After a while you start to get in the habit of dragging your cursor to the side of the screen when moving it to the tabs or menus at the top of your browser window, to stop the stupid thing covering your window again.

Am I the only one who has noticed this? Is this the future of the web, where you can't actually use websites for anything because you can't see them for the ads?
i know what you are talking about. adblock and no javascript on firefox eliminated them for me.
