Awesome Ad-Free Awesome

A curated list of ad-free alternatives to popular services on the internet.

Am I saying you should refrain from using an ad blocker? No. But consider offsetting your act of disobedience with an act of affirmative support. Vote with your wallet. Put some money behind the writing you like—whether it’s a website or a magazine or a newspaper. “But such-and-such website won’t let me pay for it.” Then discover something new.

WARNING: Avoid Adblock Plus because coprorations can pay to have their ads whitelisted and uBlock (unrelated to the project above) because it solicits excessive donations and has what could be considered "ads" on its own site.
