AdSuck – Ad Block alternative

AdSuck, from the good folks at Conformal – the makers of such awesome tools as Xombrero, is an alternate means of blocking ads from your web browsing experience.

I prefer AdSuck because, unlike Ad Block et al, AdSuck actually blocks the advertising from ever reaching your web connected device[s] by using DNS blacklisting to prevent blacklisted connections from ever being completed.

There are other, similar, ad blocking applications which use DNS, and I’ll be looking into those in due time, but for now AdSuck is good for my purposes.
