Internet Explorer 8 is the latest version of the Microsoft browser which has improved alot from its predecessors. Internet Explorer 7 did a great jump from IE 6 which had too many bugs. If you’re not using Internet Explorer 8, I would strongly recommend that it’s worth trying. Internet Explorer 8 can be downloaded from the following link:

Internet Explorer 8 has a feature called inPrivate filtering. InPrivate Browsing prevents Internet Explorer from storing data about your browsing session. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing where you visited and what you looked at on the web.

If you want to block advertisements from various advertisement companies and you don’t want to see ads on the sites you visit, then use the following method to block the advertisements in Internet Explorer 8.

Open Internet Explorer 8.

Go to Tools –> Internet Options –> Programs –> Manage Add-Ons.

On the left hand menu select InPrivate Filtering.

inPrivateFiltering

Select Import on the bottom right of the window. And select the file that you can download from the following location:

IE8 inPrivate Ad Filter List (87.2 KiB, 18,653 hits)

And you’re good to go. Now you’re safe from most of the annoying advertisements that most of the websites are showing. Enjoy!
