4.81 Build 31376 Final (Feb 6, 2010)
As always, still the best ad blocker out there. Removes tracking scripts, potentially malicious portions of websites, and video ads from just about every video content provider out there. Top notch support is basically always available through the forum or IRC. Like everyone eles, really looking forward to gzip and regexp support.

I have the opposite problem of cage22 - Mine won't wake up after being put to sleep. I have to disconnect the DVI cable and reconnect it. Just started after installing the 10.1 drivers. On a Sapphire 1GB 4890 card.
4.73.31233 Beta (Sep 11, 2009)
Ad Muncher is still the best ad blocker out there, hands down. I rarely run into ads these days, and when I do, I report them, and they're gone generally within 24 hours. Video Ads on almost every site are completely blocked.
Yes, development can be slow, but that's how it goes when there's only one person writing the code. And frankly, I think this issue is moot when the list maintainer is putting out 2 updates every day and is available almost upon demand whenever you need to report a problem.
Why are people clamoring for filtering support of x64 applications? OK, great, my 64-bit browser is filtered - Too bad Flash, Java, or any other of my plugins still aren't working. IMHO, the only major feature AM is lacking is HTTP 1.1/gzip support - everything after that, to me at least, is ancillary, and certainly does not deserve a 1-star rating for lacking it.
4.72 Build 30400 (Apr 29, 2008)
It's unfortunate that Ad Muncher is getting such a bad rap here at FileForum. It's easily one of the best applications I've ever purchased.
To Metshrine: If you really did purchase your license 4 years ago, why complain so hard? You know there's only a single developer. You do know your license is good for LIFE, right? For EVERY version of Ad Muncher ever released, a license purchased 4 years ago will ALWAYS be valid. These features being promised are coming, but it's not just a drop in the hat to implement them, especially when your code base is all in ASM (Which is also changing). How many 64-bit applications do you really need filtered? I only know of one, IE7 in Vista x64. And I never use it, because Flash doesn't even work in 64-bit applications yet, let alone Ad Muncher!
If sites are broken due to AM, you need to report them (In any number of ways available - built-in chat, the right-click report function, or the forum), not just complain about them in a fileforum review. That's not the proper place for such complaints. And you need to provide specific broken URL's, not just the root domain. I just browsed around every link inside my amazon.com account and I don't see a single broken item.
This product will always receive 5 stars from me. The developer support and customer support are both top notch. Thank you, Murray, for another solid release, and I look forward to continuing to help beta testing during dev cycles.
4.72.30321 Beta (Apr 19, 2008)
Another solid beta from Murray, and it's getting close to a final release.
To those complaining about long dev cycles, well, there's not much that can be done about that when the dev team is a single guy. These changes that everyone wants aren't going to happen overnight. They require massive code rewrites and implementing features from scratch.
The list maintainer is not condescending at all. He can be curt, and is very straight-forward about his answers. He is this way because time is limited. But every single website I've ever reported with broken content has been fixed immediately and has been included in the next list update. If you need the fix immediately, he will give it to you to add to your custom filter list. Every time, without exception, this is how my experiences have been handled. I've also found several bugs during beta testing processes and they were also fixed for the next beta release.
The customer service ALONE is worth the price of a license. Always a 5-star product. Please rate it on the features it has NOW, not the features you WISH it had.

A lot of people keep calling this phone underwhelming, yet it's got almost the same specs as almost any other Android phone coming out right now (save for the smaller screen). The original Pre, yeah, at the time, was an underperformer (I know - I still have an original Sprint Pre). Though, it's so easy to overclock to 1ghz, it performs really well now.
I think the basic idea of the Pre 2 is that it's whatever Palm was working on before HP bought them. Remnants, if you will. This is no less of an evolutionary step as the iPhone 3G was over the original iPhone.
Owning an overclocked Pre makes me less inclined to buy a Pre 2, but I am definitely interested to see what new hardware HP cooks up to run WebOS on, which is what I'm much more excited for (especially now that they're adding API's for camera & mic, bluetooth profiles, etc). If they can make solid hardware to put WebOS on and market it well, I think it could gain some ground. It's by far the best multitasking mobile OS there is.

Nothing on Sprint? Bummer. It's ok, I'm holding out for new WebOS hardware anyway :)
4.72.30321 Beta (May 7, 2010 - 12:52 AM)
Hardware acceleration is awesome.
I can't wait until it's added to Chrome, my browser of choice.
Chrome is fast now without it imagine how fast it will be with it.
Hopefully Google gets the ball rolling soon. :)

I was referring to Virgin Mobile's lack of decent smartphones, but I agree with all you mentioned. That Evo is _hot_.
Sprint is starting to look up. Good handsets, awesome plan pricing compared to equivalent plans on competitors networks. I'm sold.
4.72.30321 Beta (May 6, 2010 - 6:41 PM)
What good is unlimited data if they don't have any decent phones?
Can I get my Sprint Palm Pre working with a Virgin Mobile plan?
