"On Firefox it's relatively easy. Use AdBlock plus, but define your own custom rules. I added an exception for stackoverflow.com and other sites I like and support. It also has the ability to block flash ads, which is nice.

I haven't really used IE lately, but from what I understand, IE8, if used in ""InPrivate Browsing"" mode, will block certain ads."

IE8: InPrivate filter (config -> advanced config -> import)

import this file (download it to you pc and extract it first):

"+1 For adblock+

Excellent extension for firefox. What I love is you can just right click any ad and select ""Block""

Its very flexible.

Or, try out http://www.privoxydotorg/ if you want something even more effective and flexible to your needs."
