Modified host file, no need to install software and it's multi-browser. No information about me.



How do you keep your host definitions current?

The various AdBlocks and Ghostery all operate on the subscription model.

Here is the one I use:

I had to rename it to see the site the OP linked, and it had no preference nor any personal info. I'll try it on my work computer on which I don't have neither a hosts file or an adblock when I'll get there.

Here's one i've seen linked around a lot, but never used myself: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt

I personally prefer Ghostery because it tells me exactly what was blocked and when.

thank you!
