    Default Finally!

    Whoa..... Google text ads have finally made their debut. Yeeehah, nice one Fairfax .

    Peel-me is still very, very badly broken though .


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Edit: For those who still prefer the 'nothing but the forum' look, here's the updated CSS:
    Code:
    /*remove ads and misc branding clutter, clean up layout */
    .fairfax_nav,
    #jcornerSmall,
    #jcornerBig,
    #advert-banner,
    #header,
    #navigation,
    #page-peel-right-6,
    .tfoot,
    .sponsored_links,
    table[width="160"],
    td[width="180"],
    td[width="170"],
    td[width="300"],
    div[align="center"] a[target="_new"],
    div[style="text-align:center; border:1px solid #cccccc; padding:5px; margin:0 10px;"],
    div[onmouseover="peel()"],
    img[alt="PC World Forums"],
    embed[name="jcornerSmallObject"],
    embed[umode="transparent"],
    div embed,
    div iframe,
    object
    {display: none;}
    The line reading ., should actually read . t f o o t , (although without the spaces) - for some reason vbulletin eats it.

    Top & bottom. I'm happy enough viewing the google text ads - it's fair enough that Fairfax should want to earn a bit of cash from this site - but page killing peelme ads are a bit much. Google text ads also load one hell of a lot faster than the crud they have been putting up here in recent months.

    The peel me would have been tolerable if it was smaller active space

    FF + Adblock Plus + No Script.

    Always works, people dont listen, keep complaining.

    Wow ... all those apps and plugins just to block the ads

    I just use Konqueror, with its built in filtering ability, and no memory leaks, I have no problems

    Just 2 add-on's lol. And no-script also helps keep the browser safe. I would like to use Konqueror. I'll download it and that emulator(?) that makes it run on Windows this weekend.
