Chrome AdBlock extension
I’ve been thinking about writing a userscript to prevent loading of particular network resources. The problem is that particular FQDNs seem to either be blocked outright, or timeout by this Niometrics thing.
This makes for a poor web browsing experience, so I made my own little list:
http://*.addthis.com/* http://www.facebook.com/* http://connect.facebook.net/* http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/* http://*.fmpub.net/* https://secure.google-analytics.com/* http://www.google-analytics.com/* http://*.googlesyndication.com/* http://*.pinterest.com/* http://*.sharethis.com/* http://www.stumbleupon.com/* http://platform.tumblr.com/* http://platform.twitter.com/*`
The good thing is that wildcard is a supported feature, makes things much less verbose than say a custom hosts file.
