I opened the technet.microsoft home page yesterday for the first time and as soon as the site loaded a video starting running (automatically). It was an advertisement. It ate several MBs before I could close the URL. I did not click on a 'how-to' or 'get instructions here' page where one would expect to get a video. This was definitely an advertisement. I have pop-ups disabled in my browser. It works for them but obviously not for video ads. If this is the new way advertisers are going to present themselves on websites, then I would like to have something that will stop the videos from running automatically when the URL opens. Some websites are bandwidth heavy and that is OK if the content is useful, but video ads make them heavy at the users expense. Does anyone know of a something that I as a user can implement to stop this form of web advertising? I am prepared to change my default browser if there is a solution to be found in an option, extension or add-on. I also have SBIE if it can be utilized to do this (tho I would need help in configuring it).
