    Specifically, sites where invisible youtube videos appear in the middle of the article.
    For example every article when you click on this www.protothema.gr
    I scroll down on a long article and out of nowhere a youtube video/ad appears between paragraphs.
    And no, using the built in ad blocking doesn't work for them.

    i don't block ads..... period..

    if any nasty website decides to be bloody jackasses... they get blacklisted and i never visit them again, they do not deserve hits.

    LOL! Didn't really answer the question there, Judas.

    Adblock - still the best one on any browser IMO.

    Adblock Plus - yep.. oldie that still works, but I find the above one better.

    i don't have an answer... other than that.... otherwise i would have suggested something... i just can't tolerate supporting that nonsense... so black listed and don't bother visiting those sites.

    I moved from Adblock plus to uBlock origin and I find that to be much better. Don't know if it exists for Opera though, I use it on Firefox. Some sites have learned to block acces from users with Adblock plus but with uBlock Origin I can still access those sites just fine without ads.

    Thanks guys. I am not looking to block every site. I am not against ads. I am against ads which are annoying. HH has no annoying ads so I have it disabled for this site. Youtube I have enabled because they screwed me (and who knows how many more) over. Protothema also because fuck video ads between lines of text that appear out of nowhere. etc.
