Adblockers to save online ads? Google thinks so (Download Squad)

Jan 1st 2010 5:52PM I don't really mind advertisements unless:

1) It immediately doubles in size just because my mouse happened to graze the flash banner.
2) It makes noise by default.
3) It moves across my screen and blocks other content on the screen.

To be honest, installing an ad blocker in Firefox is straightforward. It doesn't take that long. I've done it in the past, but I don't now. I think I stopped when there was that whole fiasco about a website blocking Firefox users because of ad blocking.... the owners of websites do deserve to make some money to pay for their services, but they need to keep the level of intrusiveness down.
