More user-friendly way to only run AdBlock on specific sites.

Many websites is built with the money that comes from displaying ads to their users, and therefor I don't want to block the ads. However, some sites is just so bloody annoying that you can't stand them without AdBlock.

What I want: Easy way to add a site to the list of sites I run AdBlock on.

I would like: The perfect solution for me would be a mode that by default doesn't run AdBlock on any site, but clicking the AdBlock icon in the toolbar will add that site to the list of sites with ads blocked. This way I can feel good about having the ads displayed, but still be able to browse some of the sites where the ads otherwise would ruin the experience.

Thanks for a great product!

    You can already do this: go to AdBlock button > Options > Customise and use
    the "Show ads *everywhere *except these domains..." option.

    Yes I do know that the possibility is there, but what I requested was an
    easy way to use it. Currently, once you have entered something in that box
    and pressed enter it transfers over to the manually filter textbox and to
    add more sites you need to edit there.

    I wanted an easy way to quickly add the current website to that list.

    OK. I've passed this on to our developers and they may look into it!
