Title: Pop up ads on various websites...
Post by: SidecarFlip on August 31, 2016, 02:11:19 PM
Running Ad Blocker allows me to watch the number of blocked ads on various websites...  I think the biggest offender of pop-ups is Townhall Daily with Faux News next.  I racked up no less than 250 popups from a single view of Townhall just a little while ago...

Amazing.

4 on MT  today and over the month Ad blocker has blocked 103,525 popups.

I haven't checked the number it blocked since I installed it. But just the other day a site recognized I had a blocker and suggested I remove to enjoy the content of their site.  Sorry!

I just find it amazing the amount of crap you can get just by viewing a page...  What do they call it?  Embedded advertising?

Ad blocker is a great program.  So is CCleaner.
