Browser ad blockers help reduce bandwidth usage, speed up webpage displays, but not everyone likes the idea of blocking ads. Jeffrey Mincey:
Limit the cookies and that limits the tracking. Anybody got a problem with that? Yes. Advertisers, and among them, Google is the largest. Google also pays Apple a few billion dollars a year to be the default search engine on Safari, so it might seem Apple is biting the hand that feeds it but it’s not.
Safari’s new anti-tracking method, combined with ad blockers and other anti-tracking utilities make for a much better browsing experience.
I’m proud to say I use an ad blocker.
