Blocking ad display, not download
Authored by: rootpoot on Sep 15, '03 11:18:04AM

With CSS methods, you're still downloading the ad files. This has two important implications.

1) Your're not saving any bandwidth.
2) The webmaster has no idea that you chose not to display the ad. As far as they know, they got the impression.

Blocking ad display, not download
Authored by: VEGx on Sep 15, '03 11:21:55AM

Well, I don't know WHAT happened, but... I had another css file before that was supposed to colour LINKs... so maybe that was the culprit... but with this css my pages RENDER much faster.

Either way, if it was because of the ads blocking or because of replacing the old css file... I'm happy I tried the file provided by the author of this post!! :)
Thank you.

According to a small test I did, I have to conclude that Safari does _not_ download the contents of remote resources within a 'display: none' block (like a DIV or a SPAN), so it will surely save you bandwidth.
