Even simpler: use firefox
Authored by: eredhuin on Jan 02, '05 11:14:06AM

Even simpler, if using Mozilla/Firefox: Press the ESC key to pause animated gif files. This trick doesn't work for FLASH ads. However, there is a firefox plugin called adblock, which can make even the most annoying flash ad go away.

I still use Safari most of the time, but I do use Firefox for browsing certain web sites which go overboard on the in-your-face flash ads. It's eeirly simple to add a rule to block everything that comes from "http://ad.doubleclick.net/*".
