Apart from aggressive tracking and advertising, I've found that PC Mag seems to have sold out altogether. The article at this link: http://www.pcworld.com/article/150576/Firefox_Add_Ons.html?page=1 ...describes (over numerous sequential ad-filled pages) "15 Must-Have Firefox Extensions". Clicking on the "Download This Extension" (or thereabouts) link leads in every case instead to PC Mag's own "advertorial" (UGH!) content about graphics cards. Did I ask about graphics cards? is this how a formerly respected glossy ink-on-paper magazine becomes a whore to advertisers? Not happy with the wasting of my time.

I am literally on a page about how to stop autoplay videos where the author "Sympathises" with the annoyance.. BUT THE SITE HAS AUTOPLAYING VIDEOS... Even with adblock on it automatically plays but with adblock its made worse since you can not actually pause the video. Talk about irony. If you can deal with annoying videos you don't give a shit about enjoy using this site but for the 99% of us that can't stand it, stay clear from PC world.

I did not know a cell phone was really just a sophisticated radio. Did you? Lots of interesting information.

Auto plays videos upon going into any webpage. I have privacy and security concerns about this. According to Avast, there's an INSANE amount of trackers on this website. I would not risk it.
