Content Blocker... Block Ads based on <iframe> size? Seriously?



  • See resources/vivaldi/user_files/Content_Blocker.css, there's all like:

    iframe[width="300"][height="250"],
    iframe[width="300"][height="600"],
    iframe[width="320"][height="100"],
    iframe[width="336"][height="280"],
    iframe[width="728"][height="90"],
    iframe[width="728px"][height="90px"] { /* Special case found on theverge.com */
      display: none !important;
    }
    ...
    

    And there's hundreds lines of things like this

    So basiclly, any <iframe> elements with specific size would be treated as Ads and would be removed using Content Blocker.

    If you take a look at those rules in uBlock, there's much more specific ways to detect Ads. Does this even make sense?
