    Rid the web of ads with Firefox and AdBlock (very easy)

    I am amazed at how far this little extension has gone. I tried it when it came out a few years ago and it was good but a lot of work to blacklist all the ads. Also it had memory leaks and that's why I let it go back then.

    Yesterday I've had it with ads and I decided to try AdBlock again. Wow! Now it comes with downloadable, extensive and easily updatable blacklists. It took me 30 seconds to install the extension and no more work was required. Now I browse the web without a single ad showing up wherever I go! Amazing!

    Here it is:

    Btw, that 'converter' site's server is offline for already more than a week/
    I'm so glad I've spent most of last month converting all that YouTube audio.
    (Over 500 tracks.)

    As my mother used to say: "The I Wish I Had shop is always closed."
