FireFox users: Want to get rid of annoying content on pages you visit?

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Tired of those racy ad pics on sites you like to visit? Most of the time I don’t mind the ads all over pages I frequent, but some ads – like some I see on Xanga – can be offensive or distracting to Christians. I’ve been playing with a FireFox add-on that makes them go away. It is ‘experimental’, so watch for problems, but so far – so good here. The add-on is called “Yet Another Remove It Permanently” and can be found here.
It may take you a little experimentation at first to use, but it can permanently remove content from pages. You can remove images, divisions, styles, etc. An icon appears at the bottom right of your browser where you can enable and modify this plug-in. You then use your (right-click) context menu to white-list or black-list content. Wonderful! Kudos, kimabrandt!
