    Does anyone know if CocoaMug will release a version for FW 2.0.1 ?? Or is there a suitable alternative. I really do hate ads, esp on EDGE...

    ya I paid for it emailed them no word yet on 2.0 up I sure hope they release it its not fair for those who paid for the app to not have it

    Adblock 2.0 seems to be out on Cydia. What exactly is the paid subscription for, does it block even more ads than using it without subscription?

  14. #12
    I think, as long as you haven't paid, you'll get a popup, sayin "Buy me" or whatever, whenever an ad was blocked (or maybe on every third; not sure)

    Doesnt seem to block anything for me...

    I have blocked about 10 ads now with no popups to buy it...

  17. #15
    I emailed the Dev and he replied that the free version has a Buy Me popup every 30 or so ads blocked.

    I tried it out and it did block some ads but there wasn't any noticable difference in loading times.
    I must say though, the best speed I do get with safari is when I turn off Javascript.
