I had noticed using ABP in Chrome lately I have to temporarily disable ABP/reload the odd Youtube video or I get audio, but no video. I don't mind video ads so much, but if obnoxious/insecure pop-up ads etc. start weaseling around ad-blockers en-masse, I will have to stop using the Internet I think.

Ghostery blocks what ublock doesn't for me.

Ublock Origin and Ghostery for Chrome is awesome.

Once Firefox. Always firefox. With ublock origin installed obviously.
I whole heartedly concur.

Lots of porn ads,despite not looking for porn with ublock. I think they are replacing the space that would have served ads with built in porn crap in the event the ad was blocked. Almost drowning in SFM porn type of stuff.

^^^Same for me. I have no idea what's going on for some of the folks in this topic, whether it's bad filter settings, or because they're on a different browser or what, but I'm thankful to say no ads for me.

Native ads? You mean like back in the '60s and '70s when Johnny Carson would hold up a product and shill it at the end of his monologue?


Ads embedded into the videos themselves. A few people on this board mentioned running into them a little while back.

I haven't as of yet, but my understanding is they were in some vids that were over something like 45 minutes. I don't really watch many videos that long or longer, so that might be why I've not run into them.

I just DL the entire YouTube video and watch when I want to.

The only ads are the ones YouTubers put in themselves.

Nothing from YouTube the OverLording Company.
