I want to solve my problem of pesky Internet advertisers clogging my web browser to the extent that I cannot perform the task that I originally want to do.
Is there a domain blocking solution available to Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS or at least an easy-to-use firewall that can block communications with offending host names or domains?
I would not mind using IP blocking, but I am not smart on how to quickly and easily convert hundreds of host names and domain names to IP addresses for blocking.
I am keeping a sorted list of host names and domains for future input into a solution.
What should I be learning about or thinking of trying?
