I always love google chrome.

I love it simplicity, elegence, speed, small footprint, detachable tab, small download size and best of all.. it doesnt use much screen space.

However, there is one thing that keep make me double click firefox instead of Chrome…which is Chrome has no adblock pluss plug-in which is a very handy plugin in my opinion.

Fred not, here is the work around…say bye bye to ads :p

Download and install Privoxy at http://www.privoxy.org/
Click on the Wrench icon in Chrome in the upper right corner.
Choose options>Under The Hood>Change proxy settings.
In the Internet Properties dialog’s Connections tab, click on the LAN settings button.
Check off “Proxy settings” and in the address setting add 127.0.0.1 and in the port 8118.
If you have the option, you can also check off “Bypass proxy for local settings”.
Click “OK,” close Chrome and restart it.
