of the internet’s most hated features. And yet they’re effective in getting people to make purchases so they continue to be a part of the internet landscape. Thankfully, internet users can find relief from these annoyances because they can use Adblock Plus to block ads on the web.

Go to adblockplus.org and download the Adblock Plus extension. That’s it! You’re now blocking pop-ups and other annoying ads.
