you guys should get flash blockers, which block any flash from playing unless you click to allow it.



You just made my day.

Chrome has built-in click to play in the settings, which works very well

I agree ads are annoying as hell and why i started to use admuncher which is a paid ad blocker but have also resulted to using adblock plus too because i wanted some ads blocking that admuncher and the dev will not block or help to block, it strange i know, his response was it would break the page blocking them but adblock plus blocks them without issue.

I also use Do Not Track Plus for chrome

Everytime you’re on the web, data brokers, ad networks and social networks collect data about you. Everything from what you read, what you click, what you buy is stored in a secret profile about you. Now with DoNotTrackPlus (DNT+), you can stop them.

When you visit a website DNT+ blocks tracking technologies from:
· Seeing and collecting your web activity such as what sites you visit and what you view.
· Putting cookies on your machine that would continue to store information about your Internet browsing.
· Displaying ads with tracking capability, including the annoying ads that seem to follow you everywhere you go.

Oh and a VPN for my tv torrents. Oh and i use YouTube Options for Google Chrome™ 1.8.82 too because i want full screen straight away.

I just got into a habbit of pressing 'Don't Play' on news sites.

That way I save bandwidth by not posting whinges for nothing.

I hate that. Especially when you have a bunch of tabs open and you try to figure out which site is the cause.
