Adblock for Opera (Blocking ads in Opera on Windows/Linux)

Opera is a very decent browser and it feels much lighter to use inside Linux. For some reason Firefox seems to be way slow and processor hungry inside Linux. I was reluctant to use Opera because it didn’t had adblock features but not anymore. Implementing the adblock feature inside Opera is trivial.

Just download this file. Save the urlfilter.ini file as it is inside  the folder

 C:/Users/Your_User_ID/Application Data/Opera_folder/profile.Linux

on Windows Vista & 7, for Windows XP users the target folder would be

C:/Document and Settings/Your_User_ID/Application Data/Opera_folder/profile.Linux 

Linux users would have to save it inside .opera folder in your home directory.

Restart Opera and you have adblock enabled. Get the updated urlfilter.ini file from time to time from the website liked above.
