Save that money
Email ads used to be amazing. Companies would send you a notification as soon as a sale was happening, and you felt like you were getting the scoop on the best deals in town. Then more and more companies started doing it, and you thought “this is awesome, so many deals”. Well now we have a problem. Hundreds of emails a day telling you to buy, BUY, BUYYYYYYY!
Adblockers are simple tools that strip away the ads from your web browsing and eliminate the chance of you clicking on the wrong link, sending you down a vortex of adware, spyware and viruses.
No matter what web browser you’re using, you can get an adblocker – and I’ll give you everything you need to do it in only a couple minutes.
Best Adblockers out there
What do I use? – uBlock Origin
I use uBlock origin for two reasons:
- I’m a nerd
- It’s highly configurable
One important item about adblockers that is worth considering is the idea of acceptable ads. This is a new idea that some of the adblockers are taking on. Allowing specific advertisements to pass through their blocking. Personally, I am interested in blocking all ads, and don’t think that an acceptable ad program is a good idea. All they are doing is creating a two tiered system, one where if a company has enough money, they can get their ads through.
Since I don’t agree with this, I’ve chosen an adblocker that reflects my position – uBlock Origin
