Ad blocker blocks advertising components (images, flash animation, subframes) inside web pages based on URL matching. Ad blocks maintains a built-in block list, a user-defined block list and a user-defined allow list. Each list includes URL wildcard patterns. Any web resources matching the block list but not matching the allow list won't be downloaded. The built-in block list is fairly large and aggressive. It is likely to block web pages or components that you actually want to view. If that happens, you can add the web addresses that you want to visit into the white list or disable the Ad Blocker completely.
You can quickly enable/disable Ad blocker by selecting "Tools:Ad blocker:Enable Ad blocker" from the menu.
Ad Blocker Options
To configure more options of the Ad blocker, select "Tools:Ad Blocker:Ad Blocker Options" from the menu. The following options are available
Writing URL Patterns
Both the allow list and block list consist of URL patterns. You can use * to represent zero or more characters, use @ to represent one character.
You are encouraged to report the domain or URL of obtrusive and notorious ad servers to us so that we can include it into the built-in black list.
