Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
IE 8 has some nice new features to help you stay safe and keep out those unwanted adverts.
You could of course just use the "IN PRIVATE" browsing option in the safety tab.
Whilst there take a look at the "In Private Filtering settings"
In there you will find a list of recently visited sites and you can select which ones get blocked or not.
Almost anything that says google syndication, google analytics, doubleclick, quantserve, addthis, can be blocked.
I would suggest do a couple at a time and browse normally for a few days. If you have any issues remove one of the blocks and check the site that had issues works OK before adding any more blocks.
Its a process of learning your browser to stay safe and keep you safer.
Blocking AD type cookies can on occasion speed up browsing as it no longer has to wander around the INTERNET to find the advert it wants you to see.
Rate this please.
