Plugins and CSS User browser

Ads are a user’s worst enemy. I can’t say how many times I have left a website, which I found interesting, just because the ads on the site were out of control. I’m sure everyone in the world can name at least one website they left because of the ads.

I understand the need for income, but at what point does it really start to remove revenue? If you are rejecting users because of their ads, isn’t that affecting your web site footprint? Anyway, that’s not what we’re going to focus on in this article. We will focus on how to combat websites that are too enthusiastic in their ads.

Adblock. Add is a plugin that is available for modern browsers that does exactly what your name suggests: it blocks ads. The one I use in my Google Chrome is called “block “, but there are other calls “block plus ” and the like.

These add-ons read the HTML and/or JavaScript code of the page, and block the ads so they don’t insert into the page, which is pretty good. The result of this is a cleaner user interface without the ad clutter. The downside is that the website will lose revenue and may not like it blocking the ads. In short, having an ad blocker is almost an obligation today to keep overlays and pop-up ads under control. But, believe me, some of them still happen. Those who do, most add-ons offer a “block this ad” option where you tell the add-on where the ad is, and it stands up!

Do you remember that part about the website that doesn’t like blocking ads? Yes, some sites are blocking the user completely if they can’t do anything with them (looking at you theChive). That’s when another plugin is useful: User CSS.

This add-on, and those you like, allow you to insert CSS on the website to suit your personal tastes. If you don’t know, CSS is a language that adds style to a website; Without it, you’d be looking at a lot of black text, like a book. CSS controls for positioning, color, backgrounds, image sizes, etc.

Disabling sites that do not allow you to navigate with a block of ads is quite simple. If you right-click whatever you are blocking in your path, usually a pop-up window, then you can “inspect” it. Once you see the item, you can easily point it with CSS and tell it to show “None “, meaning “Get out of Here! “.

If you’re not familiar with CSS or browser inspection tools, a quick Google will put you up, it’s very easy.

Of course, if you go to a site that you love and trust, I would suggest buying your subscription program or disabling your ad blocker, just to show your support.

Otherwise, block my friends! Don’t let a website push you for money. Counterattack
