Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites. Up until, well, today, I didn't block ads - not because of some ethical objection or whatever, but simply because I couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock. Today, after taking a closer look at some of the websites I frequent, I decided to take the plunge and install AdBlock on all my machines. The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

On some sites there are more annoying popup scripts. I added http://noscript.net/ to firefox. It´s a little work in the beginning but now I´m glad to have it.
Basic plugin is "adblock plus"
