    On firefox there is a plugin called adsense that blocks out all the banner ads on any website. This dramatically increases the speed of many websites I go on. I am wondering if someone can develop a adblocker for Safari, or, maybe even a whole new browser and distribute it on cydia.

    Not anymore - there was one for 1.1.4, but that's no longer being developed. The only fix is to add the servers for those ad sites to your hosts file.
