Welcome to the AdBlockLearner project page!
WARNING: at this point, this is only a proof of concept, so use at your own risk! Be sure to check the known issues.
What is AdBlockLearner?
AdBlockLearner is, for now, a standalone extension (yes, this is an oxymoron, but bear with me) for Mozilla FireFox, that learns to block ads based on simple user feedback:
- If you want to block an ad, right-click on the picture and select "Block Me". Not only that particular picture will be blocked, but AdBlockLearner will also block pictures that are "like" it, which mostly means pictures that come from similar URLs.
- If you want to unblock a picture because it shouldn't have been blocked (this can happen especially in the early stages, as the program is learning what to block and what not to block), right-click on the page (well you can't right-click on the image since it's been blocked, right?), click "Unblock" and select the picture to unblock from the list.
That's it, you just finished reading the user manual! No need to create complicated regular expressions!
