iPad Safari ad blocker: how to choose the best variant
There are a few things that we pay attention to when testing the applications to make a list of tops five apps. The first is the ease of installation and first launch. The next is checking how it copes with its major task. Here we mean ad blocking. And some other factors that make our decision final are the attractiveness of the interface and how each app consumes battery.
This application performs its functions in a great way. It blocks ads but we should admit that we have seen a few ads after launching Adblock Plus. Reviews are controversial, so I cannot fully rely on the opinion of someone else.
