🏴‍☠️Ahoy, skippers!
Last months I'm desperately trying to find a way to escape from military Russia due to I don't want to have anything common with the atrocities Russia make in Ukraine and I fear persecution for my credo. That's why new versions of my flows stopped releasing. So I created this new version of 🏴‍☠️Ads Skipper with a new feature to update ads rules from my GitHub bay. The most keen of you, sea-folks, can collaborate to the list of these rules. How to do this, you can read here: https://github.com/almaceleste/automate-ads-skipper/wiki. I think I'll choose an honest boatswain from you, sailors, to help me keep this list up to date. Those of you who know how to bend a sail to a spar on GitHub write me an issue.
Together we'll defeat the spiteful advertisers.
🏴‍☠️All hands ahoy!

👹 Ad providers are inventing more and more ways to get your attention, spend your time and make money from you. These methods could be very annoying and even... spoofing. For example, some providers create ads with a looping video that plays infinitely until you click on the close cross. Either use fake close buttons, or make the real button very small and hard to click.

🏴‍☠️ Ads Skipper keeps a vigilant eye on ads activities and closes them as soon as the close button appears. So you can relax and go about your business while the ad is playing, and when you return the ad view will be closed.

🔇 Works well when coupled with Muted Activities flow:

⛔ Ads Skipper now recognizes these ad providers:
▫️AdColony Ads
▫️MyTarget Ads
▫️Supersonic (IronSource) Ads
▫️Unity Ads
▫️Vungle Ads

▫️Add recognition for Google Ads and Facebook Ads
▫️A̶d̶d̶ ̶u̶p̶d̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶m̶e̶c̶h̶a̶n̶i̶s̶m̶
v3:▫️add update mechanism
v2:▫️change rule key to a hash of the rule content to fix an issue where you can't add a rule with the same xpath but a different timeout
