I previously showed you how to block ads when browsing; however, InPrivate browsing in IE8 takes some time to learn which content needs blocking. Windows Forums moderator rsvr85 has written a guide, which shows you how to update InPrivate’s block list with AdBlock’s list, which will cut out ~80% of ads instantly.

    I don’t know – I honestly doubt that IE will ever catch up with FF. The biggest thing is the sheer number of add-ons and users creating add-ons that keeps FF ahead.
