I know that ad blockers aren't anti-virus and anti-malware, but did not knew any place where I could post a thread about them.

 

With the trend of adblockers and websites trying to keep people not to use them on their websites (and the fear of being caught at some malvertising thing), I would like to get to question to the experienced fellows of this board.

 

Is that necessary for us all the time to keep the adblockers on?

What to keep blocked? What not?

How to surf safe in the Internet with or without them and not fear an exploit install a fearsome malware into your machine?

 

Well, just because I am reading stuff about that now and the doubts are mounting into my head...

Besides wanting to put food on website owners tables, any particular reason you would want to get ads?

 

If you feel the irresistible urge to see some ads, Adblock Plus does include an option to allow some non-intrusive advertising:

If you meant of having adblockers plugins installed on browsers or not for computer users, the chances are some sites display ads that populate most of the webpage not including some popup ads. It is better if you have one installed such as Ublock origin. It would be much better if you let the plugin use the default settings unless you knew of the website content or becomes broken of which you would need to allow by configuring.
