Sad to say, there is no way within Google Chrome to block Flash ads in part because there is no plugin feature in the browser itself. For now, the only way to make this happen is to use some third-party software application that will handle the blocking.
I use Privoxy and it is a very small lightweight program that needs to run all the time in order for Flash ads to be blocked. This is because all websites that you surf will have to pass through Privoxy. The good thing about this is that this proxy does not cache your web surfs.
First things first. Search in Google for Privoxy. It is located in the SourceForge website. Follow these steps:
Go to options > Under The Hood > under Network settings click Change proxy settings button.
In Internet Properties window choose “LAN settings”
Check proxy server LAN settings and in the address setting address: 127.0.0.1 and port: 8118
Make sure “Bypass proxy for local settings” is checked.
Click “Ok” and then “Apply”.
Restart Google Chrome browser
Simple right? Now you do not have to worry about seeing unnecessary Flash ads in your browser.

But do you think he cares? I don’t think so. He held that title for 13 straight years. That already means something. It ain’t easy holding on to that title for so many years consecutively. The investor, Warren Buffett is the now richest man on the planet followed by Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helú. Gates ranks third now.
It was said that Gates’ fortune would have grown higher has Microsoft not bought Yahoo!. Guess the investors really do not have faith with Yahoo! even though it is now backed with Microsoft’s massive financial power. Even with Buffet’s top ranking, it won’t last long as he had long promised to give away his fortune posthumously, most going to Bill Gates’ foundation.
Still, I am sure that these people do not really care about the title. It does give them exposure more but in the end it is how they use the money they earn that defines who they really are.
