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.

"couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock"

not that you have to work with it. it's less than a few clicks to setup any adblock extensions.

"Can someone please create NavigationalCrapBlock?"

It's called the Reader in Safari. Or you can do anything with Greasemonkey. There was also an addon for Firefox to hide different boxes (by tag, id/class) on a website. But is there anybody who uses it? It's so unuseful to block site navigation.
