The AdBlocker Epiphany extension works similarly, but far more easily
(IMHO). When installed, it defaults to a blacklist based on Graham
Pierce's FilterSet.G listing. This means that after installation, with
absolutely *no configuration whatsoever* ads on the web are a thing of

Not sure about Galeon, actually. My understanding has been that the
Galeon folks are recently working to merge their efforts back into
Epiphany proper. Are they still wanting to keep it separate? Who
