I (some guy named Michael) liked Adblock Plus for Firefox SO MUCH that I wrote ad blockers for Chrome and Safari.

Install AdBlock from getadblock.com, and from then on you won't see ads in Facebook, on YouTube, or most anywhere on the internet.

I spent basically all of December 2009 in a haze writing AdBlock instead of sleeping or working or doing festive type things, and spent most of my free time since then improving it.

It's turned out way more successful than I dared hope. Every once in a while I'll turn to my wife and say "WHAT?! We have 10 million people using this? It's THE most popular Chrome extension?" I'm flabbergasted by how many people rely on me to keep ads out of their face. Faces? Whatever.

And I love every one of you for using my program :)
