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.

I really hate ads that popup wherever and whenever they like, ads that blink like police lights, ads that block the whole page.

If these ads were removed from the web I would gladly turn adblock off. Until that day comes, adblock will accompany me every moment of my browsing time.
