I am sure that all of you have seen banner ads all over the web sites that you visit daily.  In recent years these ads are becoming more and more malicious.  These ads are so bad that you don’t even need to click on it to get an infection.  Even trusted sites such as Yahoo are being infested with these ads.

The malicious ads spread malware, spyware, virus and ransomware.  Even if they don’t do any harm, these ads are just sometimes annoying.  One way to prevent these ads from loading in the first place is with browser extension called uBlock Origin.  The extension can be customized to block as much ad as you want.  Of course you may also choose to white list sites as needed.

Another advantage of blocking ads is that the web pages will load faster.  You will also notice that your web browsing experience will be improved and will never browse without it.
