So I've had this on for quite a while and it works like a charm, but I've always wondered...

Is the benefit purely cosmetic (as in it loads everything, you just don't see what is blocked), or is there a security benefit as well (does not load blocked content at all)?

Moved Talk about it...

As it says in the FAQ, if you have v0.4 or later, it does block them and not download them.
