Prevent new tab loading of inconsistent FQDN
Is there a way to avoid new tab opening of unresolved or 127.0.0.1 resolved sites ?
Some of intrusive or ransom-ware sites are not blocked by AdBlock so, in order to block these web pages from loading, i often put the fqdn of the unwanted sites in my /etc/hosts and point them to 127.0.0.1 (localhost). It works fine but i still have a blank/error opened tab in Safari. I'm looking for a place to create the following rule :
if dns resolution is localhost or 127.0.0.1, kill the popup new tab instantly.
I know that AdBlock is able to prevent tab for opening, i just need to rule it with the dns case above.
It will be also useful if some of us want to kill popup newtabs of non-classified or simply personal sites list.
Any ideas ?

That's an interesting idea. I'll pass it to our developers and see whether they have any suggestions.
