Unlike Firefox or Chrome needs third party plug-in to block ads (AdBlock, AdSweep, etc.,) the latest IE8 don’t requires any third-parties. It has in-built Ad-blocking feature, otherwise called In-Private Browsing.
In-Private Browsing is as in Microsoft’s words,
InPrivate Browsing prevents Internet Explorer from storing data about your browsing session. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing where you visited and what you looked at on the web. When you start InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer opens a new window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is only in effect during the time that you use that window. You can open as many tabs as you want in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, close the browser window
To use the In-Private Browsing and block the annoying ads, in IE8 Window do the one of the following to enable the feature.
- Click Safety menu and select “InPrivate browsing”
- Click a new Tab, click the link “Open an InPrivate Browsing window”
- Click to open the InPrivate Browsing menu on the bottom of the Window as in below picture.
- Press Control+Shift+P
If you open the InPrivate Browsing Settings, you can set to “Automatically block” the Ads or “Choose content to block or allow”. If you choose the second option, you can choose (obviously) the particular Ads like “googlesyndication.com” .
