Browse websites 99% adware and spam free [HOW TO]

Postby Sethioz » Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:57 pm

This is more like a tip than a guide, but never the less.
I rarely see any ads on the websites i visit.
all thanks to 2 little extensions for opera browser. I do have same things for firefox, but Opera's extensions seem to be working better.

1. Opera AdBlock > https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ ... ckforopera
2. Ghostery > https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ ... /ghostery/

If links do not work, GOOGLE for them !
Ghostery allows you to choose some personal lists, it's very straight forward, but if you don't understand something, post here.

99% of ads, popups and other spam gets blocked whenever i browse sites.
when i go on youtube or facebook, i don't see a single advert. Some youtube videos have 10 - 30 second advert before video plays, these have been removed by these 2 extensions.
on Facebook, usually you see lot of adverts on right side, i don't have any of these. These 2 extensions get rid of 99% of such shit you don't want to see on any website you visit. Ghostery also blocks all tracking / 3rd part websites, such as google analytics, making sites load faster.

These extensions are also good if you are worried about your privacy, you can visit any website you want without being afraid of some spyware or viruses that spread via browsers.

Thanks.
I'm using both of them for Chrome from a few minutes now and these two are really good.
Youtube works ALOT better + other websites are faster and better too.
