I would also strongly recommend adzapper.  Honestly, when was the last
time you bought something from a web ad?  Why waste your bandwidth
(thus money) and cache space, and add worthless distractions to your
browsing experience to support someone's broken revenue model?
Install adzapper, and start browsing like it's 1993 again.

If you're really slick, you might be able to use adzapper to replace
ads in favor of yours, though I don't think you should expect users to
actually put up with interruptive BS.
