Description (last modified by greiner)


In #1526 we were creating the very first version of the General tab. There are still some changes that need to be made to the "Further blocking lists" section. Therefore we need to make the following changes to finish this section.

What to change

  • Change title from "Further blocking lists" to "More blocking options"
  • Add tooltips for the following elements
    • read more

      By default, Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads, including video ads, animated ads, noisy ads, flashy banners, pop-ups, pop-unders and much more. In addition to ads, Adblock Plus can also block tracking, malware, social media buttons and more to increase your safety and privacy online.

    • Disable Anti-Ad blocking Messages

      The Adblock Warning Removal List removes obtrusive messages and warnings targeted to users who use an adblocker.

    • Disable Tracking

      Adblock Plus can disable tracking (e.g. from ad agencies) to further protect your privacy on the web.

      Companies such as ad agencies are tracking your online activity and browsing history every time you surf the web. According to Stanford University research, Adblock Plus is the most efficient solution available against third-party tracking companies.

      Note that this feature may conflict with Acceptable Ads, which allows some nonintrusive ads to be displayed, as well as the tracking that is needed to measure the performance of those ads. This is necessary because some websites only earn revenue from ads if their impact can be measured.

    • Disable Malware Domains

      Increase your protection against malware, viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, adware and more.

      If your computer is slow at startup or riddled with pop-ups, it may be infected with malware. Computers infected with malware are vulnerable to all kinds of cyber attacks, including stolen identity. Infected computers can also be used to send spam emails or attack other computers or servers, stealing passwords, social security numbers, personal documents and credit card information.

    • Disable Social Media Buttons

      Adblock Plus can disable social media buttons on websites, ensuring that social networks can’t create a profile based on the websites you visit.

      Buttons used to share content on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and others are placed on almost every website that you visit. Even if you don't click them, these buttons send requests to the servers of the social network which use information to create a profile based on your browsing habits.
