This will eliminate almost all ads on the web. It will also block access to alot of adult type sites. In general it will help to spped up surfing by not downloading ads . It also blocks access to alot of adult type sites, so it will help keep your kids off of them.

Best of all it is free

On OS X and *nix save it to your etc directory(remember it is case sensitive)
