Annoying hover-to-play ads

Is anyone else finding these hover-to-play ads really annoying? Not just pointing the finger at Mobot here ;)

But half the time it's like my cursor accidentally lingered over the video then moved on, and the ad plays anyway. SO ANNOYING.

Yep, AdBlock deals with such annoyances with an almost 100% rate of effectiveness. Whenever I use a computer without some kind of advert blocker, the internet seems like an absolutely horrific place to spend time. Not to mention that websites take forever to load all of the crap flash adverts.

Now find a do-not-track plugin/add-on... ;)

It's okay mate, glad to help :). It's not only one of the easiest ways to make the internet more pleasant, but it also gives your computer a free performance boost. Win, win!

It's surprising just how many adverts the internet has, isn't it? You won't realise just how bad adverts are until you need to use someone else's computer in a few weeks or months which doesn't have it installed.
