Description

This is related to the android browser. I was wondering if you could add a block list to src/com/android/browser/Tab.java to avoid tracking. Please see the attached patch.

I must admit I am not a professional programmer, so apologies if it looks terrible. I adapted it from MIT license code http://git.io/Z0wgnQ (where the list of domains are loaded from XML array from src/res/xml). Perhaps you can make this better!

This block list can also be obtained from disconnect addon blacklist http://git.io/zUuHHA. It is sure that this list may block some websites from loading. There may be a menu item or tickbox added to temporarily bye pass blocking in advanced settings (if needed).

Many thanks for your great work!
