What annoyances do you like to zap!

Post by luntrus » Wed Jun 17, 2009 8:45 pm

Hi forum friends,

Not being able to block things in my SRWare's Iron, I stumbled upon some add-ons there through specific bookmarklets:
Linkify, Translate, Take Screenshot, Video Downloader and Adblock+ more or less derived from

P.S. SRWare's Iron is a GoogleChrome klone without the privacy issues...

A collection for zapping annoyances on webpages can be found here - drag and drop into the bookmark toolbar...


What do you like to zap on occasion inside Firefox?

I zap everything, except for the text in which I'm interested, and whatever still (non-animated) graphics I find useful or interesting, or at least unobtrusive enough not to be worth the trouble of blocking. (ABO is priceless for this.) Unless playing, e. g., a specific Flash video, everything else goes bye-bye. Only exception: non-animated, unobtrusive ads at a *very* few sites that I'd like to support, Giorgio's obviously being among them. KISS.
