AdBlock for Better Web Viewing

Google Chrome IconWe’ve all had it happen to us – you visit a website but you are instantly thrown off by the bouncing advertisement that just won’t seem to leave the screen.  While it might be easy for a person who has no visual impairment to find that tiny “x” and close the ad, those who use screen magnification programs might have difficulty tracking the flying ad down.

You can download plug-ins to your browser that will block these advertisements from popping up on your screen.

For Google Chrome, download Privoxy.  Once you download it, follow these instructions for installation.

If you are a Firefox user, download the AdBlock Plus plug-in.

For those who run Internet Explorer, download the newest version IE7pro, which has many built-in features to block advertisements.  You can read this extensive tutorial on the browser’s ad blocking properties.
