Great to hear you're working on this!

My current opinion is:

A. I wouldn't use that white/black listing thing from ephy as I'd rather trust the a preconfigured list of filters like the one Midori uses [4].

B. Not sure about not giving the user any chance to configure the ad
blocker. I think allowing the user at least to add new filters is good.

C. I would drop that and make sure that the list gets refreshed whenever
the extension is loaded. Don't see the point of the manual "update".

Agreed on all counts!

Of course, when you add a new filter, it should be loaded directly and not until after a restart.
