Trying to read the U.K. “Daily Mail“, my favorite newspaper for over 40-years, with Chrome, on my 10″ Android Tablet had become quite the chore. The latest HUGE banner, at the bottom, of the screen, was the last straw. It was like trying to read something through a slit.
I had enough.
Yes, I fully appreciate that it costs a lot of money to provide the level of news they do. But, they can’t be so obnoxious.
I tried an Ad Blocker. Didn’t do anything. Yes, I will confess that I refuse to use their APP and insist on reading it in a browser — in desktop-mode.
So, on a whim I went back to Firefox. I have no qualms about that. I was one of the original advocates of Firefox way back in the late 1990s. I convinced quite a few to switch to Firefox. And I have never had anything against Firefox. Just assumed that Google is ‘one-stop-shopping’. But, I was wrong.
I have only been using Firefox, with the Daily Mail, for a few minutes. Yes, you still get Ads — like the top banner. But, so far, I haven’t had as many pop-up ads. that were ruining my reading experience.
