If you are getting a bit fed up with the amount of ads that pop up on your screen when you are internet browsing then this clever little piece of software could you just what you need to use to make using the web a little bit less annoying. If you are like a lot of people and often inadvertently click on the strategically placed pop up ads then it will also save you a bit of time and a fair bit of confusion.
The Adblock Plus program basically just sits on your internet browser and uses a pre set list of known internet advertising firms to stop their promotions from popping up on your PC when you enter a site which contains them.
You can very simply add or remove ads from your list of blocked companies using the Adblock Plus "stop" button on your tool bar. This means that you can find the best level to allow you to still see videos which have built in ads but still carry on blocking the annoying pop ups on other sites. The latest version of the program also has a feature which lets you notify the developers if you come across an ad which they haven't got on the default list yet.
There has been a bit of controversy about this kind of ad blocking software, as many site owners live off the ad money they receive, and this kind of program cuts off their revenue supply. Your position on the subject is obviously a personal matter but you might like to have a little look online at the various arguments used by both sides before deciding.
This program works on the Mozilla Firefox browser as well as on a few other ones such as Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. It isn't you only option for an ad-blocking piece of software but it is free, very simple to use, effective and doesn't take up a lot of system resources when it is working.
