Blocking websites

Adblock Plus is great for firefox but what if you want to block ads and trackers (google analytics) for all browsers?

It’s really quite simple.

1. Go to a terminal

2 Enter this code

sudo nautilus

3. Browse to etc/hosts

4. Copy/past everything from here.

Update: besides that list add these to #[Gmail ads] #[Google AdWords] #[Google Analytics] #[TrackingCookie.Googleadservices]

5. Save the file

note: there are lots of lists like the one in point 4, so you could use anyone you want.
