Or you could, you know, run a modern browser with AdBlock and never see any ads.

It tests browser compliance for standards. There is specifications for how a browser should render elements on a page, otherwise you have chaos. If it fails there is no safety concern, just means it's not rendering something correctly.

If you're building web pages it's an issue especially if it's major browser.

Well then, you really shouldn't have seen it, right?


Dude111, you have to be clear that the settings you are suggesting is for home users, at work places, changes might be more or less strict based on company requirements and policies.

I do use Adblock plus or Adblock Edge (with Waterfox), Noscript and Web of Trust even at work but especially NoScript would create issues for most users at work without knowing how to tweak the options of this particular add-on.

This is one thing I do with NoScript because it stop it from being too instrusive to the point where functionality is not effected. Even at home, it might be needed to tweak some of these add-on settings to find the sweet spot.
My $0.02's worth.

Don't visit sites that have ads, problem solved. The services you are using cost money to produce and it's those ads that pay for it.

If the use of Adblock and similar things continues to rise one of two things are going to happen. Sites will have to move onto more obtrusive methods of generating ad revenue or be subscription based. Since most people are unwilling to go the subscription based route more obtrusive ads it will be, Adblock is not some magic bullet. It can be defeated if the site owner wants too and since so many are seeing declines in ad revenue it's only a matter before many of them start blocking adblock users.
