    Ad Blocking in Safari.

    Embedded ads are a PITA. I always bump them because they are populating the sides of the browser. I am trying to make an effort to use Safari because I am able to go back and forth with multitasking gestures and not lose my place but with Atomic Browser, the multi tasking gesture doesn't work properly. You lose your place, but A. B. allows for
    ad blocking which is great.
    So; does anyone know if there is a way to enable the blocking of ads in Safari?

    Cheers, Dan

    If you are jailbroken, there is an adblocker app in cydia, or you can edit your hosts file.

    No longer JB. I upgraded to 5.0
    What is this host editing of which you speak?

    Go to mvps.org, that will explain editing the host file....but you do have to be jailbroken as far as I know, unless someone knows different.

    Wasn't sure if you could change it using something like diskaid or iPhone explorer without being jailbroken.
