An ad blocker (the web is horrible with ads enabled)

I call bullshit. I've heard this claim many times, but personally I've never found it to be a problem. I surf the web without an ad blocker, and I barely notice them anyway. Now a flash blocker is without doubt necessary. But since hv3 doesn't yet support flash anyway, that's a non-issue.

Whether you find web ads intolerable or not is surely a personal matter. I
certainly do, in part because thanks to amblyopia my eyes are rarely
pointing in exactly the same direction: if one has unwanted flashy blinky
brightly coloured adverts in its visual field, it'll completely drown out
the text visible in the other eye's field.

Other people may just dislike the attention-grabbing flashing, or perhaps
just think they're tacky. :)
