Take back the web: anti-anti-Adblock

Remember what a relief is was when AdBlockers finally got really good and all pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, commercial videos, and the like were eliminated and you could actually surf in peace again? More and more websites started detecting AdBlockers and implementing nagging messages that you should switch them off. Recently this got more aggressive, with an increasing amount of websites banning access when they noticed a blocker, anti-Adblock if you will. You probably guessed the response: there is an anti-anti-Adblock strategy available. The Anti-Adblock killer consists of a series of 4 steps to restore you blissful surfing pleasure:

  1. Browse down to Step 1 and install the Script Manager. Basically this is a little add-on that allows the use of little formulas that slightly change how a website is displayed.
  2. Install the Addblock killer script (the little formula)
  3. Install the Adblocker add-on of your choice in Step 2 (you can skip this if you already have one installed)
  4. Click Subscribe, so your browser keeps up to date about sites that detect Adblockers. Done!

AdBlock recently came available for iOS, so you can use it in combination with Safari on your iPad/IPhone. More about that, later.
