Adblock Plus

Adblock Plus

Following on from this article in The Guardian. I have downloaded and installed Adblock Plus. It blocks adverts appearing on the web pages you view with Firefox.

"Ever been annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page? Install Adblock Plus now and get rid of them. Right-click on a banner and choose “Adblock” from the context menu — the banner won’t be downloaded again. Maybe even replace parts of the banner address with star symbols to block similar banners as well. Or choose a filter subscription, then even this simple task will usually be unnecessary: the filter subscription will block most advertisements fully automatically":.
