Bleeding Edge: Try a new, comprehensive ruleset

I haven't yet gotten around to writing a converter for Adblock Plus's filter rule lists (which is slightly complicated by the fact that we don't have a complete 1:1 mapping between our respective functionality, though it is close), but in the meantime, I spent a couple of minutes to create a host-based filter ruleset from the list at yoyo.org.

If you want to try this rather large rule file (nb: this many rules may degrade AdblockIE's performance), you can download it from . You should then copy this file to C:\Program Files\af0.net\AdblockIE\blacklist.xml (or wherever you installed AdblockIE to), overwriting the existing file. Reload IE and you're good to go.

Coming soon: An Adblock Plus-compatible importer.
