Every time you go on the Internets*, your web-browser are using a lot of your broadband on loading ads, scripts and images from 3rd-party domains. But you can stop this! - and get back the speed you want for browsing the websites you like.
With the scripts below you can now block domains that serve ads and other unwanted web-content. This will result in faster browsing, mainly because your browser are not allowed to access these domains and there by not having to load ads, scripts, Flash movies or big images. You can even block the ads within YouTube movies (some geeking and ninja-tricking may be required).
These scripts are ideal for Parental Control. Blocking a website simply result in an error message or a blank image. As these script require administrative credentials, children can not remove the blocks, disable the ad-blocking extension or install another web-browser without an ad-blocking extension. All web-traffic to the blocked domain are denied. Not even the system itself are allowed to access the domains.
If the web-service does not have a domain name, but only an IP-number,
Note: Domains and subdomains are seperate domains and blocking the first does not block latter. Ie. blocking doubleclick.net does not block ad.doubleclick.net nor www.doubleclick.net. (For Windows users, please read edit-note for script.)
* Yes, plural :) Just look it up!
How to do

Q: How do I find what domain to block?
A: You can search the source code of the website with the web-content you like to block. Then locate the url where the content originate and block this (with out http:// or the trailing /images/bla-bla-bla). Web-browsers with a Web-Inspector or Developer Tool may be also useful in this process.
