Question Banner Advertisement blocking

Is there software for linux that will block web page advertisements?

(I use Norton Firewall on my xp computer and I rarely see any advertising)

do you mean messages that pop up and say something and need you to click ok before they go away and it pops up in a windows alert message? thats a builtin service called messager in windows. Your on linux so don't worry.

If you mean as in popups from web-surfing... I use mozilla firebird and mozilla 1.4, they have popup blockers builtin and work awesomly. I've yet to see them block pages that I try to open but never see somthing that opens when I don't tell it to, in otherwords it doesn't misbehave.

hope this helps
