Chapter 3. Internet Annoyances

Chapter 3. Internet Annoyances

Think back to the early 1970s, when the visionary scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) were creating what would become the global "Internet." Did they realize how annoying the Internet would become? Was it a design feature? Probably not. Yet unwieldy lists of bookmarks, irritating banner ads, and searches that yield hundreds of thousands of results make a good case for annoyance by design-not to mention some of the annoying things people say in blogs, discussion forums, and even news sites.

Except for avoiding certain web sites, there's little you can do to avoid annoying content. But starting with the next page, you'll find over 40 tips that will keep your blood pressure under control as you browse the Web, search with Google and Sherlock, and chat up your wired pals. You'll also learn about some browser features that exist outside of Safari-in other web browsers.
