I’ve been pretty happy with Chrome these last few weeks. I have Opera in my hip pocket, but even though it seems as fast as Chrome, it crashed three times within the first hour of use. No major deal, since the pages came back after a click or two, but depending on what you happen to be doing it could be an issue.
Anyway, I found AdBlock for Chrome and downloaded it. It’s working well. If you Use Chrome or Safari, give Michael Gundlach’s AdBlock programs a try. They’re freeware, but he does ask for donations. Given the aggravation that all those damned ads can inflict, if you can afford to donate, please do.
