I am SO with you on this Les. I have researched the ads and I am pretty sure there is no way to disable them- the cost of the free websites and browsers we use. I myself would pay a reasonable amount of money not to be marketed too!~

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong about this.

Mouse over popups can be useful for some things, but for ads over text they are just plain annoying.

With that said, you can disable them since its just javascript code to show them, but that means you’d be disabling javascript which could affect parts of a website that rely on it. Some pages rely on javascript to work properly nowadays, although a well designed page should work without javascript.

EDIT: Crank has a good point, I wasn’t aware of them being disabled when logged in. Good news :)

If you are logged in there are no “mouse overs”.

Those things really piss me off. If you’re using Firefox, Adblock Plus works. http://adblockplus.org/en/

Free, installs quickly without rebooting (if I recall correctly) and it works. I’d be willing to bet they have versions for IE and other browers too.

I don’t usually recommend software but when I do it’s after I’ve had a few Dos Equis.

on edit: and I don’t believe it disables javascript.

Me too, Bill…..They are annoying as hell…..That’s why I don’t watch regular t.v. because of all the annoying, stupid advertisements, and commercials…..A one hour program will have 18-20+ minutes of commercials….pita.

Hmmm. I’ve never seen them in Firefox. What browser are you using?
