Adblock from Firefox

Categories: , ,

Wow, this is almost surreal. I've installed the AdBlock extension in Firefox on my machine at work, and I'm now looking at ad-heavy sites like Yahoo Mail, New York Times, and The Onion, and they're full of white space. This extension, with a little training, blocks out ads from pages based on their file names (so if you add doubleclick.com to your list of blocking criteria, no ads from there show up on your screen). It's awesome. It's almost eerie, though. I've become so accustomed to my Yahoo Mail blinking and flashing at me, it's strange for it to be so still, so calm.

I think I could get used to this.
