Journal Journal: HOWTO: Block the Intel slashverts

The new Intel vendors section may be useful for the running of slashdot, but yet again the advertisers have implemented their ads in an annoying way: The Intel Opinion centre link in the top right triggers a new box to appear, much like a pop up, containing some advert when you simply move your mouse pointer over it. So I've looked into the CSS support modern browsers have for user customisation, and figured out how to hide the Intel junk.

In your \Firefox\Profiles\[random].default\chrome make a file called userContent.css and fill it with the following:

@-moz-document domain(slashdot.org) {
#sponsorlinks { display: none; }
#links-opcenter { display: none; }
#links-opcenter-content { display: none; }
#links-opcenter-title { display: none; }
#block6 { display: none; }

This will nicely hide the DIVs associated with the Intel opinion centre stuff.
