Adblock Plus ... end of story
Adblockers are evil. You're essentially stealing from a website as you're blocking what earns them money, so I never liked them much. I can see the upside of having one though, but popup blockers are enough.
The slow ad servers, viruses and silly flashy ads are too much for me.
When ads start interesting me, I'll stop blocking them.
