  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    Why would you wan't to do that?

    It would slow the browser down to much to have any benefits.

    As iPanik says this can only serve to slow things down with no benefits.

    Adblock plus is better, use it. You won't benefit anything using both.
    I guess more people use adblock plus so it will keep getting updates quicker than adblock. ;)

    Okay, thanks for the replies! And is Adblock Plus really better than Adblock? For the Google Chrome, I mean. It says that Adblock Plus is still in beta version for Chrome...

    Go to about:flags in Chrome's URL bar. Enable experimental extensions API. Restart the browser.

    Install this:
    http://adblockplus.org/devbuilds/adblockpluschrome-experimental/00latest.crx

    that's the best adblocking you can get on Chrome

    Like an antivirus you cannot install two adblockers at the same time.

    Just pick the addon that made it effective for blocking ads.
