How to Hide Annoying Ads on Websites

# Filed on Apr 3, 2013 by AnthonyDiSante reply

Some websites display really obnoxious stuff: moving/flashing images, auto-playing videos, etc.  These are usually advertisements, and on many websites they’ve gotten so bad that it’s impossible to concentrate on reading the actual content on the page.

You can cut down on 90% of this stuff by installing two add-ons/extensions in your web browser: one is a Flash blocker (since many ads are created with Flash), and the other is an ad blocker.  Just go into your browser’s settings and look for the Add-Ons or Extensions section, then search for Flash block or ad block.  (Most Flash blockers allow you to still view Flash content that you actually want to view: they simply replace each Flash element with a place-holder, which you can click on if you want to run the Flash behind it.)

But there’s another option, for one-off situations, or deleting things that aren’t necessarily ads, or aren’t Flash.  In browsers like Google Chrome (or Firefox with the FireBug add-on), you can simply right-click on any part of any web page, choose Inspect, and then hit the Delete key on your keyboard.  Problem solved!

I like the latter approach because I know some websites depend on revenue from advertising, so I don’t necessarily want to block all ads.  However, when a website decides to run ads that are obnoxious, then they’ve crossed the line, and I have no qualms about blocking ads on such sites.

Client Quotes

I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time.  I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.
– Adrian F.
FileChucker is working great...  Clients love it.  Vendors love it.  We love it.
– Gerry W.
I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.
– Kevin H.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.
– Sean F.
FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.
– Michael W.
Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
– Tommy A.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.
– Alex S.
You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.
– Nicholas H.
I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.
– Bob C.
The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
– Jason M.
Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!
– Tashina P.
Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.
– Aaron W.
The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
– Bruce C.
