built-in ad blocker

  • I am starting to wonder how the built-in ad-blocker works, and here's why:

    I am browsing a website and the icon tells me 2 ads are being blocked (therefore my site also loads 63% faster in the test that compares loading the site with and without ads).

    So far, so good one would say, right?
    No, not right! I am browsing my own website and I am absolutely, positively and damned sure I am not running any ads.
    So... what's up, Opera?

  • Welcome to Opera's forums @Senhorron!

    If I'm not wrong, EasyPrivacy block trackers...

    Do you have that list enabled?
    Try to test it disabling that list.


    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Test profile | Back up Linux · Mac · Win

  • My vote also goes to trackers, which incidentally also usually cause a big speedup when blocked :). As @zalex108 says, you can disable EasyPrivacy in Opera's Preferences to see if that was it.
