I have been using a wonderful plug-in for Firefox called Adblock Plus, which I recommend for everyone. It does a terrific job of block annoying ads. (There are also versions for Google Chrome and for Internet Explorer, for those of you who are still using it. And there is apparently a beta version for Safari.)
As a result, I haven’t been seeing the ads on the Daily Mirror and wasn’t aware of them until recently, when I received a complaint from a longtime reader.
This morning, however, I pulled up the website on my phone and discovered that it was impossible to navigate because of the ads. So as of now, I have switched off the ads. The modest revenue that they provide isn’t worth the hassle to me or my readers.
