Best Ad Blockers (And How to Easily Block Ads, Trackers)

Are you that one person in a million who enjoys seeing ads splattered all over the web pages you visit? One of those rare internet users who likes sitting through one or more ads every time you watch a video on YouTube?

Didnít think so.

While we understand that many people make money from ads on their websites or in their videos, online advertising can be really annoying. We certainly donít like ads, which is why you wonít see any ads anywhere on our website.

When we link you to someone elseís website, or to a YouTube video, you might be subjected to ads, but those are out of our control.

Ads can mess up your online experience in oh so many ways. One of the annoying things about ads is simply how much space they take up. Assuming your goal in visiting a website is to see the unique content there, ads can make that simple task harder by cluttering up the display.

3. I installed Duck Duck Go in my chrome browser and no more ads.

Works really great and is free, but does not block utube from those pre-video ads.

Sometimes a site will ask me to disable and it is very easy to do, best free ad blocker I have found and it replaced my search engine so I am no longer tracked by google searches, which was my main reason for installing.
