Interest based ads means you've no idea if it targets you or your website.
Before the interest based stuff I was in touch with the adsense team as they were pushing their Google maps stuff hard and it conflicted with some of my content.
They claimed I could block it using the competitive fitler -and it worked- they claimed they did pay the ads, and I saw a noticable drop in revenue as I blocked it/unblocked it.
Currently it's unblocked and I do get them it seems -but well interest based they might know I've some interst in browser, mapping technology etc.-, but their ads have changed so the content of the ads isn't in the context of my website misleading my visitors anymore.
As far as browsers go: MSIE: just say no.
