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.

Wrong. AdBlock from Chrome doesn't download them any more.

Do you know of any extension that does download them? Because I have plenty of bandwidth, and I wouldn't feel so bad about blocking ads on OSNews if I knew that the advertisers had no way of knowing (since I never click on ads anyway).
