I switched to firefox for Android a while ago. Just install plugins and use your favorite adblocker

This.

uBlock origin works great on firefox.

IMO the UI is better than Chrome's on Android anyway.

The annoying scrolling is a deal breaker though

I didn't realize you could install addons to the firefox app. I'm installing uBlock Origin now!

Eh, I wish Adblock would take a more "middle of the road" approach and whitelist non-intrusive ads by default while blocking more annoying ones like redirects, fake links, videos and so on.

Ad blocking software is growing, and no one can stop it... Unless ad hosts AND ad blockers take a more moderate approach, many websites will hit a breaking point where their ad revenue can't sustain their hosting costs. A arms race between web admins and ad blocking software is brewing, and it's not gonna be fun...

Erm... but AdBlock already does this by default. In both the Chrome extension and the new browser, they have an option (that is checked by default) to allow or disallow non-intrusive advertising. As far as I remember, they have been offering this option in the extension for quite a while.

Good, fuck ads. Base an entire source of profit around jamming their product down people's throats, I hope they get theirs.

It's an unpopular opinion but you're totally right. Sure if the trend continues webmasters will have to change strategies, dunno maybe they'll start selling our informations if those will still be worth something...

The webmasters and ad companies are the ones that initiated Practices to make this necessary in the first place.

Don't smack me in the face with an ad that makes me have to burn a calorie to bypass. If you do, I will do what it takes to avoid it.

If you want your ad to be present, chill out with how obtrusive it is and I'll let it stay.

We'll probably see more sponsored content, aka ads disguised as real articles. You can't block ads if they're mixed with what you want to see.

I have been using adblock exclusively since you posted this. It is slow. . . . I have also seen an add or two. On the good side - I don't know how many adds were blocked and it certainly is blocking many. I will probably continue to use adblock, but may get ublock for Firefox app and try that then post again. I hope they fix the speed.

I already have AdAway installed. Does anyone think this would still be worthwhile?

(And while we're at it, about about the Make The Internet Suck Less hosts file? How many layers should I use?)
