    Firefox and adblock, no need for external adblocking (or antispyware)

    Firefox with Adblock Plus 0.6.1 and Filterset .G Updater. Works perfect.

    Re: do you us adblocking software?

    Yes, I use Ad Hunter in Maxthon and AdBlock/FlashBlock in FF. Since Maxthon is my nr 1 browser (use it about 99% of the time) I hope Ad Hunter will become a bit more powerful, but it already is doing quite a good job. ;)

    No..
    Aggresive ad-blocking will kill the freeware.

    I tried AdBlock but gave that up for Ad Muncher Beta that is working great for me.

    I use Firefox.

    Hi

    Webwasher when I'm not running on... Oupost firewall. Having said that, my toolbox is now fully complete since Opera now has GUI-adblocking capabilities.

    BTW, now giving admuncher a try, out of curiosity. Seems nice...
    Cheers

    Re: do you us adblocking software?

    I don't use ad-blocking software, and I don't click on the ads, never have and never will. I don't tear out the ads in newspapers or magazines either. ;)

    I don't click on them either, but I do find them a nuisance to see.

    I find the pages look much nicer without all those banners, ads, etc.

    Re: do you us adblocking software?

    Does it have any new feature or increased filtering power? Why do you think it better?

    Not sure I understand the use. Does it add some command access in browsers? AM already works with all browser..!?
    Thanks
