I'm still getting the odd mobrewards.org ad but it seems they have also set up shop at another URL: mobgifts.org

These ads are identical and just as intrusive. They're really getting in the way of me browsing xda by hijacking every other tab that I open

If you're rooted, just use AdFree. Works flawlessly, gets rid of in-app ads too.

I find the video ads at the bottom of the page perticularly frustrating as the suddenly start playing audio without warning. Have to keep my PC on Mute all the time if I'm checking XDA.

I don't mind ads, but the video ones need to go.

Thanks to everyone who mentioned AdFree!

Is it worth adding any of the additional ad block lists featured on the developer's website?

Or would this slow browsing down by having thousands of records in the hosts file?

First time i have ever had it happen and it scared the crap out of me!!! AUDIO/VIDEO ads at the end of posts in a thread... I couldn't get a screen capture of it as I closed the window rather quickly after finding the source of the noise... But it woke up the wife as I was in the bed with my laptop!!! SAY NO TO AUDIO/VIDEO ADS PLEASE!!!
