Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

The videos are blocked by adblock effectively.

However teh developer of adblock will add an whitelist of ads ... because he had to make a living.

I've donated to him, but I don't think it is sustainable for him.


Adblock Edge.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-edge/

Adblock Edge is a fork of the Adblock Plus version 2.1.2 extension for blocking advertisements on the web. This fork will provide the same features as Adblock Plus 2.X and higher but without "acceptable ads" feature.
