    This no longer works. Google changed something (probably the ID) so this isn’t effective, anymore.

    It has stopped working.

    I’ve just found a solution that you can adapt to your needs as soon as they change the ID of the annoying div. Here’s how: use Google Chrome to open your gmail inbox, right click the annoying div and choose “Inspect element”. When the console opens, notice the ID of the annoying box, as of Nov 14th 2011 it’s “w-asK w-atd”. Just replace the div ID like so:

    instead of[class=”GcwpPb-MEmzyf GcwpPb-bEO5kc”]

    use[class=”w-asK w-atd”]

    and paste the filter code inside AdBlock plus! That’s all guys :)

      You are right Andrian. The Gmail team has changed the div class. It is “w-asK w-atd” for me too. Will update the article soon.

    I had to change the class to something else. In chrome you can right click on the box and select inspect element, then use that class id instead.

  7. The filter,[class=”w-asK w-atd”]

    was the trick for getting rid of ads below emails. I guess the recent upgrades to gmail caused that ad to slip through AdBlock. I wasn’t able to manually create a filter without blocking the frame containing the email itself. Your filter was the solution. Thank you so much!

    Google has finally FORCED the new look upon us by removing the “Temporarily Revert To Old Look” link. It’s done. Finalised.
