AdsOff is really 3 programs in one. AdsOff!, PopOff!, and FemtoFast!. AdsOff! keeps your Netscape, Internet Explorer, and Opera browsers from downloading ads (banners and/or buttons) thus speeding up your surfing so you don't have to wait for them to download. PopOff! keeps those annoying extra windows from popping up when entering or exit a web page. FemtoFast! is an accelerator that can make your 28.8 modem seem like a 56.6 and your 56.6 seem like a network.

AdsOff! is configurable and you can turn it on or off. You can choose to filter only large banners or all ads. You can choose to have the ad appear as a hypertext link, an empty frame, or not at all. You can set the strength of the filter to Weak, Medium, or Strong. PopOff can be Disabled or set to Medium or Strong filtering. You can click on update filter to keep your filters up to date. It will work with virtually any ISP including AOL and MSN.

All in all this is a pretty great program. I like the ability of being able to turn it off and on. It's easy to use so the novice user can jump right in and the power user will love it to. You can try it for free for 30 days before registering. Isn't $14.95 a small price to pay for all the time you will save. Definitely a "Must Check It Out" program. There is a Windows NT version available for download at the website.]
