Internet & Networking The last few years have seen the introduction of the concept of "extensions" in most popular web browsers. While Mozilla natively supports extensions, Opera and Safari come feature-packed and can be easily hacked via config files, and a market has cropped up around the IE engine which supports adding new functionality to your browser. In the interest of sharing a good thing, which are your favorite browser extensions?

OSNews serves content with NetShelter...

We do not serve content from NetShelter.

I'm glad to hear that. I don't mean to diss your site - when I was using AdBlock to protect my browser, I tried blocking NetShelter and it made OSNews not work properly. That was probably a temporary glitch though.

I suppose it doesn't matter now, as NoScript disables AdBlock anyway, and makes it mostly unnecessary.

That combination works fine for me. Are you thinking of Flashblock? That won't work with NoScript.

Thats a blatant lie. When you visit an OSnews page, there is a netshelter banner. I can take a screenshot of the page with the netshelter line.

Um... no, it's not. That would be an AD, not CONTENT. Perhaps consult a dictionary before you come here accusing people of lies.

I repeat, OSNews does NOT serve CONTENT from Netshelter.
