A new add-in for Firefox kills off advertising found on a page and replaces it with curated art.
Addart will work with the Adblockplus. While Adblockplus replaces each advert with a less annoying blank space, Addart will connect to an online database of artworks and dump them in the space.
The picture database will be updated every two weeks and include the work of contemporary artists.
The idea is being pushed by Steve Lambert, and developed by an outfit called Eyebeam.
