Disable Ads only on a Specific Website (AdBlock Features)

Blocking ads is not only bad for the site owner but also hurting the entire internet ecosystem in general.

Why? Simply because ads are the most used revenue source for content creators on the internet (including this site).

I understand some websites have a terrible advertisement, either it’s annoying or inappropriate.

But the majority of websites obedient to something like non-intrusive advertisements to enhance the user experience.

So, is that possible to only block ads on the specific website?

Yes, you can. A popular extension named AdBlocker comes with that such feature, and I highly recommended to enable the setting since it is considered as the most ethical solution for both user and website owner.

Okay, here are the steps.
