    Other people will benefit from your post, Hence I've repped you..!!

    ive been using this a few months ago and have found it much more impressive than i could have expected

    best invention with internet use along with Tabs

    supermod

    also try the ad/spam remover ]customizegoogle (older versions of FFox) or ]OptimizeGoogle (compatible with newest FF v3.6). Between that & adblock plus everything remains mercifully ad free.

    I also use ]betterprivacy to clear out extra bits

    Adblock always used to be the baby brother of the better ad blockers that only because popular because of firefox but I guess these days it's probably fully featured with text ad removal and cleaning up gaps?

    Say goodbye to your cashback too?

    Now also available with ]google chrome

    Yes, over the time I have been using "Adblock Plus" (and "Adblock Filterset.G Updater"), I have found a few Forums that moan at you for not allowing the owners to generate revenue.

    Just this weekend i found that the images on a car classifieds forum were "blocked" & I had to revert back to the MS-Internet Explorer rendering engine (using the "IE Tab" Firefox Add-on).

    BFN,

    isnt this useful only for those with slow broadband? My pages all load instantly on 10mb so dont really see why I would need this in firefox which is bloated enough already.

    It's not as good as it used to be. More stuff seems to get through these days.

    I find webpages much more readable without flashing or brightly coloured adverts on them.

    I guess it must just be me then as I cant recall noticing this advert problem. Maybe its cos I just use BBC, HUKD, Bank sites and a few others.
