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.

..when nothing but stupid Psystar ads were showing up on the site.

I haven't seen a Psystar ad in months. Right now, I'm really getting annoyed by the ads with rollovers (especially the MeeGo ad).

Yah... Adblock is turned off for osnews, but if that meego ad doesn't go away soon (and those other stupid expand on mouseover ones as well) Adblock will be turned on for osnews.
