This extension is exactly what it says. It blocks ads. This is another Godsend from Heaven. Browsing around Facebook … and occasionally MySpace, I never see ads — or at least it’s rare. I use asterisk modifiers for all the normal advertising domains, such as domains like ‘fastclick.net’ or ‘http://oascentral.*.*/*’ so it blocks all oascentral advertising platforms.
The plugin is very basic but does an amazing job at making web browsing cleaner and more efficient — the pages load faster because of no ads.
I have installed this on quite a few of my friends’ computers as a helpful tool for them. I highly recommend it to everyone as it really helps create a better browser experience.
