Karma Blocker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Having switched over from Adblock Plus I have to say this addon is pretty unobtrusive. I haven't had to tweak anything really except the aforementioned Yahoo Mail and added a rule for zillowstatic.com when I was browsing there once but all in all it's not caused me any problems. I prefer this a lot over adblock plus simply because it doesn't really need to queue up a black/white list of much so it ideally doesn't need much updating nor overhead on the browser.

add this:

name="Whitelist: Yahoo Mail"

it's totally a heuristic filtering app. You need to put in your own customizations if some site you like deviates from an acceptable norm. Use the monitor option to see what happens when you go to a site like mail.yahoo.com & it shows what rules fire off and why it was scored to be a blockable url.

documentation on rules is here http://trac.arantius.com/wiki/Support/KarmaBlocker/Configuration

you can also compare to other rules in the configuration for help.

3.6.* compatibility Rated 3 out of 5 stars

works w/ 3.6.9.

had to download the xpi,
rename it to zip
extract the files
edit the install.rdf file to <em:maxVersion>3.6.*</em:maxVersion>
then rezip the files and rename to an xpi extension. looks like it works

slow bringing up web pages. I've been using this for a year or so and decided I wasn't using it much. After A bout with this extension slowing down page loading times on even intranet web pages... well, this became an impractical add-on. I'm sure I'll enjoy my regained browsing responsiveness after using this extension for so long. I'll just go to their website if I really want to search for deals.
