Forbes ( has recently started to detect ad-blockers and is showing a pop-up :-

Any way to circumvent it?

    Hi Shashank,

    This is an experiment Forbes is running. Some users are finding that you can get through to the site just by continuing to try. I think one person reported that it took 10 tries, but the site eventually stopped showing that warning and simply let him through.

    You can also try the instructions in this Knowledge Base article about websites detecting AdBlock and let us know how it goes!

    A quick alternative (if you don't mind seeing ads, of course!) is just to disable AdBlock on that site. Click the AdBlock button and select Don't run on pages on this domain, and then click Exclude.
