Blocking annoying Flash banner ads in Chimera
note: will also work in mozilla in the user chrome directory
Based on this entry on [tidak ada] I found.... uh.... I don't remember how, it was late, ok? I managed to disable those annoying Flash banner ads in Chimera (I most often see them on [Wired.com]). Since you probably don't have one, create a file called "userContent.css" in your Chimera user chrome directory:

~/Library/Application Support/Chimera/Profiles/default/WHATEVER/chrome

Where "WHATEVER" is a random string usually ending in ".slt".
In that userContent.css file, enter the following:

/* this hides the usual 468x60 Flash banner ads */
embed[type="application/x-shockwave-flash"][width="468"][height="60"] {
display: none !important;
visibility: hidden !important;
}
/* this hides the not so usual but very annoying 728x90 Flash banner ads */
embed[type="application/x-shockwave-flash"][width="728"][height="90"] {
display: none !important;
visibility: hidden !important;
}


Now restart Chimera and it should work. Kewl, huh?
