Thread: Ad blocker

  1. #1

    Default Ad blocker

    Suggestions for good, free ad blocker, been using Adblock and Adblock Plus for several years but past week or so been messing up (couldn't download and kitties from pinterest for Caturday, site came up but the little circle just kept spinning, same thing on some of my other sites talked to a neighbor said she had same problem so she closed Adblock and problem solved, maybe cause that's what I ended up doing but seems like more adds coming in than messages so have to find something else. Thought maybe if I reinstalled Adblock it would work correctly now, liked it because I use 3 browsers, mostly Chrome but also IE and Firefox and ADB worked with all.
    So thanks in advance for suggestions, Googled adblock and was amazed at how many there are now.

    I use Adblock Plus and I am able to turn it off on just certain websites if I need to because the site requires it to use it. Then as soon as I leave that site, it is back on when I access the next site. I am sure that someone here who is more savvy, which would be just about anyone, may have a better solution for you. Even on this site, I leave the Adblock Plus on unless I need to go to Amazon to make and purchase. I turn it off then so that I can access Amazon from the link at the top of the page so that CrackerCoast gets credit for the purchase. I use Chrome as well.

    Hmm I don't use any adblock, what you have to think about is What are they getting out of the service ? Is there some person out there providing this software and its updates as a humanitarian social contribution effort (like your Cracker host) or is that software making money from providing your browsing habits to others? Simply , the pop up blockers built in to chrome and firefox are completely adequate. I found years ago that many if not most of those cyber ointments are the source of internet ailes not the prevention or cure
