    Sorry if this is the wrong group but my Google mojo has left me and I
    don't get the answer I need in the many Nokia and N800 forums about
    this.

    When I'm not in range of Wi_fi I use my mobile phone for data transfer
    for my N800 but don't want to use half of it downloading adverts. Can
    anyone recommend a decent adblocker or give some tips on stopping them
    from getting near my machine like something along the lines of a HOSTS
    file? Any help or pointers appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Hey WC;

    Adblock Plus was ported to the mozilla-based browser found in OS2008.
    Not sure which OS version you're running but, if it's OS2008:

    I have not used this and would recommend checking any comments about the
    extension before applying.

    hth,

    Is very helpful. I'm not on the tablet just now but first sight looks
    like this is the thing I need.

    Hmm, this may be a solution to my adblocking problem too.

    I had been using privoxy to block stuff for a whlie. I havent seen gthe above
    solution, but it may be easier to setup than privoxy.
