Mozilla & Gecko clones "The Mozilla development community has rolled out the latest beta of its Firefox 3.6 browser. In addition to the usual round of bug fixes, Firefox 3.6 beta version 5, comes with a number of new features and performance enhancements. The browser offers the ability for users to easily reskin the browsers with a new visual theme. The new version can also run scripts asynchronously, which should speed load times of pages that have multiple scripts. The new release also aims to appease cutting-edge developers, with support for various new standards."

You know, if the advertiser pays for adds that aren't displayed, then the advertiser is getting ripped off, and it's entirely possible that the company trying to advertise their product is also just a li'l, sympathetic Mom and Pop, not a huge, unsympathetic MegaCorp. Downloading the add and not displaying it is not a perfect, egalitarian solution: somebody's still getting screwed, it's just someone you don't care about.

But when you talk about ad-blocking in terms of moral imperatives and the life-and-death of websites, I think I can safely say that we're dealing with some pretty inflated rhetoric.
