What I want in a web browser is the ability to block domains. That is, tell the browser “see this domain? Never ever load anything from there.” I find it very odd that none of the browsers I use has that capability. It would seem very useful and easy to implement. Ah well.

Yes, you’d think somebody would start a service that recognizes the domains of malicious advertisers and the browser would subscribe to the service and block ads or hyperlinks to the malicious sites. Sort of like the spam filters for email, but a site filter for the web.

I think McAfee came out with something like that, but I don’t think it worked as well as something integrated with the browser.
