ublock. I like it a little better than adblock, but both work well. I can't tolerate the internet without an ad blocker, especially on mobiles.

Makes me sad to see what they've done to my beautiful internet.


Agreed. It wasn't this bad even a decade ago.

I don't use ad blockers anymore, even though I still hate ads. On most of the websites that I use, ads can be easily ignored so it's not really a problem to me. The only ones I find really annoying are Youtube ads but I still don't block them so at least my favorite channels can make a little money out of it.

Noscript and AdBlock Plus do a pretty good job blocking most stuff for me.

adblock plus + Noscript. i don't mind mobile ads most of the time, but some websites will pop up a video ad, take the whole screen when all i wanted was read the article uninterrupted.

Ad block for sure. I hate adds they do nothing but harm my computer even if the website says they're harmless. Crunchyroll's ads are safe though but i still hate them. Putting adds on a website only makes visitors not want to use it.

I don't use ad blocks because I want the content I view to turn a profit like they deserve to.

ads for mobile devices are the worst imo

i don't use any adblocking extensions on my android phone.. so i have to deal with those annoying pop up ads that will not go away unless you press "OK" on it..

but instead of pressing ok i'll just close the browser and clear all data for the app.. since who knows what it it will inject/download to my phone after i pressed ok.


those game websites that put ads in between paragraphs within an article ? i don't know if they increased the sensitivity of those ads since as I'm scrolling down the ads will pop with the slightest touch..

also.. youtube app is notorious with ads.. 30 second ads for a 2-3 minutes video.. you can't skip it -- on my laptop i don't have to deal with this since ublock origin will take care of the ads..

i guess this is why they want you to get the apps instead.. since in their own app the ads will be uncensored/unblocked vs a browser

i'm trying out Firefox mobile app now. since you can install ublock origin for it as well..



i guess there will be exceptions.

**i didn't know about this ..

I used Adblock on explorer but it made the browser slow so I uninstalled it.
