I use this littel addon for my Chrome browser, and it is amazing.

Usually when I watch an online stream, especially when not full screen, I get all the time these annoying pop-ups, and you get those adverts on the side with slags trying to entice you to join dubious chat sites or whateever.

SO I turn off the auto plugin play in Chrome, and with this little thing, nothing :)

I was atching a football game for maybe 10 minutes, see how much was already blocked :D (top right corner)

Ive been using it for years - Its a necessity on a slow connection as the damned ads can slow page loading a horrendous amount.

Its nice to be able to play you tube videos without bloody adverts before them!

I didnt mind when it was just text adverts, but then the advertisers discovered pop up pages, pop under pages, adverts with bells & whistles in them to attract your attention, browser traps when you mistakenly click on them and gawd only knows what else. So sod them.

ABP is a needs-must for slow ADSL connections: Been using it for years.


Do install the Prebake Filter in addition to EasyList and Fanboy's.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I don't, and I don't have ABP :(

I've been using Adblock in its various forms for years with Firefox; now I use Ghostery as well :) Whenever I'm using a browser without these installed I find the experience far too visually noisy :) (ie a PITA)

Women ARE my thing but these skunk pussies are not. And anyway, when I want to watch a football game I am fully focussed on that

Well, what you see is by and large a function of the sites you visit..... :)

Yes I suppose watching life streams will expose you to that, but thanks to the clever people of ABP I can enjoy them now much better

I can't say I'm surprised the big players don't like it up 'em: But at least later on in that piece there is mention of the flawed nature of the Advertising model.

And I bet those arrogant so-and-so's don't have a clue about ADSL poverty whereby many of us have to disable as much content as we realistically can, simply in order to perform basic browsing functions.

(That said, only a few weeks before I switch to the 20Mbps non-copper solution I may have mentioned elsewhere!)
