    I have it on my desktop at home. But I don't have it enabled all the time. I use it mostly for when an ad is annoying

        I am the biggest hypocrite. I use it on some of the sites during work where the connection speed is very slow. But on my forum I also use anti-adblock plus pesterware. :P We got better ad revenue after using the anti-adblock plus pesterware.

          I'm using it every time. Just deactivate it on domains where I admin vBulletin due to a sort of bug with the ad manager

            Don't use it. Advertisements actually don't bother me on websites when used judiciously.

              I started using it only a few month ago, just could not take the stupid ads on facebook anymore. Seroiusly those small ads on facebook are so annoying. They try very hard to make them look like they are not the ads but part of facebook interface. This is just so insulting when people try to trick you like that. Anyway, I tolerate banner ads, just never usually click on them, but the Facebook ads pushed me over the edge, so I finally installed adblockplus.

              I don't browse without it anymore. Then I started thinking - how often do I normally click on the ads, what is my personal clickthrough rate? I am pretty sure it's not higher than 1 in 1000, meaning I may click on one banner or sponsored link (including Google ads) once in 1000 views.

              By the way, adblockplus does not just not show the ads, it does not download any ads, so it makes the pages load much faster if the pages have several banner or adsense ads.

                  I find ad block plus especially useful to block animated gif avatars and signature pictures on some forums that allow them.

                    Can I ask why? Dragonfly is so much better than Firebug.

                      I have it on one of my computers and not the others. One of them it won't let me install it for some odd reason.

                        I have it installed on my mac, since its processor is aging now. Otherwise i tend to live with ads, they really don't bother me 9/10 times.

                            Have never experienced a popup in Firefox unless the site ties it into a click. Those are annoying but very rare these days. At least in my browsing experience.
