Block those Internet ads for good. Photo: Lifehacker
No, I don't want your golden Cartier watch. In fact, I don't want any Cartier watch, prescription drug that will boost my... err, self esteem or a size 0 waist. And I'm assuming you don't either. Lucky for you, Lifehacker
has released a variety of ways to block those ads... forever.
One of the best ways to block Internet ads is a handy Firefox add-on called Adblock Plus
. If you haven't yet installed Adblock Plus, you're in for an insane treat. A few tips using Adblock Plus?:
1. Right-click on any banner and choose "Adblock" from the context menu so that the banner won't be downloaded again.
2. Replace parts of the banner address with star symbols to block similar banners as well.
3. Select a filter subscription when Adblock Plus starts up the first time. From then on, the filter subscription will block most advertisements automatically.
Easy enough! For a variety of other ways to block Internet annoyances, check out Lifehacker.
