So, did anyone try Atomic Web Browser and block the Ad's?

 

I installed the full Atomic Web Browser and the Ad's still show up, usually right over where you want to type. Very annoying. I did check the settings and the Atomic Ad Blocker is checked on.

That is different than my iPad, I looked just now and not an Ad to be seen.  I have no explanation, stumped.

90% of the time, I visit this site thru my phone and the default Chrome browser. I've never had a single problem with ads. For my occasional pc visits, I use Firefox with AdBlock Plus. No problems there either. Makes me wonder if there's not some sort of malware issue that people have picked up either here, but possibly elsewhere...

On the iPad, the ads always say "you may be interested in, xxxxxxx, download now". Seems like scrolling triggers the ads to appear, they then display for a few seconds, then fade, soon as you scroll, they reappear.

It looks like the Atomic Web browser LITE does not have the ad blocking capabilities of the paid version.  Oh well.

And the stupid things always pop-up over the post you are trying to read.  Very irritating.  :zombi:

You are correct, I'd forgotten that when I got AWB long ago it was a free intro offer, but the 'full' version.

I never used it but re-installed it just to see what would happen, being the 'paid' version it works well.

Sorry for the misinformation.

Let us know if you are successful and I will uninstall the adblocker.

You missed the point, advertising is what pays for the forum.  It's just that annoying pop-up that made it unusable.  I have no problem with the advertising section at the top of the page.  It doesn't get in my way.  If everyone installed an adblocker there would be no money to pay for the forum.

Maybe it is you who missed the point.

 

If every online site used some moderation and common sense in the frequency and placement of their ads, then there would be no NEED for a product like AdBlocker in the first place.

 

I started using it when one site started putting ads IN THE MIDDLE OF POSTS.  Talk about obnoxious and confusing !!!

 

To be completely fair, I think it is the Ad purveyors who are doing the damage but the site owners seen to have given them free run of what comes in and how it is presented so the owners have to share some of the blame.

We could easily install an anti-ad blocker to block the ad blocker, however, that won't happen.

 

Ads are an important piece to keep the site open, but these popup ads are toooooo much to bare!

I am successfully using AdBlocker to block these pop-ups. When they are removed, I will disable it for this site to allow the other display ads.

Based on those pop up ads, I cannot blame you!   I found the root cause of the ads and deleted it - they are gone!  :thumbsup:

 

Thanks to everyone who commented on this

Thanks Robert,
I'm glad it was fixed as I found some sites were stalled by the ad blocker. I couldn't even get successfully signed on there.
Back to normal now.
