Taboola ads

  • I'm using Opera 41.3.2246.112432 and my tablet is an Android 4.2.2 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 - 7.0. I was wondering whether Opera could make any progress in blocking these Taboola 'from the web' ads in its default ad blocking signatures. I'm currently using Adaway and various hosts files, but nothing seems to stop these ads. For e.g. at the bottom of Gamefaqs.com I get totally irrelevant click-bait type ads about American preachers and Donald Trump. If that is not possible could there not be an element-hider style option in the menu which allows users to one click block elements? I know firefox has this as an extension, but I feel Opera would benefit from it immensely if it was built-in. Really don't want to drop Opera as this browser with Adaway is almost the perfect combination for slower tablets.

  • Not only that, Opera proxy refuse to complete opt-out option on DAA/NAI lists. See http://aboutads.info/choices-mobile/# and http://networkadvertising.org/choices/# where failures must reach 1% instead 50. This behavior started last November.
