Blocking ads in Google Chrome for Windows

Here's a slick little hack.

Download and install Privoxy, a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data, managing HTTP cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk.

Click the wrench, choose Options, Under the Hood, Change Proxy Settings, which opens the control panel applet. Choose LAN Settings, set your proxy settings to 127.0.0.1 port 8118.

Flush your caches and cookies.  It's not perfect, but it is good enough to make me not miss AdBlock in Firefox.
