I’m a very, very late convert to smartphones, but I love having that power in the palm of my hand. What I don’t like is when I’m trying to read something or browse a site and I accidentally hit an advertisement while trying to scroll down on a page. It’s the worst, it’s disruptive, and I feel like every misplaced finger is going to completely ruin my phone. Not sure why I feel like that, but there you go. Thankfully, after months of looking for a solution, a solution has been given to me. Adblock Plus now has a web browser.
That’s phenomenal. Working off of the Firefox/Mozilla base, Adblock Plus’s developers have launched an ad-blocking browser for Apple and Android. That’s pretty great, and they’re beating Apple to the punch by a few days on the ad-blocking browser front. I haven’t tried the browser out yet, but I’m going to get there and I know it’s going to be awesome. It’s not as good as having an installed ad blocker for Chrome on my phone, but at this point I’ll gladly change browsers to give myself a little freedom of scrolling.Technorati Tags: ad blocking for smartphones, ad blocking web browser, adblock browser, adblock plus, adblock plus browser, adblock web browser, smartphone browser, smartphones, web browser blocks ads, web browser with adblock built in
