I have kids. And kids need some help on the internet to avoid traps and sneaky ads. But I’ve found that adults need help too, and as a result, I recommend that everybody install AD BLOCK PLUS on their computers.
It removes all the advertising (except for advertisng that Ad BlockPlus has already deemed to be safe and non-deceptive) from all web sites. Ad Block Plus is created by a non-profit company devoted to making the internet safer for everyone.
You can find the program here: https://adblockplus.org/
