Ad blocker for the Research folder

Some kind of ad blocker, to stop ads and other annoyances, being downloaded on webpages as well as the main content would be a useful addition.

You’ve posted several requests related to Scrivener’s internal browser, so I’ll just address them all at once.

Scrivener’s internal browser is very basic, and is based on the web tools provided with the various platforms. It is not, and is not intended to be, a replacement for Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, or any other full-featured browser. As such, its ability to deal with ads, scripts, trackers, and other fun things that might be associated with web pages is very limited. The best solution is to not import those things into your project in the first place.

If all you need is the content of the page, consider printing to PDF, or copying and pasting to a text file instead. For reference purposes, you can add the original URL as a bookmark.
