View Full Version : What ad blocker do you use?
I use to use Firefox adblocker but since switching over to IE7 and the same program extension not existing for IE I am using Ad Muncher (http://www.admuncher.com).
What are the other penny/bandwidth pinching forum members on this site using for ad blocking?

Adblock Plus for Firefox. Don't see why anyone would wanna switch to IE with all the great add-ons for FF?

Pith-helmet for Safari as well as a hosts file
I develop mainly for IE so that is why I use it. One disadvantage is the extensions aren't all free but you can always crack them at least.

Firefox2 + adblock plus + hide element(for those few that adblock needs help identifying, good in a point and click method)

FF2 with AdBlock Plus
squid with bannerfilter, iptables firewall, noscript and adblock plus. shocking to browse on other systems since half of websites consists out of ads suddenly.
Adblock Filterset.G Updater
Asblock Plus - blocks annoying ads and allows you to customize.
Batch Download - downloads following a set of rules.
Copy Plain Text - useful when you don't want to copy more than text
Download Sort - downloads and renames files
DownThemAll - selects files to download later, renames
Forcastfox - shows weather information for your current location
ImgLikeOpera - allows a person to only show cached images, saves bandwidth
PDF Download - makes google turn a PDF in to a html for you
Ressurect Pages - opens dead pages with google cache
ScrapBook - saves sites locally on your disk, in an easily browseable way
SessionSaver <-- need to edit the version number. opens tabs as you left it before before quiting.
StumbleUpon - community of people with same interest index sites they liked, you click and get taken to a specific topic
Unplug - shows direct links to download media from youtube and such where media links are hidden away
CoolIris seems like it downloads webpages before clicking, eats bandwidth?
Fasterfox and StumbleUpon also does it, but has settings to moderate it.
Fasterfox makes rendering and download performance go up
StumbleUpon takes you to a random website in a preset category. from another thread, if other firefox users find it interesting.
