What browser are you using? Most of them have built in ad blockers.

I'm curious. Most browsers have built-in pop up blockers and customizable built in content blockers, but I don't know of any that have built in ad blockers. Which ones?

I'm going to assume by modzilla you mean mozilla. If so, which one of mozilla's browsers would that be, Firefox or SeaMonkey?
