The internet is this wonderful source of info....except it is overrun with these big, flashy, page-stealing, attention grabbing ads. Adding injury to insult, many of the ad networks are slow to load, and greatly delay page display of some top tier websites.
Block the ads and it's like a beautiful private garden that someone else weeds.
If google text ads is all there ever were, I don't think I would have bothered. But the ads we have are really obnoxious -- many browsers agree -- look how yahoo with their strong display ads and google with text ads have fared over the last 10 years. People don't like the annoying ads, most just don't know how to fix it.
