    Talk about annoying. Their ads are like an overeager puppy following you everywhere, only you know it will poop on you the moment you pick it up . . .

    Make a small donation to the Tesla Motor Club and they mysteriously go away, it must be like a magic wand!

    He said everywhere, so I assume he meant other sites as well. I get them too. I wonder how well those ads are working for Coda?

    Oh, I could get rid of the ads. But I'm sure that the possibility that I might personally buy one of their cars is the only thing keeping them in business. I'd hate to just crush their hopes and dreams that way :)

    Those are most likely remarketing (aka retargeting) ads. One way to get rid of them is to clear out your cookies. And then don't visit their website again or block cookies.

    I just found that ads were slowing down my browser. Sometimes an ad server would have problems and the browser just waits for it. Plus ads make the page harder to read. Then there was a white paper from Google describing some really nasty stuff that can happen as ad servers redirect to each other and sometimes send you to malicious sites off the mainstream ad server community. I understand that free web sites depend on ads for their revenue, but the effects were not acceptable to me. So I installed AdBlockPlus.
