Is there any RSS reader with a built-in adblock or a plugin to an RSS reader?

I would also be preferable if it had Google Reader integration.

I've added this rule to the end of /Applications/Reeder.app/Contents/Resources/article.css:

iframe[src*="feedads"],
iframe[src*="doubleclick"],
iframe[src*="plusone.google"],
a[href*=".ads."],
a[href*="feedads"],
a[href*="feedburner"],
a[href*="doubleclick"],
a[href*="//ads."],
a[href*="api.tweetmeme"],
a[href*="delicious.com/post?"],
a[href*="digg.com/submit?"],
a[href*="google.com/bookmarks/mark?"],
a[href*="posterous.com/share?"],
a[href*="tumblr.com/share?"],
a[href*="linkedin.com/shareArticle?"],
a[href*="facebook.com/share.php?"],
a[href*="http://twitter.com/home?"],
a[href*="addtoany.com/share_save"],
a[href*="twitter.com/share?"],
a[href*="pheedcontent.com/"],
a[href*="feeds.wordpress.com/"],
img[src*=".ads."],
img[src*="//ads."],
img[src*="doubleclick"],
img[src*="feedads"],
img[src*="feedburner"],
img[src*="share-buttons"],
img[src*="pheedo.com/"] {
    display: none !important;
}

Most of the selectors were taken from a CSS file posted by the original developer of NetNewsWire.

You could also block domains that serve ads in /etc/hosts.

  • Does this works when viewing the full article or just the preview? – Tyilo Jun 21 '12 at 15:32
  • It doesn't affect the combined view that shows articles inline or the built in browser. (But at least I've never needed to use either of them.) – Lri Jun 21 '12 at 15:46
  • I need it to work with the built in browser – Tyilo Jun 21 '12 at 17:15
  • Here's the path to the mentioned css file: /Applications/Reeder.app/Contents/Resources/article.css. Just add to the end. – y3sh Oct 5 '12 at 21:43
  • For a more thorough list of elements to hide, see the "General element hiding rules" section in EasyList's ad block rules: easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easylist.txt – y3sh Aug 22 '14 at 14:20
