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.

What I would like disabled are those stupid tooltip ads because they often pop up not when I intentionally hover over them but when my mouse is simply passing over on the way to something else.

Oh yes, these are the true plague in my web browsing experience.
