Online advertising is a divisive thing. On the one hand, many bloggers and website owners depend on the revenue generated by these ads. On the other hand, badly designed or intrusive ads can be disruptive, to say the least, and tracking cookies and similar advertising trackers raise many privacy concerns. To make things worse, many sites out there bombard you with tons of ads, and quite often you will feel that you have no choice but to use an ad blocker because either the ads slow down the site loading too much, or they are incredibly annoying and get in the way or distract from your browsing.

This is where ad blockers and anti-tracking software come in. They allow users to block irritating ads, and in extreme scenarios, block malicious ads that seek to infect computers. Besides removing ads, the ad blockers help save bandwidth and speed up browsing websites by cutting down the amount of content a page load. Some ad blockers also come with privacy protection tools that block scripts, which track your browsing habits and opt you out of intrusive marketing systems. There are many adblocker, security and privacy Extensions available for Firefox, Chrome and other popular browsers.

Although we do not condone the use of Ad blockers, we admit that it is a necessary evil. Also, we request users who use ad blockers to disable the extension on sites they regularly visit to support them.

There are several ad blocking extensions available for Google Chrome and some work better than others. To help you in choosing the right ad block extension, we have compiled a list of 5 ad blocking extensions for Google Chrome that could help you to take control of your browsing experience.

Google Improves Phishing Protection In Gmail For Android

Google has updated its Gmail app for Android with new and improved phishing protection to help immediately identify nasty links. The new phishing protection relies on the same technology that powers Google’s Safe Browsing, which is used in apps like Google Chrome and the Play Store.

Now, Gmail will alert you to suspicious links embedded in the body text of the email. When you open up the message, it will warn you explicitly of dubious links. It is the kind of thing that could really help those who are not too privy to the connected world’s many nasty tricks.

With cloud storage services you can store your videos, music, movies, photos and files in the cloud for free and access them from anywhere on the go through the internet. Your data is safe with the cloud storage providers and you do not run the risk of a crashed or stolen hard disk.

From Box to DropBox, Google to Apple, there are plenty of free storage to be had in the cloud. Many companies use free cloud storage as a way to entice users into their clouds in hopes that they will pay more for additional storage.

While the premium offerings provide more space, the free cloud storage offered is usually more than enough for most people. Better yet, many of these free cloud storage providers give you even more free space for referring friends or performing other tasks.

Please note that this list is in alphabetical order and not ordered by any specific criteria. Moreover, you should only take this as a guide and we suggest you do your research before committing to a provider.

Another thing to note is that the market for free cloud storage is volatile and offers from these providers can change frequently, including being eliminated with little or no warning.

So without further ado, let see the list.
