When I first got here I decided that premiums were just the coolest things ever but I learned that you don't need premiums to block ads from dA. Ads can make pages load slower and make your time on dA less than enjoyable so I decided that if I can take advantage of these easy to use things than so can you.

How to block ads with Firefox: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef…
How to block ads with Chrome: adblockplus.org/en/chrome
How to block ads with Explorer: www.ehow.com/how_5842736_block…
How to block ads in Safari: safariadblock.com/

I think this was a good thing to share with the community, let me know your thoughts on this because I like to get plenty of second opinions.

Thank you!!!!!!!! You have made my life less stressful... that is, no more silence-shattering commercials telling me to buy pampers, and dish-washer soap and whatever else...
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Already know this.
But beware, some websites install anti-adblock so you need to disable it.

Actually, adblock developers are acting quite fast and include anti-adblock countermeasures :)

Oh dear lord, THANK YOU!!!!!

lately there's this HUGE ad on top of the page that's been driving me crazy!!! The small ads in the right corner of the page I didn't mind so much, but the ones that take a whole chunk of the entire top of the page are insane!

Yeah, no problem, the way I see it the ads help to pay for dA so if the admins  aren't doing their job or just ignoring some of their responsibility then we don't need to give them that money by viewing these god awful ads.

I've been using Adblock plus for some years now, and I can only recommend it to all firefox users.
However, most people who afford premium membership don't do so in order to evade the ads ..

I imagine they use premium membership primarily for all the neat little features and the extra groups but for me, being rid of the ads was just something worth sharing. I meant to post this some months ago but well time makes jackasses out all of us. I shared this not so much to speak against premiums, I figured a few people in the group might not be aware and would enjoy this info.
