For those complaining about Adblock plus selling out... Have you actually looked at the requirements for Ad's that adblock will allow (even paid for?). Personally, I'm in full support of Adblock Plus campaign to pressure ad companies into returning to non-intrusive and non-annoying ads. Advertising *can* be a positive thing if the money helps sponsor content on web pages *and* potentialy provides useful information to people who might benefit from learning about a product or service.
Google used to be on the forfront of promising a clean and non-annoying ad network. They built their whole search engine reputation on it. Unfortunately, they since sold out and became the biggest pedler and annoying ads currently in business. A firm hand is needed to bring the entire ad industry to heel and hold them to a standard that will control public annoyance and malware both. If Adblock Plus can achieve this, while getting paid for their own work in the process, all the power to them. I think Firefox should partner with Adblock Plus to include the plugin by default with new installs, while getting a cut of the sponsered acceptibe ads.
