Default TRYING to be ok here without using Adblock

... but it's SOOOO hard.

I'm using Firefox 4 Beta 6 so I can't use Adblock anyway, but man, the ads here really slow down the experience here. I have to re-load pages a lot, as loading often gets hung up on one of the ads.

Use Chrome and you won't have to worry about slowdowns

Some ad from kontera.com is really slowing things down tonight.

I just use NoScript - it allows the non-obnoxious ads while blocking any scripted nonsense. Unfortunately the latter seems to be all NVNews has.

I'm working on getting some of the ads replaced with AIB/IHV ads that will be a little more tolerable and click-worthy.

I'd much rather pay a monthly fee than have to deal with ads like that.

I would be ALL about that. help MikeC with finances for the site, and enjoy an ad-free browsing situation.
