    Do you use an AD Blocker (like AD Block Plus, Adaway, etc) or do you prefer seeing ads and contributing some revenue to bloggers, news sites, etc?

    I personally disable AD Blockers on some site (usually with non-obtrusive ads) and enable it on most.

    I prefere not to see any ads personally so I use some adblockers. Specifically ┬ÁBlock firefox plugin at work, AdGuard Premium (standalone) at home. I used to have AdBlockPlus plugin, AdMuncher - which was the best - the lowest resorce consumer but it didn't support https - so I gave up. AdGuard is fine but it consumes too much RAM - however I got used to it ;)
    On my Android mobile I use AdAway - light and convenience solution. That seems to be about all :p

    But you guys do know that advertisements are sometimes the sole incomes for such sites (like ours)?. I used to block ads completely but have recently allowed it on few sites due to the above reason.

    Adguard enabled all the time, and disabled when requested to do so by various sites. It has also a very good antimalware protection.
