I use Adblock Plus and find it useful and helpful.  Some sites can detect ad blockers and won't render properly unless you white list them, but it has lots of filtering and configuration (although I don't have a need for a lot of that, it just works...).

I use a router based solution that prevents all my computers from getting many annoying ads.  As with any ad-blocker, you potentially cause problems - sometimes I have to turn it off on the router if I want to stream TV shows from major networks' websites.

And my router is free (if you have a spare PC).

I'll second Bill Prew's suggestion. Adblock Plus is superb at blocking pesky adds, and you can easily disable it for sites that are affected when an Add Blocker is in use. I have ABP enabled on all my browsers. (Chrome, Firefox, IE) and wouldn't surf without it. Some news sites, in particular, are notorious for filling your browser screen with adds.
At the company, we noticed that after switching from adblock to ublock origin, the cpu load went down considerably on our internet server (alll users use the same server). Whatever adblock does, ublock does it better.

Also please note that starting this Thursday, chrome will unleash its built-in adblocker. Let's see what it can do.
