Google Adsense spews SVG & Data URI based image ads too to get past blockers

Firefox allows you to block images originating from a specified domain. This trick can be used to block image ads without bothering about installing a browser add-on. In Firefox, right click on the offending image ad on the page you are viewing in Firefox & from the context menu, you have to select View Image Info & click on the checkbox "Block images from {site name}".


If you don't like Flash ads or Flash content that auto-starts within Chrome, type chrome://settings/content in your address bar and then press enter. In the scrollable "Content Settings" panel that opens, scroll down to "Plug-ins" and click on "Click to play". From then on, Flash content will wait for you to click them before they run. Similar settings exist for other browsers as well.

Google Adsense now spews SVG & Data URI based image ads too to get past blockers:

Firefox (v26) doesn't consider the above SVG ad as an image and the View Image Info... option doesn't show up in the context menu. Therefore you can't block it using the browser setting.
