Why Firefox Is Blocked?

By | August 21, 2007 | 2 Comments

It’s all about ads blocker…

You’ve reached this page because the site you were trying to visit now blocks the FireFox browser.

whyfirefoxisblocked.com

And here’s why:

Software that blocks all advertisement is an infringement of the rights of web site owners and developers. Numerous web sites exist in order to provide quality content in exchange for displaying ads. Accessing the content while blocking the ads, therefore would be no less than stealing. Millions of hard working people are being robbed of their time and effort by this type of software.

This is interesting but it won’t change anything.

P.S. Not only Firefox can block ads. Will it block those too?

    Huh? Every browser has possibility to block ads.
    Should developers also block those who don’t have flash player (I’m surfing mostly with plugins disabled, just because of irritating flashing ads)? Instead they should put more effort into creating more friendly ads, like google ads. If user blocks certain type of ads, there must be a reason for doing this (ads that shows in front of webpage, anyone?).

    hehe, that’s funny. opera is even mentioned on that page you’ve linked, yet they didn’t get that opera has an adblock function included whereas you need a plugin to do that in firefox.
