    Default AdBlock Plus to Allow "Non-Invasive" Ads



    Odds are that more than a few of you are running a little browser extension called AdBlock Plus. This software was originally developed to combat the obnoxious ads of yesteryear, but its developer says things have changed, and he now wants to use AdBlock to reward sites that run “non-invasive” ads. As a result, the default set up of AdBlock Plus will soon block fewer ads.

    Just add enough filter subscriptions and no ads then :-) Besides default setting on adblock plus is quite limited

    This is an obvious reaction to cubic money assimilation. He's bought out.

    It's probably more or less him reacting to a legal threat. Have to keep an eye on it though. The new version was forced on me and I have not noticed anything out of the norm... Using a couple filters. He does have a check box to disable the ones the product feels are ok.
