I don't want to use the tool google gives you to install. Instead I'd like to visit some of my ads without generating improper clicks.

Is this procedure correct in 2009?

Right click on the ad, copy the long code for url parameter, paste in new tab in explorer. Ok?

More like right click, copy, paste in notepad, select and copy the url part (after the "&adurl=" and before the "&client="), and paste in a new tab.

G should have an option under Adsense Setup where you'd list your IPs, and clicks from those IPs would be ignored.
It's stupid that a publisher cannot click an ad, even though he or she is interested on the advertised product.

I just type in the url.

Sometimes this does not work, as the url listed on the ad is not the same as the url the ad points to.

The only sure way to see the ad your visitors see is by following Koan's instructions above.
