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.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Chrome's version of AdBlock only hides ads; it doesn't actually block them. Well, at least that's how the add-on worked in said browser when I last tried both (that's around 8 or so months ago).

The one for Firefox, on the other hand, has always blocked and hidden ads. Have things changed recently?
