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.

FYI, there's also a Readability bookmarklet http://lab.arc90.com/experiments/readability/ as well as a Firefox add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/46442/

You may consider it interesting that Safari Reader is actually using the code from the "Readability" project.
