Thanks for the honest article.
I've never used an ad-blocker on the desktop but I'm giving Crystal a go on my phone. Websites have become so bloated these days and ads are just part of the problem. Anything that speeds up the experience is going to get a thumbs up from me.
Advertisers, like tax avoiders, will find ways to get around the blocks though. There's just too much money at stake. I'm expecting a big increase in inline advertising.
