Why come there are no ads on mrs foots laptop?

When I watch Topshot on my desktop (XP, chrome) on the History Channel's site, I get the usual ads every so often. The other week I watched the show on my wife's laptop (7, chrome) and when the time came for the ads, they were just skipped over.

Why is this? What is difference of them?

Maybe you get a certain number of ad free views before they know you're hooked?

figured it out. Chrome doesn't support that feature of adblock, but firefox does. I must have been using firefox on her laptop. I just installed adblock on my firefox and watched it fine with no commercials.

Maybe she doesn't surf as much porn as you.

for a short while. Once you update to the latest FF, adblock plus won't work.

God protects Mrs Foot's brain from things she never needs to see.
You, however, couldn't be cleaned by a million carwashes.

One more reason to stay with FF 3.6, instead of staying up to date w/the rest of the world.
