Adblock automatic filter lists in Konqueror


Hi guys,

I am trying to use Konqueror as my default browser in xfce. However, the ads while browsing is driving me crazy.

My question is: I have been using some Easylists in Chrome/Firefox which are missing in the Konqueror automatic filter. I just wonder how can I add the lists in the automatic filter?

Thanks in advance.

A much better solution to any addblocker run through your browser is, believe it or not, a list that simply is put on your system and availble from;
http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

Yep it is a site for primarily Windows users. You may want to look at it to find out what it does though.

The actual file you need is at;
http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt

All you need to do is add the thing to your existing;
/etc/hosts file

below anything that is in there. That file as it is on your install should be from about 2 lines to 9 lines long.

With this added it will be more like 15332 lines.

This file is checked first when trying to connect to any address on the web. If it is found in this file then the numeric address found in this file is used instead of connecting to a dns to find the "real" numeric address. All addresses that are "blocked" by this list are not really blocked. They are defined as an IPv4 address of 0.0.0.0 which is a null address.

This is better than a block list using "readable" addresses. Main reason is that you have cookies from these people already on your system probably. Doesn't matter what they try to send when "calling home" with this in your /etc/hosts file because when they attempt that they will not connect either.

This does mean some maintenance however. The guy that has done this for years updates the list fairly regularly and the site should be checked occasionally to see if there is a new on. The current one is from 4-1-16. I would be looking for a new one about 5-14-16 give or take.

Add blockers that actually use this sort of blocking of numeric addresses mostly use this list themselves from this very source.

You can subscribe to get email notice when a new version is available. I don't, I just check in to see.
