What Google Doesn’t Want You To Know — Adblocking plugin for Firefox

Posted on July 8, 2009 by in software

This Adblocker Plus plugin for Firefox really works. You install it, subscribe to a filter list that is maintained by the community, and it effectively takes away most advertisements from the internet. I was able to get rid of some particularly annoying advertisements on
— a free sales tool. It also took all the adverts out of my Gmail and off of Google’s search result pages. I disabled the blocker for Google search because I often use the ads that appear with search. But I can see what Google is worried about, and why they’re developing their own browser Chrome and why they’re even developing their own operating system. Google’s advert revenue is in the billions of dollars. Google already pays Firefox millions of dollars put them as the default search engine. Is this why Firefox doesn’t come with Adblocker Plus as an installed plugin — hmmm?
