Or Chrome?

It's becoming absolutely ridiculous I can't browse anything without ads showing up all around the article that I'm trying to read, and those **** ads are usually high res vids, audio, what not, puts the browser to a crawl!

    Adblock plus + Noscript. Can't remember the last time I saw an advert. Seriously.

    So for NoScript you basically add a white list?

    Yep. Each time a page tries to run a script, it asks for your permission and whether you'd like scripts to be permanently allowed (or blocked) from that page/site.

    Chrome with ad blocker is the best.

    IE leaves you more exposed to attacks given that it's the most commonly used browser, attackers tend to target that browser with things.
