Please bring Ad block and data compression feature to the Jolla Browser. I'm using Opera Browser Beta, since it's having both these features. Please bring it to Jolla browser so that i can reduce the number of android apps installed on my beautiful Jolla. :)

Opera does use a proxy server for the compressing (and rearranging) of websites. While it does work quite okee, it's kind of the ultimate horror in terms of privacy. Plus it would need infrastructure at Jolla's end.

Well we can turn it on or off so people who want it wont bother about privacy. And you can give a warning that when you turn on data compression, privacy is compromised. If its possible please try to get this feature, as this is the only reason I'm using opera browser beta instead of sailfish browser.

There is already a thread on how to do it manually. https://together.jolla.com/question/28922/how-to-adblock-for-sailfish-browser/ It should be incorporated as a easy "click and install"

It doesn't work on newer OS's.
