More about this extension

This extension is not meant to remove all the ads from a page, but only those ads particularly intrusive, such as: overlaying in-document windows, scrolling banners, and co.

To disable the ads from the current page, simply click on the icon in the top right corner of the browser bar; click again to re-enable them. The current settings will be restored in the next session of the browser.

You can control some settings in the option page of the extension (located in chrome://extensions). For each element, you have 3 options:
allow: the element will be left untouched;
block: the element will be replaced by a fake element so you can choose whether to remove it or to unblock it;
remove: the element will be removed by default.
You can create per-site settings by adding a new profile (see the profile sub-panel).
Since version 0.3, there is also an option to block all sites by default.
Since version 0.2, it’s possible to manually remove an element. To do this, block the current site (click the AntiADS icon), press CTRL  and click on the element you want to remove. The element will become translucent and AntiADS will display a confirmation dialog before removing it.

Change Log:

- Remembers manually removed elements (NOTE: only works with elements that own ID, NAME or CLASS)
- Supports setting a keyboard shortcut to block the page
- Configurable shortcuts

    Great ad blocker already and it appears to only be beta so should only get better.. Removed ads that Adblock + extension missed.

  2. Aleksi Hänninen says:

    http://sourceforge.net/antiads is not found… Is this extension valid?

  3. Paul Weibel says:

    By default it doesn’t block any ads, but if you click the icon it’ll block all advertisements on the website and will remember that you wanted those ads blocked in the future.

    Good enough for me though. One click and they’re all gone from youtube, another click and they’re gone from some website spammed with ads.
