Even though I have GIF animation disabled and a Host file that blocks most adverts the animations on pages like this one (http://www.thetechzone.com/?m=show&id=439&page=1) become really annoying when I am trying to read.

Fortunately you can add a Kill button (http://nontroppo.org/wiki/PowerButtons#kill) to your Opera's toolbar that will do just that - kill almost anything on a webpage that is annoying you. :thumbs:



The kill button is utterly invaluable. It basically can kill elements on a page. The selected element will be highlighted with a red square, if so this means left-clicking it will remove that element from a page. Press escape or Click kill again to exit the kill mode.

Opera is a FREE alternative browser to Internet Explorer that can be downloaded from www.opera.com or from MajorGeeks (http://www.majorgeeks.com/Opera_Without_Java_Now_Freeware_d559.html).

Opera 8.51, a security and stability upgrade, has just been released which all current Opera users should install. It is available from the above links.

Speaking of which 8.51 (http://www.opera.com/download/) just came out.

The v9 preview has/had a few bugs.

I tried that, and it had too many probs. So, went back to 8.5.

I used to use Opera, but when they released 6.5 a couple of years back it ended up in the recycle bin.

This kill script does a good job.

You have to be careful, or you'll be looking at completely blank screen lol.

It not only blocks ads. It kills / removes whatever completely. Ads, and text.
