As I wrote here, I use an ad-blocker. My reasons for doing so stay the same. I cannot hear the plaintive cries of the sites whose revenue will suffer if I don’t see all their ads, especially not over the shrieks of the malware they propagate.
Until recently I was using AdBlock Plus, but I switched about a month ago to uBlock Origin. I am now so glad I did! Because, as of this week, AdBlock Plus is an advertising network. The “Plus” is now, Look at Our Ads!
I will admit, I did not see this coming. I switched because I found uBlock Origin to have much better performance on the majority of pages I go to.
People, you owe it to yourself to block ads. And use an ad blocker that actually does that, not one that has flipped to the exact opposite!
