    I've been using this one, and I find it really satisfactory. :)

    I wish there was one for the iPhone. EDGE speed is OK, but most of the pages I visit would be a lot quicker sans ads.

    I wonder if there's a way to make Safari on the iPhone use a UserContent.css?

    You can't modify the iPhone software. But you can do what I did. Set up a caching web proxy server some place that has good bandwidth My proxy server replaces ads with a one pixel square transparent GIF file. Not only do those ads not have to be transmitted over the air but many times the ads are on slow servers. Do a google on "banderfilter" and "squid"

    I think you may not be using the wildcards correctly, then....

    What usually works best is to wildcard everything after the domain name with a "*", for advertiser domains, that is.

    Does any adblocking work for Safari 3 beta? For Windows version Safari?

    I tried that but its not working :S

    For example, this is one:

    ttp://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-8662354728915461&dt=1183394276362&format=468x60_as&output=html&correlator=1183394276359&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.neowin.net%2F&color_bg=F0F0F0&color_text=000000&color_link=0000FF&color_url=008000&color_border=000000&ad_type=text_image&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.neowin.net%2Fforum%2F&cc=13&flash=9&u_h=1200&u_w=1920&u_ah=1103&u_aw=1920&u_cd=32&u_tz=60&u_his=10&u_java=true&u_nplug=11&u_nmime=147

    Where would i put the '*' on that?

    what I would do is make the blocking filter this one:

    http://*.googlesyndication.com/pagead/*

    If you use that filter, it should block all Google syndication ads.
