    I'm pretty pissed at the ads in the Dolphin browser. Some free apps, sure, but I wish Dolphin would offer a paid, ads-free version like other apps do. I would definitely pay. That "pay or have screen space wasted" strategy really does work on some of us.

    FireFox should eliminate that problem once and for all.

    I use Pandora all day, everyday. It has ads at the bottom of the screen. *yawn* So what? I have yet to see an app that had an obtrusive ad banner. If you don't like apps with ads, stop using FREE ads ... or the app that you're having the issue with. Seems quite simple to me.

    If you're rooted, you can download AdFree from the marketplace.

    It updates the hosts file on the device and effectively blocks all the ads (both in apps and on websites in the browser)

    The 'master list' is constantly being updated, so you can update and download the newer lists to block more ads.

    I stand corrected... I just assumed if you had a G1 that you would be running the same apps as you are on the Droid and would not find anything different there. The OS has no ads... It is just individual apps.
