Integrate an ad-blocking system to Station (uBlock, AdBlock, Ghostery, etc)

Could we have any of the popular (and free, I guess) ad-blocking modules embedded into Station?

Ad Block Pro / uBlock – something of that sort.


Privacy: integrate ad cookie blockers, activate or deactivate per app

Agreed! This is one of the only ways that browsing in Chrome is a better experience. I don’t want to see ads in LinkedIn through Station.

SUMMARY

As a user I want to be able to install, activate or deactivate ad blockers to surf easily in every app (uBlock, Privacy Badger, SSL everything, etc) so that I can surf and I use without feeling that I am being stalked by companies.

GIVE US CONTEXT (tell us about the current experience)

When I configure a new service, like Gmail, I can see the ads or cookie tracker inside. I would like to not seeing them.

Also I should be able to choose which tabs/apps could disable this blockers, like Google Analytics or other digital marketing tools (adwords, hotjar, etc)

DESCRIBE THE IMPACT (how would it change your experience)

The main advantages for me are:

  • Faster browsing!
  • No annoying ads, cookie trackers or analyzers.
  • Better privacy :slight_smile:
  • Safer browsing while I am in China.

This would really be a slam dunk for station. I would love to see this happen.
