"The toolbar at the top of your browser serves up local advertising, which is one of the ways we may be able to keep Internet access free."
Personally, I don't like anyone to have control over my browser...not even me! I found out that this toolbar can be removed in FireFox using an add-on called Adblock Plus which is a free download.
- Open FireFox
- Get Extensions (bottom left link)
- Search for 'Adblock Plus' and then 'Add to FireFox'
- Add a filter: 'meraki.com/toolbar'
Unfortunately, Adblock Plus is not available for Internet Explorer. It is very interesting to read the developer's comments regarding the cost of creating an IE add-on that performs the same task: http://adblockplus.org/blog/adblock-for-internet-explorer-is-not-an-option
Be careful of rip-offs for Internet Explorer with the same name:
I develop custom applications and only test in Internet Explorer becacause our customers use IE. I really don't like to switch between browsers, but while I am on this network I will be using FireFox. I'm glad that there's an alternative that allows me to feel comfortable, cozy, and secure.
