Adblock totals

My adblock reports it has suppressed 150093 adverts on my Chrome browser since I installed it.  The inventors deserve a medal.

open blockable items
Filter preferences
disable on community plusnet
disable on this page only
disable everywhere
and
Options
and there is nowt in the options for displaying the results,    only for "resetting" them.... !
( my adblock icon is not a "hand"  just ABP in the octagon )

I too was running ADP but on reading 2u2me's link I uninstalled and installed AdBlock and already my counter is at 96!

Re: Adblock totals

So you're changing it simply for a total? There is actually a total available in ABP but is somewhat hidden away, specifically on the filter options window (it was there the last time I looked, which was a little while ago). Huh

Re: Adblock totals

No, not at all, totals are of no interest to me. I changed it as like others I assumed it was the 'GT' version of AdBlock.

Re: Adblock totals

Oh, ok. Just seemed like that was important with the way it was mentioned in your post. Sorry.

Re: Adblock totals

To also add further to the mix, there is a fork project off of ABP called ABP Edge where they removed all the "sponsored ads" and kept to the original ethos of ABP. It's currently only available as a Firefox add-on.
