Google add-ons Can End Ads!

August 13, 2007

If you use gmail, as I do ever since my computer crashed and I lost all my computer-based contacts, and if you get annoyed by the ads, as I do, here’s a solution:

I’ve installed and it works! No more annoying ads.

    Great! Glad you’re happier. Now, have you considered using your Gmail space to save critical files? I like to encrypt certain files–like my signature, passport info–and make it available online so I can get to it no matter where I’m at.

    More on that here:

    Hi Miguel,
    Thanks for the suggestion about saving essential files by attaching them to a message and storing it in gmail. I use Box – http://www.box.net/ – for a similar purpose, but a double backup never hurts.
    BTW, the ad position I originally wrote about and displayed is still there, but I do appreciate being able to shut down the ads alongside my messages.
    Joan
