Making hay while the sun shines

I've been using Mozilla Firebird at work to browse news sites as the advert blocking is simple to use and an excellent function. However, you can only block adverts from a whole server (e.g uk.ad.doubleclick.net gets rid of a lot of banners) and I've been annoyed by one advert on The Register recently which is hosted on their server, so blocking it would remove all the normal images on the site as well.

Today I found AdBlock, an extension to Firebird (or Mozilla) that lets me block particular adverts, as well as whole servers. Excellent, the annoying animation has gone, and I can read the site more easily again.
