How to block ads in Google Chrome with AdSweep (Download Squad)

Apr 6th 2009 1:11PM I still use Ad Muncher ( Works across all browsers so I only have one place to deal with exceptions. Of course, it does cost a small amount, but I think it's easily worth it - also I have one reason less to switch to Chrome

4 Free Proxies To Block Ads in Google Chrome (or any browser) (Download Squad)

Sep 10th 2008 3:12AM I can't believe Ad Muncher hasn't been mentioned in the article, it's the most complete ad-blocking program out there, and "just works", that I have tried!

Get it at - it does, however, cost $30, but it's well worth it. I hate working on other computers without ad-blocking (just try visiting without using ad-blocking :X)

Please remember that currently you have to manual at "chrome" to the filtering target (this will likely be corrected in the next version". But it works like a charm

Safari beta for Windows updates to 3.0.4, fixes most of what was wrong (Download Squad)

Nov 16th 2007 6:29AM ...but unfortunately they haven't fixed the "bug" of not being able to use the trackpoint(with pressed down button above the two mouse-buttons) on a IBM laptop to scroll as you can in Firefox/IE, which leaves me sh*t out of luck of using Safari without changing the way I use browsers...dang!

Anything iPhone can do, you can do better - Mobile Minute (Download Squad)

Jul 2nd 2007 12:37PM This "analysis" always comes up when Apple releases a new product. Quotes like "this has all been done before" and "they're too late in the game". It's also the same you always hear from Linux-fanboys. Whenever MacOS or Windows come in a new version they are quick to say "Linux has had XX feature for XX months/years".
But what people don't realize is that what Apple does is INTEGRATE it into a nice package where "it just works". You won't get everything you want, but you get most of it and it works well and is extremely well integrated with lots of gloss so it is both useful, easy to use and nice to look at. This is what makes Apple somewhat unique and why certain products they have made are successful and they can afford to charge a premium. I think we will see the same with the iPhone (and iPhone 2, 3, etc.). Whether they will be as successful with iPhone as they were with the iPod depends on how the other players in the market react. Usability will become a big competition parameter. Nokia/Motorola/SonyEricsson/Samsung will definitely need to work on integrating features such as video/picture sharing, MMS creating and sending much easier and fund to use, so average-Joe will be able to do it easily.

that was my two cents...
