads about every 3rd or 4th entry. They all begin with ADV: but I doubt if this is a standard for all feeds.

Any chance of filtering rss text ads if viewed via a browser window?

This is going to be an increasing problem as the ad spam pollutes more and more rss feeds.
