    it interferes with two finger scrolling, if the pointer enters into the ad under the main story it's impossible to two finger scroll, is their anyway to fix this?

    You don't have to be a demi-god. You can elect to be called a Contributor or keep your processor ranking if you wish.

    The only sanctioned way to remove ads off this site is by contributing. That eliminates ads from the front page and forums

    for obvious reasons, no other methods are approved, and should not be advertised. :)

    i'm not so much complaining about the ad, more the fact that it stalls scrolling, which may be to do with the formatting of the page.

    i will contribute some time, just as i said i have no money, like ziltch

    Hector, have you ever tried Camino? It's based on Mozilla code, and doesn't seem to suffer from the scrolling issues. It's not Safari, but it's sure a heck of a lot prettier and more Mac OS X-ified than Firefox. Give it a whirl and see if you like it ;)

    tried it a while ago, did not like it, i don't like the way firefox and camino handle proxies, or history, or those damn annoying messages with unchecked tickboxes asking if you want the message to always come up, if you check it they come up, and if you don't they still come up, it's hell.

    safari is my perfect browser setup wise, nothing will ever replace it.
