" An internet without ads?

This $147 'AdTrap' device claims to give you just that.

" The device completely block ads from websites, videos, music streams and mobile apps that use a Wi-Fi connection.

"Adblock Edge" (better than Adblock+) does the same for $147,- less Very Happy

It's a firefox add-on that works really well.

Generally, you can get ad free versions of apps for a very low fee. This works as a great incentive for developers to continuing providing all the upgrades and support.

Flashing ads/videos/etc when loading web pages is a whole different issue. I'd pay for whatever works.

It annoys me greatly that I have to pay for my bandwidth, and then have to submit to some other person or organisation using that bandwidth to hawk their products or push some stupid moralising message or whatever. eg:
"if you drink then drive you're a bloody idiot..."
"Check both ways when crossing the road..."

Aaaarghh!

I paid for the bandwidth, and I want it reserved for the data I specifically requested....

I think it should be illegal for any website to "push" advertising material down to your PC until they have requested your permission to do so:

"Do you want to authorise The Boring Product Corporation to use your precious bandwidth to load a stupid, slow Flash Ad onto your screen while you wait ages?"

No!

Also a simple hosts file block list works well, I copied mine from earlier puppylinux and use it on Fatdog 64 and ARM-Alpha versions. Good for environments without ad-blocker versions.

I agree it should be criminal to push data heavy flash ads or any ads less than a simple low sized gif.
