Anyone else notice this??? On some websites like ehow, where you have to scroll down to read the entire write-up, there are adds that sit right next to the scroll bar (in my case, a verizon ad). You can use the scroll bar in your browser as normal, but if you let off the mouse, it will take you to another website on a new tab. Maybe your add will be different, but it happens to me here: http://www.ehow.com/how_5545177_use-tape-head-demagnetizer.html Super annoying. Its not really a pop-up because it doesnt happen automatically. If I dont use the scroll bar on the right side (e.g. click in the window and use the arrow keys instead) it doesnt happen. Any way to stop this stupid gimmick? Never had it happen to me until tonight... Thanks!

I use an ad blocker extension on my browser. (chrome) Invasive advertisements make me angry. Do not get me started on Pharmaceutical commercials.

I thought this was going to be about how BITOG sometimes assumes I was at a certain point in a thread when I open one up, and then I have to go back to page 1 post 1 because I've never previously read the thread.

I use Adblock Plus on both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox with the EasyList filter subscriptions and I don't see any of those ads. I can't stand ads on websites. The adblock plus extensions make the browsing websites much better as they block all of the ads.
