    Hey guys,

    I switched from Windows to OS X about an year ago. I still use Windows XP in my office. I use an app called Ad-Muncher which works awesome in blocking embedded Ads and Pop-ups from websites. I love it. Since I moved to OS X, I am very annoyed with the Ads on websites. Is there any EXCELLENT Ad-blocking software for Mac? I have tried GlimmerBlocker or something like that but that sucks... If you guys know any good ones, please let me know! thank you!

    If you use Firefox there's the AdBlock add-on.

    Firefox + Adblock Plus. Works perfectly for me.

    In what way did GlimmerBlocker suck?
