I just received a new MacBookAir and the ads are driving me mad. I've done a search and nothing works. *pulling
my hair out*

I haven't kept up with it, but I used to find that a combination of 'adblock plus' and 'noscript' was able to keep things under control - to a point. But would sometimes require some manual intervention.

I use uBlock Origin, a Firefox extension, since it is easy on the CPU and memory. It is not an adblocker, but actually a content blocker with lots of ways of customizing what you want to filter. It works much better in my opinion.

On my MAC, I use Duckduckgo as the search engine and 1Blocker to kill tracer programs like googleads and other nasties that go bump on the page.

I think I'm lost in the fun house. None of the suggestions have worked so far. I have to BUY a blocker from
the Apple App Store. "They" get you coming' and goin'.
