Ad Limiter 2.4.1 is now available. This new version is much more effective at dealing with Google’s wall of ads on certain search results. Search for “credit card” with Google, and you’ll see nothing but Google ads, some from rather sketchy businesses. Install Ad Limiter, and you’ll only see one ad, followed by real search results.
Especially effective for Firefox on mobile, where your whole phone screen is often ads when you search.

Ad Limiter 2.2 is now available. Yahoo search results will again be rated, now that Ad Limiter understands a change in Yahoo links. Google search results will now be rated for countries where Google redirects “google.com” to country-specific sites. Blekko support has been removed, due to the demise of the Blekko search engine.

We’ve been upgrading the SiteTruth system. Recent changes include:
- All our add-ons for Firefox are now signed by the Mozilla Foundation. This will soon get rid of the phony add-ons using our add-on ID.
- The new US business database has been loaded and indexed. Business recognition has improved.
- Address parsing has improved. We now recognize about 95% of US mail addresses.

SiteTruth is loading a new database of 20 million US businesses. During the database upload, rating of new sites is very slow. Normal operation should resume by the morning of April 5. Rating quality will improve later in the month.
