How can I install an ad blocker for Chrome?
I received the following small tutorial on how to do this, but I can't guarantee it works and I don't know about potential side-effects... please use with care (quote HTML'ified):1. Install free software Proxomitron. It stays in your system tray and only eats 3MBs of RAM.
2. In Google Chrome go to Options -> Under the Hood and click on "Change Proxy Settings".
3. A new window will open. Click on "LAN Settings", tick "Use a proxy server for your LAN". In the Address field enter "localhost" and for Port enter "8080". Also tick "Bypass proxy server for local addresses"
That's it really. It's not as effective as the Firefox Adblock extension but it works well nonetheless.
