Going around urchin.js through ABP!
« on: August 03, 2007, 11:22:35 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

Not loading some scripts saves you loading time in your Firefox or Flock browser, because some javascript code can drastically slow your pageload. The easy way to go round the google urchin.js code e.g. you can read here: http://www.theblackvault.com/ftopicp-421350.html

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

What about just adding http://www.google-analytics.com/* to AdBlockPlus items?

You can also block it in NoScript which is easier and it is specifically blocking scripts.

I used to block google-analytics on this forum as there were times when I always seemed to be waiting for google-analytics.com, but I took the view that the data for avast might be helpful to them. However on dial-up I may go back to blocking it.

I have just added http://*.google-analytics.com/* to adblockplus to see how that works.
