An Internet Free of Ads

I’ve been using a browser extension called AdBlock for about a year now. It’s kind of like an app for your Web browser that blocks online pop-up advertisements. It’s similar to other pop-up blockers, but way better than any that I’ve tried. I’m writing a post about it because I think the couple who created and maintain AdBlock deserve a lot of credit for how well it works. And on top of that, it’s free! All the couple asks is for donations.

Recently, they have been trying to spread the word about AdBlock because they feel that everyone deserves to use the Web without being bombarded with ads every second. I totally agree!

One of the very few sites that I still sometimes get ads from is Hulu, which has been trying to find a way around AdBlock for a while now. Unfortunately, they’ve finally succeeded.  I’d imagine that a lot of corporations are trying to find ways around it, too, since ads equal potential profits. I think the couple who maintains AdBlock are updating it regularly as a way to “counter-attack” corporations like Hulu.

I am not advertising at all for them, nor do I work with them. I just feel that they deserve some credit and donations for their free product. Right now, they are collecting donations to create a special ad that will spread the word about AdBlock. Those who already have AdBlock won’t have to view it.

From AdBlock:

“Everyone deserves a better Web.

AdBlock has already given over 80 million people an ad-free Internet at no cost.

We want to empower all people around the world to choose an online world without advertising. We can reshape the whole Internet — it’s just a matter of spreading the word.”

  2. Hey Tanya, if you and your readers are interested in a search engine that doesn’t track or enclose you within a filter bubble. check out duckduckgo. If you don’t do so already, install an extension for your browser and use it as your primary search engine. The developers value an ecosystem built on the privacy of their users which is more than I can say about the big three, Google, Bing and Yahoo. Keep up the good work.

  3. Joining the ILLUMINATI SUPREME CIRCLE
    (Illuminati Secret Society) comes with great
    responsibility. And while anyone can join, some
    have a much better chance of joining the
    Illuminati Supreme Circle (Illuminati Secret
    Society) than others.
    Before you take that decision to join the
    Illuminati Supreme Circle, you must be with
    some thing (one atmost thing your heart
    desires) which you want us to uplift. The occult
    only uplifts whats inside you or the atmost thing
    your heart desires for your life.
    As a person who wishes to join the ILLUMINATI
    and become a member in one, you will have to
    fulfill all obligations that come with applying to
    join the family, the oaths to the Illuminati under
    every circumstance and recognize that they are
    merely one part of a much larger Life Design.
    Once a member, the obligations, requirements
    (sacrifices) are unimposing and often spaced
    between months or years. The ILLUMINATI
    requests are simple and therefore may be hard
    to fulfill, but disloyalty is not tolerated. You
    must understand this before applying. To know more about us email us on sebastirnbascoules@gmail.com or WhatsApp or call on +2349073634591 or +2349063126292
