Suppressing adverts

I was just reading a British Trust for Ornithology review of a new British dragonflies DVD and was nearing screaming point, driven mad by the blasted animated adverts cluttering up the page.  I googled for suppressing adverts, and hit gold.  There's an open source add-on for Firefox which suppresses ads, so I installed it, and it's bliss!  I had to share the good news!

You can download it free from here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

I'm not exactly sure what the stuff about filters is, but I accepted the default EasyList filter which sees to work just fine.

Oh and in a fine irony (this is irony, isn't it?) the ads on my own blog have been suppressed!  Ho ho ho!
