Blocks annoying video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, banners and much more.
Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads, and supports websites by not blocking unobtrusive ads by default (configurable).
Collector's Note Block ads, what can I say more. I just recently switched to this; I was previously sold to the usercontent.css method (see here http://www.gozer.org/mozilla/ad_blocking/), which I had eventually converted into Stylish styles, but since I cannot find recently updated ad-blocking .css files and cannot find an AbBlock FilterSet to CSS converter, I switched to Adblock. Seems to do the jog just great so far.
The easy way to download and convert Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites.
Collector's Note Facilitates the downloading of streaming videos (e.g. YouTube).
Greasemonkey by Anthony Lieuallen, Aaron Boodman, others
