It should be against the law to auto-start video advertisements on web pages...
hmmm...really? If the user decides to goto the crappy website then....they should have to deal with the whole bag of crap that goes along with it. Don't like it? Stop going then. Browsers shouldn't be built to deter common sense rules...

the internet is AD FREE for people who take 2 minutes to install adblock and Flashblock... also try Ghostery... there's also a nice firefox "cookie burner" app that automatically kills attempts to install tracking cookies while browsing.

take 2 minutes... it is well worth it

paywalls aren't going to work, that's just silly talk.
I'm doubtful a new computer language will be written just for serving up ads...

I have no real problem with firefox except that it doesn't always render the page and I have to refresh to get the page to load. I've taken the 2 minutes and installed the addons you've linked to. It'll be interesting to see if Tom's is now, finally, add free. ...and if the functionality that I might want is any way impacted. Thanks...we shall see.

Is there an app that lets you remove the locked favorites that Verizon forces on chrome? (ESPN Zone... REALLY?)... that crap annoys me enough that I'm using firefox on my phone.

It should be against the law to auto-start video advertisements on web pages. Outside Flash updates that seemingly break everything in sight and renders a page unreadable, there's nothing more hateful than loading up a site and a blast of audio wakes up the sleeping neighbors. It's even worse when you can't locate the fiendishly hidden source.

This made me laugh so hard! The delicious irony of a Tom's writer complaining about the very thing that has made Tom's next to impossible to enjoy any more!
