Advertisement is the main source of revenue for a website. Sometimes different websites are greedy enough to place a large number of flash advertisements those are generally very much annoying to blog lovers. Though knowledge on how to block advertisement specially while using google chrome is not a great issue for website owners. But still being a tech-lover I can’t suppress the fact. It is the right of every blog reader whether he would like to read our blog with advertising representation or not. But after all my earnest request to all the readers is that please don’t block adds. This article mainly pointed on How to get rid of advertisement in any website while browsing with major browsers mainly with Google Chrome and for windows users only.

There is no cause of worry while someone have been using Google Chrome and try to block adds on a specific website. As this browser (talking about Google Chrome) supports an extensive extensions or add-ons so to block add is no doubt very much easier. If you are a Chrome user and try to block advertisement but still finding no way an extension named “AdBlock” (you may use AdBlock Plus beta also) here is for you to block website advertisements generally flash contents. In fact it is very much easier to set up and make it activate.
With AdBlock you do not need to select:
Which filter’s lists you want to subscribe to. It creates its own filter and use it to block purposes.
For using AdBlock you don’t need anything without installing it. That means I want to say just install it from Chrome Web Store.
After installing AdBlock the AdBlock icon will be found on the top most address bar. Mainly on the right side. Just click the button (hand surrounded by red circle) and will find the following options:
- Pause AdBlock
- Block an ad on this page
- Don’t run AdBlock on this page: users can exclude particular pages from being blocked.
- Don’t run on pages of this domain: users can exclude particular site(s) from being blocked.
- Show the resource list
- Report an add on this page
- Options: Users can use and manage filters from the filter list as well as can create manual filter list also.
- This AdBlock extension automatically blocks video ads, banner ads, face-book ads, ads texts etc.
What Chrome Developers told about AdBlock?
According to Google Chrome Developer it can block ads all over the web. AdBlocks as runs on every tab so it has a access to your history as well as your website data those are automatically generated. But it does not look at your private data.
What we are missing still in AdBlock?
There is no easy way to remove false positives. Apart from this will not stop ads fully from being downloaded.
There are more similar extensions available. You may try AdBlock Plus(Beta), Simple Adblock, Screwads, Better Pop-up Blocker also for the same purpose. There are same kind of extensions/add-ons are also available for Firefox or opera.
