Do you ever get fed up of seeing advert after advert on your favourite websites? We have the solution.

Adblock Plus was announced yesterday as the most popular add-on for Firefox after Mozilla served its 3 billionth download last week. AdBlock Plus is used by 13.5 million users on a daily basis and is available for both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Mozilla claims that users "love it, because it gives them control of how they view the web".

It is worth mentioning that advertisements are often a critical source of revenue to keep certain websites afloat, by aiding their running and staff costs. However, it is widely acknowledged that advertisements can be very annoying (especially Flash adverts and full background images. PC PAL believe that education is key to making an informed decision on whether you want to start blocking website advertising.

To start blocking adverts you simply install a FREE add-on, restart your browser and you can be safe in the knowledge that you will no longer be bombarded with advertising.

The add-on incorporates the following features:

  • Whitelisting - for when you want to see adverts on some websites, such as watching ITV Player, 4OD and Demand 5.
  • Support for blocking background images
  • The ability to hide ads on a per site basis instead of globally
