On my iPhone i just use the adblock app. Blocks ads from all other apps, not just websites. On PC and Android I use Firefox browser and just install
the adblock browser extension. You can install most extensions now on the mobile version it seems, at least on Android.
These companies care not how much work is lost or how much stress it causes people with their extremely intrusive ads. Back in the day, I'd go to a
webpage and simply see blocks of ads on the side of the webpage that were relevant to me. They weren't animated, didn't take up resources, didn't
redirect me or do other nefarious things. AND, I actually clicked on them!! In fact, I used to click on those ads just to help the people running the
website I was on.
These companies are just hurting themselves now days because understandably people now use things like adblock just out of spite to get them back
where it hurts. If they would go back to a more simplified system for ads I guarantee people would not use adblock nearly as much, and they wouldn't
mind a few simple clicks if they see something that interests them. I will never feel guilty about using ad blockers, especially since the situation
is just getting worse and more intrusive.
