Firefox Addon to Stop Adwords CPC?
So I don't cost people money when doing research.

Does anyone know of one? So rather than taking me to: http://www.google.co.uk/aclk?sa=l&Z_Wnw&q=http://example.com

which tracks the click through Google. An addon which takes off the first part of the URL and takes you directly to: http://example.com so their Adwords tracking and costs aren't effected.

Also, is this against Google TOS or anything like that?

[edit reason] switch to example.com - it can never be owned [/edit]

How about the webmaster earning a few cents from your visit to his/her site through adsense ? You'll cost them money.

The advertiser wants to pay money for showing their ad.

Yes, but not when it's someone like me who is researching competitors. I feel bad for clicking links and costing them anywhere from $0.50 unto $5+ per click, especially if I visit them more than once. And most people who know what they're doing don't pay $5 a click and then have adsense on their website (I wouldn't click anyway). They'll most likely have a product which I have no intention of buying. They're basically guaranteed to lose money with people like me. I know I wouldn't like window shoppers wasting my money...

I just want an addon so I don't have to keep right clicking their ad and pasting in their direct URL because it's time consuming and clicking their ad and costing them money is unfair if i'm not going to buy anything.
