    Question is whats the most annoying ad format for you as a surfer?:mad:

    For example popunder (and its varieties like tabunder).
    It's no secret that this one is the most profitable format for publishers, and users are already used to it, as a their fee for free content. Using popunder on your websites?

    Other example - fake download buttons on banners. Even adsense sins with such creatures on sites with files, such as download.cnet:confused:

    Do you use any ad block? How effective is yours?

    I use Adblock Plus with Firefox -- this website is whitelisted.
    Self defense from 'internet garbage.'
    (x) Strict
    Stronger protection, may cause some sites to break.Known trackers in all windows
    Third-party tracking cookies, Cryptominers, Fingerprinters​
    Works 99% ;)

    I will use Chrome (this machine's Chrome doesn't have any extensions -- runs in developer mode) to see as the common user would.
    Inspect a domain/site for whatever.

    Haven't seen them ;)
    I hope people (advertisers) are not being charged for the ads I don't see (in reality) ...

    I find the browser push ads annoying that you would subscribe to. I have deleted 'most/all' of those subscriptions.

    But I am not the 'normal browser'
    • Like my neighbor says: I work on the computer :D
    • He trims trees -- different concepts of what is work.
    He approaches the internet as a toy or entertainment like many do ;)

    Advertisers
    Advertisers usually pay for every landing page loaded, to my experience 80% of popunder users close window before full page loado_O
