A short story;
The original version of Adblock was developed by Henrik Aasted Sorensen in 2002
Last Adblock version maintained by Henrik Aasted Sorensen was Adblock 0.3.

Starting with Adblock 0.4 (around beginning of 2003) the official developer of Adblock is rue (nobody knows his real name). rue was also active in the Adblock Project Forum on writing a good filters list.

(Wladimir Palant) implemented is own Adblock 0.4 in June 2003
and sent it in. And was rather surprised to receive an answer from (rue) and to learn that Adblock has been developed further. Some of is code made it into the official Adblock? The code to flash the page elements corresponding to the selected address did. The ancestors of the current “object tabs” did. The window to list all blockable items on the page did. In January 2006 Wladimir Palant release Adblock Plus 0.6. Still active today with is version 2.9.1

2006-09-28 Michael McDonald fix a security hole with v is last contribution.

-Adblock 0.5, Development Build .3 , Nightly .043

Updated June 30, 2006 Works with: Firefox: 1.0.7 to 1.5, Mozilla 1.3.1 to 1.7, Seamonkey 1.0 and Netscape 7.0.2

Test with OS 9.2.2 Mozilla Wamcom 1.3.1 and Netscape 7.0.2

To Instal: Wamcom or Netscape clic on "cancel" to install at the browser root or it wont work.

Once installed, its a snap to filter elements at their source address.
Just rightclick: Adblock: done. Filters use either the wildcard character *
or full Regular Expression syntax. Hit the status element and see what has or hasnt been blocked.
Whitelisting : for whole sites, pages, or individual elements.
Statusbar-Indicator can be Right-clicked, to list options..
.or Middle-clicked, to quicklaunch Preferences.
Background Images can now be Right-clicked > Adblocked.
ClickImport : allows filters to be imported just by right-clicking the webpage.
All objects are "tagged" with a floating tab, for one-click-filtering
Statusbar-Indicator can be clicked to list all blockable-elements (including scripts)
Now blocks everything -- backgrounds, script-serialized nodes... and yes, even scripts.
Quickblock : quick-hiding of page elements, non-retentive shift + doubleclick ( + optional-drag)

cmd + shift + b :: blocking toggle
+ a :: list all blockable-elements
+ f :: flash override toggle
+ k :: quickblock toggle (default-on)
+ p :: preferences
'cmd' maps to 'ctrl' on pc's

Direct link to install Adblock still working:

Architecture: PPC

A few notes:
- ClickImport requires the first line contain only: [Adblock]
- Whitelisted pages+sites are auto-pruned after 6months of non-use !!!
- The only thing missed is a Counter for each filters block.
- Not working with Classilla.
- Need Stuffit 5.5
