Have a setup option for AdBlock to download ads then hide it

Hey Everyone!

I think if AdBlock would have an option to download the ads and then hide it, it would mean a lot to small/medium YouTubers, because YouTubers usually make around 1.4 USD per 1000 views, because the ads aren't downloaded.

If AdBlock would let the ad to download then hide it it would increase the profit of the YouTuber and the AdBlock user wouldn't really notice anything at all. My idea would be that by default AdBlock downloads ads and when it is installed, you'd see a page that says if you have slow internet connection here you can turn of ad downloading. Many people who has fast internet wouldn't turn it off i think because it can help YouTubers for example, or even bloggers.

I know it's not the easiest feature but it's very helpful.

    That's called view-fraud, and it would also made the Malware Domains subscription useless.
