[Request] optional (user-controlled) detailed information on blocked content

  • I'm aware this is striding a very fine line between your engine-level ad-blocker and core engine-level functionality.

    What I'm requesting is for your engine-level ad-blocker to override the core functionality and provide (enabled) information about blocked content like a traditional extension would.

    basically, instead of seeing this:
    (I'm aware that this is core functionality, not your ad-blocker)
    blocked.png
    when this "extension" is enabled:
    opera.png
    the displayed blocked information would optionally be overridden to look like something more expected:
    UBlock.png
    Avast.png
    BDTL.png

    this is useful for:

    • development: providing quick and easy information of what content should be removed.
    • Knowledge: paranoid users (like me) who want to know everything about what content is being blocked for various uses
    • security: experts who need to know this information to keep their databases up to date
    • control: if users want the option to allow specific domains regardless of the warning

    note that this request asks merging the ad blocker with the content blocker if this for some reason isn't done already 😉
