Sunday afternoon, Firefox on Mac, just checking for news on, no AdBlock installed (yet!), and I was immediately greeted with a nice warning... Well, you know what I'm talking about. I was under the impression that the problem was solved?

But anyway, what should I do? I like to occasionally read OSNews. OSNews needs the money the ads bring. If everybody blocks the ads, then OSNews will have a problem.

But 20$ for a membership, for me that's just a bit steep for something I don't really need. And I don't want another membership I have to remember and think about.

Can't I make a small donation to OSNews? No strings attached, just to show I like this site?

One free solution to show support, without need for donations, is mentioned in the article too:

"And if you're online shopping, using our price comparison search or our link brings us in a little each month too. Bookmark them, and we'll love you!"
