Banner ads? What banner ads? Appliance? We doan need no steenking appliance. Use your `hosts` file:

Windows, Linux, Mac OS X ... works the same for all. Gone.

Note that occasionally a site's functionality *depends* on the rendering of ads that your `hosts` file may be blocking.'s 'Free Day Pass' is an example. In that case, temporarily rename your `hosts` file to `hosts.bak` (or whatever), and reload the page. No need to restart your browser or anything like that. Do your business, then restore `hosts`.

I haven't seen a banner ad in years.

BTW, it's a pretty good idea to set the read-only bit on your `hosts` file. Malware would love to get in there.
