4. The Web > 42. Surf the Internet Ad-Free

Surf the Internet Ad-Free

Cruising the Internet these days feels like a trip down the Las Vegas strip. Here’s how you can turn off the ads and surf in peace.

There once was a day when advertising on the Web was limited to relatively small, discreet banners ads at the top of pages.

Those days are gone. Now ads are everywhere—big ones embedded in the middle of the page, large ones running down the right column, and monster ones that seem to take up entire pages. Ads can be more than just annoying; web sites can also use them to track your surfing activities.

But you don’t have to put up with it. You can surf the Internet ad-free. There are several ways to do it: either use ad-blocking software, or do some hacking of your system for free. Either way, you’ll whack the ads.
