Summary

Modern browsers have largely conquered the problem of popup windows being created by obnoxious web sites. Nowadays the bad guys have moved on to what is called "slide-in" or "fly-in" advertising. There you are reading an article and some ad starts sliding in from the side to nag you to subscribe to something or other.

I had been using the venerable Remove It Permanently
(RIP) add-on for many years but it was not up to the job of removing slide-ins. This add-on is my replacement for RIP. It uses the latest Firefox add-on technology   to be much more aggressive in rooting out this stuff.

Note: This is the Web Extension version. See the Release Notes for the features that have been lost.

User reviews
Может резать "сложную" рекламу, с которой обычные блокировщики не справляются. (например реклама яндекс браузера при поиске чего-то на яндексе). Просто это расширение нужно "обучить", т.е. несколько раз заблокировать одну и ту же рекламу вручную.
