Greasemonkey and blocking ads

Next, I installed a Greasemonkey script for blocking the ads in the right hand column of CNN articles. Quite good because it displays more of the article per page. Instead of finding scripts for each website, I installed the adblock extension for mozilla. It allows you to filter out ad images by their URL address. After installing, I noticed an noticeable improvement in my surfing. Today I improved my surfing speed by 2x: by blocking ads and using the windows host file for DNS caching (using a freeware program called CIP). I must say: I haven't enjoyed surfing this much since I got DSL.
