Adblock Plus
Adblock Plus is a free browser plug-in for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. In addition to the obvious function of blocking advertisements, Adblock Plus also provides the following benefits:

  1. Speeds up web browsing by decreasing page load times.  No more waiting for advertising DNS lookups and image/banner downloads.
  2. Can block tracking including cross domain advertising networks.  For example, ever go searching for a product on Google then all of a sudden you see advertisements on other sites for the product you searched for?
  3. Blocks known malware domains.  Fake advertisements have always been a vector for injecting malware.
  4. Works on Facebook and YouTube.  No more annoying ads at the beginning of YouTube videos!
  5. You can allow unobtrusive ads to support websites.

Additionally, you can add your own filters.  Recently, I’ve noticed taboola.com showing a bunch of cross domain advertisements.  To block these incredibly annoying and obtrusive ads, just add a custom filter.

Adblock Plus is a great tool.  Install it on all of your computers and enjoy the internet without annoying ads!
