I know I’m a bit late on this bandwagon. I don’t normally have too many Firefox extensions installed, but I’ve been playing around with a few lately. I’ve discovered AdBlock Plus. If you’re a Firefox user and you don’t use this extension, you should. If you’re not a Firefox user, you should be (and you should install this extension)!
What does it do, you ask? Oh, it just hides all those annoying ads that are found on so many web pages today. Notice a difference between these two images?
It comes with a “filter” that removes pretty much every ad you’ll come across automatically. It also adds little “block” buttons to things that might be ads. Clicking “Block” will add these items to your filter and you won’t see them anymore. Pretty sweet, eh? Well maybe not if you like seeing that you’ve won a free iPod on every web page.
