Ad Blocker for IE 8


According to a friend of mine here at MS, there isn't a really good ad blocker for IE8 yet so he wrote his own at http://adblockie.codeplex.com/.

    You have a blog!

    A Belgian guy (don’t ask) told me that IE7Pro uses the pluggable protocol handlers approach we talked about for ad blocking (if only IE7Pro worked in IE8). This has a big advantage in terms of not even downloading the ad (and not needing to parse the DOM, so not being subject to tricky JavaScript that messes with the DOM later). But it has a disadvantage in that it can’t be used to do what NoScript does.

    So I think this (http://adblockie.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=565) is the next step for AdblockIE. The final frontier.
