Summary

Don't waste time with compliance! FastForward circumvents sites which make you wait (like adf.ly), make you do something (e.g., show.co and sub2unlock.com) and even trackers (such as bit.ly and t.co)! It also helps to prevent your IP address from being logged by sites by blocking them.

No tengo nada en contra de los enlaces publicitarios, ni siquiera me supone un problema esperar 5 o 10 segundos y darle a "Saltar publicidad", el problema es cuando estas webs abren ventanas emergentes/pestañas sin parar y nunca te redirigen al enlace original. Por eso esta extensión te ahorrará todos esos problemas e irás directamente al enlace original sin tener que pasar por estas molestas webs de publicidad.
